Pennsylvania jail to offer video visits for $15 per session

A western Pennsylvania county jail plans to start offering online video visits with inmates next month as a way to raise money for the county.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports Westmoreland County officials have hired Renovo Software of Edina, Minnesota, to install web cameras at several locations in the county jail, about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Inmates are already allowed three weekly in-person visits with up to three people at once. Those visits last 30 minutes.

Under the new policy, inmates could also arrange up to two 25-minute video visits each week. The county will charge $15 per visit, with about $12.75 of that money going into the county's general fund.

Warden John Walton says that once video visits are occurring, inmates will be allowed just one in-person visit per week.
