Campbell inmates go online for face time

NEWPORT, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky jail is among the first in the area to try out Internet visitations for inmates.

The Campbell County Detention center began offering off-site Internet access visitations similar to Skype earlier this month.

Jailer James Daley told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://bit.ly/1bXEmBx) that the system would provide additional security at the jail, decrease the amount of jail staff time spent on visitations and give an advantage to inmates' families.

It is similar to a system used at the Rutherford County Jail in Murfreesboro, Tenn., which as offered online visitation since May.

Rutherford Jail Lt. Chris Deal says it has increased safety and allowed inmate to bond with loved ones.
