Hamilton Co. inmates will have digital visitation option

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

Hamilton County inmates will now have more options when it comes to visitation with family.

County commissioners approved a plan Wednesday to allow inmates at the jail to talk with family members through the Internet.

The digital visitation allows family members to use their home computers or tablets to visit with inmates.

Online visitation will cost family members 60 cents per minute.

Commissioners say the digital communication will help reduce over-crowding during visitation hours.
