Pennsylvania county saves $200,000 annually with fiber link between jail and courthouse

Pennsylvania county saves $200,000 annually with video link between jail and courthouse

"We've cut down on man hours needed to transport prisoners, inmates are moving through the system more quickly, and all the courtrooms are being utilized," said the judge. "Everybody is being more efficient."

"Deputy Court Administrator Jack Mulroy said he proposed the idea of video conferencing to Judge Conahan several years ago because he was concerned about safety issues at the courthouse. He said the overwhelming cost savings was a benefit he never anticipated ... Sheriff Barry Stankus lauded video conferencing as a valuable tool that has freed up deputies to help maintain his department's ever-growing workload."
