INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — Tablets could soon be available to all inmates inside Indiana prisons.
The Indiana Department of Correction is negotiating with Virginia-based Global Tel Link to make it happen.
Inmates wouldn't be charged for the tablets, but services such as movie rentals and music subscriptions would carry inflated prices.
The higher prices would generate profits for the company and help create a secure network.
According to the current bid, Global Tel Link could make more than $6 million a year and Indiana could collect $750,000.
