They do a back ground check to make sure you aren't shady. The phones are always recorded, but only monitored by a real person if certain buzz words trip the computer to listen. Right low thr 15 minute video visits are free. Video visits permanently would be a double edged sword to DOC. Yes, it would cut the cost of CO's etc, BUT they lose all the money from the vending machines and the towns lose the money from far away visitors. The system they have in now is temporary. If they go to permanent video visits kiosks must be installed. At the moment they are seriously behind in the tablet distribution time line. We are hoping for both, but who knows what DOC will ultimately do
