Video Conferencing

Why It Matters

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Video conferencing technology allows for remote participation in courtroom proceedings. This in turn allows for a reduction in Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department inmate transportation costs and Michigan Department of Corrections prisoner transport costs. Adjournments and postponements of proceedings can also be avoided due to the flexibility of video conferencing which in turn saves more time and money. It also improves public safety by avoiding prisoner transports and increases health safety by using video conferencing to avoid the spread of communicable diseases.
