Where the jail used to allow only two visits a week per inmate, now the facility is allowing folks to visit more often — for 25 cents per minute or $7.50 for a half-hour
"For those who can afford to have more visits, they can pay for those," the jail's boss, Capt. Kim Edmondson, told the paper.
The money raised by such ingenuity will go to upgrading some jail technology. But, judging by the photo, the place is already pretty high-tech, with its computer monitor and digital icons. Especially compared to the visiting booths at the Spokane County Jail and its scratched windows.
