Project: Videoconferencing system

Agency: West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals


* Polycom Inc., Pleasanton, Calif.

* Verizon Inc., New York


Create a safer, more efficient way for suspects to appear before judges in the mostly rural state.


Polycom supplied a videoconferencing system

that includes an easy-to-use remote control.

Training usually takes less than an hour. T1 lines

were installed in all courtrooms and jails that have the system.




The state saved about $30 million in transportation

costs in the first year of using the system.

Corrections employees don't have to spend hours transporting suspects. Reducing transportation

time is safer for prisoners and corrections
