Despite detractors Securus Technologies’ proves its tech can prevent crime

Every industry has bitter rivalries. But few have rivalries more pronounced than that which exists between the prison communication industy’s giants, Securus Technologies and Global Tel Link. For years, the companies have traded jabs back and forth. These have included filing lawsuits and making derogatory claims in the press against each other.


Securus has sustained the vast majority of these assaults. But even despite all of the negative things that its chief competitor at said against it, Securus continues to prove its technologies by implementing them in over 3,500 penal institutions across the United States. One of its most successful technologies has been its video visitation suite. This is proving to be a major hit with both inmates and guards alike, allowing for cheap video visitation calls to and from prisons, saving inmates and their families thousands of dollars per year.


But this technology has also been extremely popular with guards due to its ability to reduce the number of visitations that inmates schedule each year as well as being able to give inmates a sense of hope and a strong incentive to say on their best behavior. Since the implementation of the system in prisons throughout the United States, it has been shown that prisons where the system has been installed have seen dramatic reductions in inmate violations of prison rules as well as a reduction in criminal activity overall. This not only makes guards jobs easier, it also makes the prison environment safer for both staff and inmates. Securus video visitation is not just a mere convenience, it saves lives.


This is just one example of many technologies that Securus is developing in its fight against crime within prisons throughout the United States. It is a company with a proven track record of developing some of the most innovative and effective solutions for prison staff seeking to keep their institutions safe and secure.


The Communications Provider for Correctional Facilities, Securus Technologies

Securus is the American profit-oriented company that is providing services to the prisoners, and they are situated in Carrollton, Allen, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia. They have managed to employ almost 1,000 people with contracts in over 2,600 prisons in the United States. Among the facilities, there are permanent clients approximately 2,200 that extend up to Canada. They have in the last one year added 600 million dollars that were going to add their potential in technology, purchases, and copyrights for the next three years.


Securus Technologies was formed by two mother companies that came together in June of 2007. They then got the international brand leader in Offender Management Systems. In the prisons, they can track illegal and contraband mobile phones that have been smuggled into the facilities. Last year, the Securus Managed Access Solutions was given the go ahead by the states’ Department of Corrections facilities to offer their services. They have aligned with Harris Corporation on the technology known as Cell Defender and lately (2017), they will have a Wireless Containment Solution that will be mostly beneficial in preventing fake phones from getting services within the facilities.


They are responsible for parolee tracking services when they are freed from prisons, and they provide the government with information about where the parolees have been. When we combine the three countries that they serve, Mexico, Canada and USA, they give services to over three million inmates. Securus are proud to be the leading company incomplete, state-of-the-art technology services that respond fast to the clients and are in good terms with the state and federal governments.


As they execute their services in the three countries, they are reviewed and praised by the clients. The CEO Richard Smith says that they have a lot of feedback from their users regarding the services that they give. The emails and letters are so many, but they mostly talk about how their services are affecting the society positively and giving hope to the families of the inmates. The prisoners, parolees and their relatives say they are safe and secure in their whereabouts.


Selected comments that the company has received over time are about how their communications have helped in settling some cases. The phone calls in some cases have been tapped and used as evidence to arrest criminals.


Clients talk about how the partnership with LBS software and Investigator Pro has made assets that are worth millions, got illegal drugs and cash. With the technology, facility owners would not have got the contraband. Inmates who are plotting to tell lies can be intercepted as they say the one to testify how they are supposed to talk.


Many users talk about how the company is increasing its capability in technology solutions, their futuristic vision that will raise the jail security and how reporting data has given measures that monitor contraband in the prison facilities.
