Many of them cannot see their families, and they feel depressed and alone on the special day. A company named Securus Technologies decided to create something that could allow the inmates to feel like they are part of the holiday. They made the Christmas video visits where the inmates were permitted to watch a video of their family during the holiday.
The Christmas video visits lift the spirits of the inmates. They can see and hear their families when they opening gifts and eating their meal. It is important to them that they are part of the holiday too. With the good feeling that they have, the correction facilities are peaceful and free from crime.
