It may be called corrections, but constraints for facilities and their incarcerated populations often means a lack of opportunity for meaningful rehabilitation. In reality, the vast majority of the 2.2 million incarcerated spend more time on daytime television than anything else.
Shrinking budgets and security requirements limit the ability of jails and prisons to deliver programming.
Although education is shown to decrease recidivism by 43%, 4 out of 5 of those in custody don't have regular access.
Of the 1.35 million inmates in state prisons, 76.6% of released individuals will be re-arrested within 5 years.
How can the average facility provide meaningful rehabilitation and programming to their population despite all of these constraints?
Edovo's secure tablet technology is the future of daily education and rehabilitation for corrections. Edovo helps to unlock the potential of incarcerated individuals and build pathways for them to make positive changes.

It's been a great program from day one. Edovo provides a comprehensive learning platform that the inmates truly enjoy using. The best part, and what separates Edovo from all other vendors, is that everything for the inmate is free. Another great perk is staff buy-in. The staff WANT to work the modules that have tablets due to how quiet it is (due to most of the inmates utilizing the tablets).

Improved rehabilitation and decreased recidivism means a safer community, and a safer community with less crime can lead to a lower average daily population in jail. Improved inmate-to-officer ratios promotes a safer correctional environment and increased cost savings for the facility.
It is our obligation to make sure they return to our communities better than they came to us. Why are they committing crimes and offenses? They lack education. By lacking education, you can't get into employment. No matter how many programs I have in this jail, I have limited program space. In Edovo, we've been able to find something that will reach a larger amount of people, that has fidelity, and that has resulted in a calmer environment. It's a win-win.
