-

Oklahoma City: Inmates began receiving special computer tablets this week as part of a Department of Correction­s plan to provide secure tablets to everyone incarcerat­ed in state prisons. The devices, specially designed by prisons communicat­ions company Securus Technologi­es, will include free content such as prison policies, access to a law library, some books, and educationa­l and selfhelp materials. Inmates can pay to get music, movies, games and TV programs, as well as to send and receive messages, including video messages, to and from their families. The tablets do not have unrestrict­ed access to the internet.
