That’s odd! Debit links was how they used to pay for tablet content but they did away with that long before the tablets were removed. I think it was February. They changed it so that inmates had to use trust fund to pay for it. Not sure why they would be bringing it back?

Happy New Year Everyone

My husband asked me about debit links , he said someones girlfriend had been able to purchase them. However, I can't find anything about debit links on the GTL website.

He is still adamant that the tablets will be back this month (January) I really hope he is right.

From what I was told, the new director (Dean Williams) will have to determine whether or not to bring the tablets back. He does not start until mid-January. DOC is such a mess I'm sure cleaning house will be his first priority.

Well lets hope he does bring them back. They made such a difference. Who knows what will happen.

Thought the new director was called Rick Raemisch? Think Dean Williams is Alaska DOC

The corrections officer union in Alaska was against him. He investigated corruption in that department. I'm hoping he will do the same in Colorado. He's walking into a mess. I anticipate several top DOC employees will be leaving (hopefully). It does not appear that Alaska inmates had tablets.

Dean is amazing and doesn't put up with CO' or anyone working for CDOC Corruption. He believes in rehabilitation of inmates and family and contact to the outside is very important. He is also for volunteers coming to prisons and jails to help inmates.

I've heard nothing but good about him so far. Thank God! I did get confirmation that his first day is 1/9.

This is the response I received today from DOC (on update of tablets):

Concerning the tablets, DOC is currently reviewing options for future deployment of tablets and at this time no decision has been made.

I attended the Colorado CURE meeting on Wednesday January 16th. One of the members indicated that his son is at Territorial and that he called him from his new tablet.??? I asked if he was sure because I had talk to a rep from DOC on Monday who said the tablets were not back. The man indicated he was sure so someone from CURE was going to check into it. I contacted Mike Romero (CTCF Warden) who advised that offenders at territorial DO NOT have tablets. One of the members of CURE also followed up with DOC (please see email below). DOC and GTL apparently still have a contract in place for tablets. Also, there is discussions going on that indicates tablets will only be issued to offenders at medium custody level facilities and below.

Personally, I don't see tablets coming back until summertime at the very earliest. Hope this information helps!

By mistake, a parent misheard and thought that the offender tablets were being re-issued. In response, we asked CDoC for an update as the website does not have current info (only the FAQ from 2017). The offender tablet link will probably be removed until the program moves forward.



Here’s the response.



Good afternoon,



A possible replacement tablet will be evaluated by staff next month. At this time, there is no update on when tablets might be brought back.
