Video Visitation

It has come to the Department’s attention that GTL video visitation opportunities have been limited for individuals who solely rely on Apple products for video visits. As a result, the Department is offering Webex as an alternative video visitation platform for families and loved ones who rely on Apple products. GTL will provide FREE video visits for their users until the GTL platform is compatible with Apple products. Webex visits will also be free. Please note that video visits provided by GTL and Webex will be subject to monitoring and recording.
