Securus Technologies is a for-profit prison technology company that is in several areas such as Dallas, Carrolton, Allen Texas and Atlanta Georgia. The home base of Securus Technologies is in Dallas Texas. The company had begun in 1986 that has over 1,000 employees that have contracts and serve over 4,000 correctional facilities. Securus is opening the door for correctional facilities for inmates to have more of an intimate conversation with family members. I think Securus is leading the way with new innovative technology for family and friends to connect with their loved ones in correctional facilities. At the same time, they are looking for ways to stop crime within the correctional facility. Securus is thinking abroad about staying in touch. Inmates are sometimes distanced from the outside world, so it is good to know that Securus just wants to bring them one step closer to home. Securus is giving inmates the options to visit loved ones or stopping crime from anywhere using smartphones, tablets, and PCS.
Rick Smith, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer has said in an article from PR Newswire, “Once a week on average, we develop new products or service that helps law enforcement and corrections officials to solve and prevent crimes.” The fact that Securus is taking it to another level by stopping crime, makes me believe that Securus wants civilians to be safe in the world. Securus is literally on another level of communication. Customers have even raved about their experience with Securus in an article on PR Newswire. One customer has stated that with the information from a phone call they were able to do a search warrant on the corrupt staff member. Securus is helping facilities lock down on crime and they are doing in the easiest way, by listening to a phone call. Another customer was monitoring phone calls about an inmate with alcohol use and selling drugs within the facility. Securus has done it again by stopping the crime that was being committed in the correctional facility. Securus is always one step ahead and is doing a marvelous job. Securus stands for security for the inmates and the public.
