Default NJ still does not have Video Calling

I find it very sad that NJ still does not have video calling when most other states do. Our loved ones are in prison and our children are being punished because of it. There is no visitation because of the way the Covid-19 went through the prison like wild fire when they knew it was going to. The visitation stopped about March 20 something and nothing since. The telephone calling is horrible along with the Jpay video's they are suppose to be trying to send back and forth. With all of that said NJ State completely let the ball drop on keeping the prisoners safe during this time. Who else has kids that haven't seen their parent in a while and is having the same opinion as me...Please help the kids and write to your commissioner Hicks.

Covid or no Covid, I think not having video visitation is awful. There are 'visitors' who may not be able to make the trip to the prison (they may live out of state, for instance, or Grammy is in hospice) even without Covid, even if visitation was open and running as usual.

I hope that when NJ renews there communications contract, they'll bring in video visitation.
