Workshop on Further Reform of Inmate Calling Services

July 9, 2014, 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM EDT
Commission Meeting Room, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, DC

On September 26, 2013, the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) released the Inmate Calling Services Report and Order and FNPRM, which adopted interim rules and sought “comment on additional measures [it] could take to ensure that interstate and intrastate [inmate calling services] are provided consistent with the statute and public interest, the Commission’s authority to implement these measures, and the pros and cons of each measure.”

To analyze the impact of the reforms and gather information to inform additional reforms of inmate calling services (ICS), the Commission held a workshop on Wednesday, July 9, 2014. Topics for the workshop included state reforms of ICS, the cost characteristics of the provision of ICS in different correctional facilities, the regulation of ancillary charges, and non-traditional communications technologies used in correctional settings.
