Jail Visits

There was an interesting front page article in yesterday’s Denver Post dealing with the possibility of Denver’s two jails reinstating face to face visits between inmates and their families. Familial visits are now restricted to video visitation. I know from experience how heartbreaking it is to communicate with family member through a video monitor. The first week of my incarceration was devastating for my family and me, and the impersonal nature of our initial visit was extremely difficult for all of us.
