NATCHEZ, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Inmates in the Adams County jail will soon be able to get a glimpse of home during the day.

Adams County Jail Administrator Capt. Ed Tucker said within the next 60 to 90 days in-person visitation at the jail will be replaced with a web-based service operated by Homwav. The county supervisors approved the contract for the video service earlier this week.

Tucker said the equipment will be installed in the jail free of charge, and the video conferencing terminals will be fee-based, similar to inmate phone services.

The change is being made to accommodate space needs for the jail, and to expand inmate visitation privileges, which are currently limited to immediate family for 30 minutes on Sundays.
