Default Tablets at Arkansas Valley rumor

I have heard a rumor that they are doing a trial run for the new tablets at Arkansas Valley. Does anyone have someone there that they can confirm?

I've been meaning to do a tablet update, just been under the weather. There is a new tablet program that they are starting at Ark Valley. Not everyone will get tablets. Inmates classified as medium level and below will have the opportunity to check out tablets on a first come first serve basis. They have to have adequate funds in their account. Also, there will only be 6 tablets per unit. If it works, the program will be rolled out to other facilities.

Thanks for the information It doesn't sound very good with only 6 per unit and it sounds like they have to rent them. Might as well not have them is my thought.

That doesn’t sound good. That will mean some inmates won’t get any access to the tablets . I agree might as well not have them.

Yeah it's for renting.....plus its only for games and music. Theres still no messaging on them. Colorado are severely behind the times with this stuff. I really hope Dean Wiliams plans on improving the access to communication to the outside world for our guys x

Colorado were way ahead with tablets to every inmate and messaging and calls. Now they seem way behind. What a shame that they think that this huge reduction in service is the way forward.

Offenders will be able to have video visits when they check out the tablets.

Well that will be a bonus let’s hope they roll that out across the facilities and they return messaging and calls and it’s happy days.

And if there are only 6 per unit it will be very hard for many to be able to use them. Some facilities have 300+ people per unit. Bad idea again DOC.

Yup the messaging and the phones were the big advantage. Now just music and games and just six between 100s . A lot of inmates will have no chance to use them. Not a good idea let’s hope they rethink.

My man is at Limon. He called me today on a tablet. Said that he thought he could do a video but didn't know how.
