Securus Technologies is Cleaning Up Jails and Correctional Facilities with Their Services for Keeping Families Connected

In 1986, a company called Securus was introduced to help correctional facilities to allow for better communication between jail houses and family and friends of inmates. The company which offers offices scattered throughout Texas and also offices in Atlanta, Georgia employs over a thousand people and holds contracts for more than 2,500 different correctional facilities.

 

In July of 2016, Securus made an announcement in which it stated over $600 million dollars in patents, technology and acquistions would be made in order to serve more correctional facilities and jail houses. In case you are not familiar with Securus, it was in September of 2004 that T-Netix and Evercom merged companies. The companies were the two main leaders within the corrections market and in June 2007, Securus Technologies purchased the international portion in Offender Management Systems by acquiring Syscon Justice Systems.

 

The company is introducing a system in which it will control the use of contraband cell phones from within the jail house walls. In 2016, Securus had managed to create an access solutions method that led the Department of Corrections to use a cell defender program which helped to prevent signals of cell phones within jail houses to be able to access a signal for calls or data. The wireless containment solution is working to prevent all contraband cell phones from being able to contact a wireless network from inside the corrections facility.

 

If you or a loved one has ever been in jail, you know how difficult it is on family members while their loved ones are in jail. With Securus, the phone service which helps to keep families connected while away, is helping to keep inmates talking while in jail. If the inmate is able to reach family and friends, the inmate is less likely to become a repeat offender when they are finally released. This helps to keep jails emptier and crime rates down once inmates are released from jails and prisons.

 

 

Securus Helps Correctional Facilities Stop Contraband Distribution

Securus Technologies is responsible for inmate communications and administration in over 3,400 facilities that cover a stunning 1.2 million inmates in the United States. They have a reputation as the leading provider of inmate communications, and their technology is credited with keeping inmates and their families and friends connected and in-touch.

 

The services provided by Securus are valued by more than just facility inmates, however. Correctional staff have been sounding off on their experiences with Securus Technologies, and the verdict is that Securus helps prevent crimes and keeps facilities safer for those who live and work within. In many cases, the communication monitoring services have provided key evidence used to stop drugs, cell phones, and other dangerous contraband from moving around a facility. In one notable case, the program alerted management to a corrupt staff member who was facilitating contraband distribution.

 

Securus Technologies has also been credited with providing key evidence to assist with the prosecution of a crime on several occasions. In these cases, in particular, experts have to be concerned with evidence reliability and its ability to withstand significant legal scrutiny. Time and again, Securus has demonstrated the ability to surpass this standard and provide legal experts with the information they need.

 

Securus is proud of the services it provides, and the company has extended an invitation to current and prospective customers and investors to reach out and explore the opportunities a partnership with Securus offers.
