Securus Technologies is an IT company offering inmate communication solutions. It is based in Texas and serves the wider America and Canada in preserving law and upholding security for Americans and Canadians. It is a very established privately held company that employs close to 2,000 employees who serve a very big segment of the American population. The company provides indispensable services to correctional facilities in both countries. The services rendered revolve around regulating inmate communications with the outside world via media and communication devices. The services are difficult to provide as technology evolves daily, but Securus has always been ahead of the game.
Securus enjoys its firm grip on the prisons communication market because of its repute for innovation and diligence. The company invests heavily in innovation, having spent millions in patents and acquisition almost every year it has been in service. Tax reports indicate that the company has spent more than 600 million dollars in total for the sake of acquiring patents. Also, the company invests its time and human resources in making partnerships with other innovative firms to progress its technologies and thus advance the services it offers prisons and correctional facilities. The partnerships have often been successful, with the most recent one yielding the conception and development of the “Cell Defender.” “Cell Defender,” a product of the partnership between Securus Technologies and Harris Corporation, has become indispensable in barring contraband phones in prisons and holding facilities from connecting with mobile networks.
Such technologies, some of which have been generated on a weekly schedule, keep the chances of the incarcerated community, their imprisoners, and the public from succumbing to the effects of organized crime. Securus Company alone has been able to prevent malicious and unlawful communications between inmates within the same or different prisons. Also, any communications made by the prisoners can now be reviewed in case investigations are needed.
Securus Company has been receiving numerous letters from the general public and especially prison officials. Most of the letters commend the company for its services which have;
- Helped control drug abuse and trafficking within the prisons
- Reduce incidences of corruption
- Minimized coordinated attacks on inmates, prison officials, and their families
