The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office launched a new inmate video visitation program called HomeWAV.
The new video system allows inmates to conduct video visits with friends and family members. With the HomeWAV visitation system the available visitation can now be expanded for inmates. The new system will also allow inmates to visit with their children, relatives and family from both in state and out of state. Access is also available for attorneys and clergy.
The HomWAV visitation systems installed in David L. Moss consist of a telephone handset, keypad, webcam, PC, and a video monitor. Four units have been placed in the programs room of each general housing unit as well as one unit placed in the juvenile unit.
General hours the system can be accessed will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., 7 days a week, except during count or lock down times.
To use the system, a person on the outside logs onto www.homewav.com and sets up a pay pal account for access. Once they have been approved they may begin receiving video visits from an inmate.
The video visits are limited to 20 minutes per visit and cost $.50 per minute. The user on the outside must have web access and a web camera. For those that do not have outside availability, there have been units installed in the visitation waiting area at David L. Moss.
