Access Corrections™ was formed by Keefe Group to respond to new and evolving technology needs within the correctional industry.
Access Corrections™ focuses exclusively on corrections by developing new technologies and services which increase the efficiencies and security throughout the correctional industry.
Access Corrections™ is leading the way on several fronts by streamlining the way the industry manages and processes the flow of information, financial transactions and entertainment for inmates and their families.
SAFETY, SECURITY, & EFFICIENCY
Access Secure Deposits™ by Access Corrections™ allows family members to deposit funds into an inmate’s account in the easiest, most efficient way available!
Now family and friends have the flexibility to deposit funds in more convenient ways, increasing spendable cash in the inmate’s account – affording greater inmate spending and return to the facility.
Friends and family have the ability to deposit funds through an array of options:
• Our toll-free, bi-lingual call center at 1-866-345-1884
• Online at www.accesscorrections.com
• Walk up kiosk located in the facility
Access Corrections™ introduces Access Secure Mail™, the electronic mail service designed exclusively for the correctional market to eliminate contraband and facility time in processing traditional mail. Through the Access Secure Mail™ program, family and friends are able to send electronic mail to inmates. The mail is processed through our Data Detective™ investigative software, which identifies and reports key words and phrases. Once approved by the facility, the mail can be printed, sent for download to our digital music player or sent to our Edge™ kiosk for the inmate to retrieve.
The Access Secure Mail™ service couldn’t be easier to use. Users simply select the inmate by booking number or name, type the message and send! Family and friends not only love the convenience of the Access Secure Mail™ services—no stamps or driving to the post office —but the feature most important to them is the timeliness with which they can get a message to their loved one. While the U.S. mail can take up to five days, depending on location, Access Secure Mail™ messages arrive at the facility in real time for review and in most cases are approved and delivered to the inmate within 24 hours.
Access Corrections™ has developed Access Secure Release™, the most innovative release card solution!
Stop releasing inmates with sensitive information such as bank account and routing numbers found on your facility’s release checks and eliminate handling, managing and reconciling cash. With Access Secure Release, you can simply load detainees' remaining balances onto pre-paid debit cards and send them on their way.
There are many benefits to Access Secure Release including:
• The program is provided at no cost to your facility.
• The program eliminates the responsibilities of managing and reconciling cash and checks.
• The program eliminates exposure to check fraud and cash mismanagement.
• The program provides instant access to funds when the inmate is released.
• The card works everywhere MasterCard is accepted.
• Surcharge free at participating credit union locations.
We’ve also developed a financial literacy package to educate the inmate on the advantages of receiving the pre-paid card and the additional banking benefits that come with our program.
Upon activation, the card holder is automatically enrolled in the following services:
• FREE direct deposit.
• FREE peer-to-peer funds transfers.
• FREE ability to add money to the card at partner credit unions nationwide.
• The ability to remain debt free —the cardholder is only able to spend what’s on the card.
• 100% of the inmate's funds are transferred onto the card when they are released.
Access Corrections™ introduces Access Secure Photo™, giving family and friends the ability to send pictures to inmates electronically.
Through Access Secure Photo™, pictures can be sent to inmates electronically separate from Access Secure Mail™. This feature eases the concern of unapproved photo attachments being viewed with approved messages. Facility staff will realize time savings through the ability to review up to 36 photos at one time rather than clicking on each individual photo. Access Secure Photo™ also eliminates the possibility of contraband which can be hidden in traditional photographs and under stamps that are sent through the mail. Upon approval, photos can be printed, sent for download to our digital music player or sent to our inmate kiosk.
There are many benefits to Access Secure Photo™ including:
• Eliminates the potential for contraband.
• Authorized facility staff can easily review and approve ALL secure photos.
• Decreases workload for mailroom staff.
• Eliminates costs for returning unapproved photos.
• All photos are electronically saved for future recall and investigative purposes.
• Inmates have the ability to stay connected and be a part of special occasions and the daily lives of family and friends.
Access to Entertainment:
Access Corrections™ introduces the Access to Entertainment™ MP3 player and program, specifically designed and manufactured for greater safety and security in the correctional industry.
Each player comes programmed with the inmate’s DOC #, eliminating the necessity for engraving by the facility. The player also has built in features to prevent and deter theft, including a termination feature which disables the functionality of the player if reported lost or stolen.
The program has over 5 million songs already in the player’s music catalog for the inmates to choose from, enabling the inmate to search and select songs without being connected to any device or kiosk. For security purposes, the player is made of clear construction and does not have any moving or removable parts, recording devices, microphones or speakers.
The only advanced software of its kind available to the corrections industry, Data Detective™ works in conjunction with Access Corrections™ technology services.
Data Detective™ is the most powerful investigative tool for identifying and connecting individuals on the outside who have interacted with multiple inmates. Interaction includes our services such as deposits made through our Access Secure Deposits™ program, as well as electronic mail and pictures through our Access Secure Mail™ program.
The Data Detective™ software automatically identifies key words and phrases for review and investigative purposes. Once a connection is made, the software will find and report any additional connections with other inmates and those on the outside.
