Corrlinks Helps Prisoners
Corrlinks helps communication for prisoners.
Corrlinks is basically email, but for those incarcerated. It is a fee based service that inmates can use to send and receive email. Federal prisons are already using the service and certain states are making Corrlinks available as well, such as Iowa.
All federal inmates aren't allowed to used Corrlinks and there are certain restrictions. There are inmates who are convicted of federal crimes that are related to the internet and those prisoners don't have the same privileges of use.
Those convicted of crimes such as insider trading and wire fraud like the infamous Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme apparently have some type of access. The term is featured in the New York Times and referred to as Jail Mail.
There are numerous security measures before family and friends of an inmate are allowed to communicate with an inmate. Those in communication are required to validate an identification code and agree to certain terms and conditions that Corrlinks strictly requires.
