Free tablets will be given to those incarcerated in New York State Prisons.
The tablets will give inmates access to eBooks, music, and other educational content. It will have no internet. A secure email system will allow prisoners to communicate with family and friends.
JPay is a company that provides corrections-related services. They are giving the tablets as part of a deal with New York’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. JPay will earn revenue from inmates who choose to buy more eBooks or other items with the tablet. No State Funds will be used to purchase the tablets.
Officials believe that with access to technology, inmates will be able to reintegrate into the community once they leave prison
