TDCJ video teleconferencing saves time and money

 

illustration of conference room with peopleWell into its second decade of service, the TDCJ video teleconferencing network continues to grow. In 1996, the agency began with 12 video teleconferencing sites for offender hearings. The network currently hosts 64 sites across the state to provide media support for statewide administrative meetings, trainings, interviews, project management, and distance learning and hearings for offenders. The network is designed to provide teleconference facilities within a one-hour drive of each agency facility, and some sites are available on a 24-hour basis with prior approval from the Communications Department.

For information about videoconference training and scheduling, contact Deanie Rose or Tracey Hill at 936-437-1720 or check the Information Technology Division’s Web page. Facility locations are listed below.
