Securus Technologies has been a top provider of technology products to correctional facilities in North America for the past three decades. The business is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and it has divisions in Atlanta, Allen, and Carrollton. It has been operational since 1986 and has grown to serve more than 3450 correctional facilities. Securus currently has over 1000 employees, and its clients are located in Canada and the United States. The company is dedicated to offering excellent connection services, and more than 1.2 million inmates use its products. Securus has developed technologies that are used for investigation, monitoring, corrections, and communication.
The technology solutions provider has currently grown, and it is appreciated as one of the frontrunners in the inmate communication industry. The company merged with Evercom and T-Netix in September 2004 to increase the variety of service that it offers. It then acquired Syscon Justice System in June 2007. The firm was a global brand that was highly trusted for providing outstanding offender management systems.
Securus Technologies was the first company in the sector to develop an efficient system that is used for managing the use of contraband phones in prisons. The company has a Management Access Solution that is currently being used by five facilities that are owned by the department of corrections. Harris Corporation collaborated with Securus Technologies in July 2016 to create the Cell Defender product. At the beginning of 2017, the company launched the Wireless Containment Solution, which is an advanced product that is used in preventing contraband phones in prisons from connecting to the outside world.
Securus Technologies’ CEO announced in July 2016 that the company had invested more than $600 million in making acquisitions, patents, and developing top-notch technologies for the past three years. The products that the firm has invested in are used for offering services such as jail management systems, video visitation, mobile device monitoring, outsourced investigation services, wireless contraband elimination, wireless tracking, data analytics, and improved inmate communications. Over the past five years, Securus has also invested about $100 million in the development of secure calling platforms. The firm successfully connects more than 400 million calls every year.
According to the CEO, the company is committed to being among the leading technology providers in the corrections industry, and that is why it has invested the $700 million. It has made sure that the platforms that it provides to the facilities are highly efficient, secure, and cost-effective. The products of Securus Technologies have been designed to ensure that the inmates can communicate efficiently with their families and friends. Statistics indicate that prisoners who often connect to the outside world are likely to change their behaviors and be released early. The correctional facilities that Securus Technologies serves greatly appreciate its products.
