The Telephone is a
Lifeline for Prison Families
Families in Massachusetts are paying $24 million a year for phone calls with their incarcerated loved ones. This is unfair, and unacceptable. Strong family ties while incarcerated has been shown to reduce recidivism, and making phone calls to loved ones is essential to staying connected with their families.
The phone rates at houses of correction are set by county sheriffs, and as your Norfolk County Sheriff, I'll make sure that these outrageous costs are lowered and not pushed onto the families of those that are incarcerated.
