For years Securus Technologies as worked to provide correctional facilities and the law enforcement professionals that work there the tools needed to communicate effectively and police their respective inmate populations. This is a daunting task that requires a team dedicated to remaining abreast of technological changes and applying them as needed to a market that is always in need of the best solutions available. Securus works towards meeting this goal and that results in quite a bit of feedback.
Securus Technologies has made public just a small portion of the continuous stream of letters, phone calls, and emails that come to their offices everyday from clients working across the country. The reactions skew positive for a company that is expected to cover quite a few areas in an industry that is responsible for protecting the safety of the general public.
From the collection, one correctional facility head cited Securus as being instrumental in keeping up with technological developments n communications, which has allowed for constant communication with other local authorities, providing greater public security during emergency situations. At other times, the capabilities provided by Securus’s technology has allowed officials to identify corrupt members of their staff, track contraband moving within their facilities, and even collect information on ongoing cases of a violent nature.
The assistance Securus provides on a daily basis is at the core of the company’s mission, according to CEO and Chairman Richard A. Smith. On average of once per week, Securus is making a new product or service available to the correctional field, and that requires a commitment to understanding technology and assuming responsibility for their part in maintaining the civil population secure.
