Gold pass on JailATM refers to the thing that allows inmates to have unlimited tablet usage for 24 hours. If you are one of the JailATM users and are interested in God Pass, you can check out the following information before purchasing it.
The St. Landry Parish Jail has teamed up with Brother’s Commissary to offer handled tablet devices. The tablet was created especially for corrections. It is known as the advanced tool that uses cutting edge technology. With the tablet, the inmates will be able to communicate with people outside the world. Not only that, they can also learn a few things and enjoy entertainment.
The tablets are easy to use. Besides, they are also effective for the inmates to connect with their loved ones in the real world. The tablet gives access to a number of things, such as games, music, ordering commissary, completing grievances, requesting a nurse visit, PREA inquiries, account balance inquiries, and general question inquiries.
Are inmates allowed to use the tablets freely? Are there any limitations? For your information, it is only possible for every inmate to use a tablet for free for only 15 minutes every 3 hours. However, there is a way to make the time longer. If they want to access the tablet longer, they will have to purchase a gold pass. By purchasing this kind of pass, they will be able to get unlimited access to the tablet. It means, they will be able to access tablets 24 hours a day.
If you are a family member or a friend of an inmate who is currently sitting in jail, you are also able to purchase a gold pass. If you are interested in purchasing a gold pass, you can purchase it through JailATM.
