New Phone System for Rockland County Jail Will Record Calls

Plans to install new phones at the Rockland County Jail will include the ability to record inmates’ conversations. According to Sheriff Louis Falco the current system is provided through a company in Virginia known as Global Tel Link Corp. through a contract which gives the county $103,000 a year. With the new contract recently approved by the Legislature the county will receive $151,000, which will be used to fund rehabilitation programs for inmates. Falco stated that taping calls will help the department with investigations and prisoner control and the inmates will be warned that their calls are being recorded by signs near the phone stations.
