The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office will be the first law enforcement agency in Arizona to begin using a new technology in their jail that will enable inmates to receive visitors through computer terminals. Inmates at the Pinal County Adult Detention Center will be able to visit with their friends, family and attorneys without the visitor having to travel to the facility. iWebVisit.com is the inventor of this third generation technology which allows visitation via the “cloud” from any home, office or other remote location with a high speed internet connection. Using their sophisticated and secure patent pending technology, iWebVisit.com will have a number of Video Visitation Stations in the detention center which will allow inmates to participate in pre-scheduled visits. iWebVisit.com debuted the technology at a facility in Washoe County, Nevada in 2010. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office will be the first Arizona law enforcement agency to use the new technology. Since the technology unveiled in on April 15th, 2013, there have been more than 60 remote visits. The cost for iWebVisit.com is $15 per 30-minute remote video visitation session.

It is no secret that in recent years, Congress has had a low approval rating. People are tired of the political rhetoric and lack of action—especially when it comes to jobs and the economy. However, it is rare to see a poll conducted to survey rural citizens about their local governments.
