Video Visits from Home:
Accept video visits on the go! Your incarcerated loved one can initiate a video visit from the tablet without needing to schedule ahead of time. You will need to create an account at www.gettingout.com and download the getting out the mobile app to receive video visits. Be sure to be signed into the mobile app and have push notifications turned on.
All onsite video visits take place in the visitation lobby and must be scheduled ahead of time. There is no charge for an onsite video visit. These can be scheduled by the visitor during open lobby hours. If a visit is scheduled for you, you will see it under the video visits app. You will need to accept the visit. Then at the scheduled time, the visitor can connect from the lobby, and all the tablets will have a pop-up notification displaying the name of the inmate who has a visit. That inmate can take a tablet to the docking station and log in to be connected to the visitor.
Friends and family may deposit funds into an inmate's commissary account to be used for phone calls or for any other allowed purpose. Alternatively, friends and family can deposit money to their own prepaid account and fund a specific telephone number.
To create an account and deposit funds on your telephone number, contact IC Solutions:
