State Prisoners To Receive Tablet Computers
The New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision plans to give tablet computers to all inmates in state prison. According to the department the tablets are being paid for by a company called JPay which according to its website allows inmates to keep in touch with family and friends. Officials say inmates will use the tablets to access free educational material in E-books and to file grievances. The plan will go into effect later this year.
