Prison. Not a subject most people like to talk about, but according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) holds about 222,030 people in the US alone. Although prison inmates are often looked down upon in society, we must remember that they are still people and have family and loved ones at home thinking about them and missing them. The Dallas based company Securus has made an effort to not only connect inmates to their loved ones in a safe and appropriate manner, but also help law enforcement solve crimes and recover contraband.
Securus Technologies creates an open air network to where inmates can talk to their friends and family while also being strictly monitored by law officials. It’s really the best of both worlds because inmates area allowed the freedom to talk to loved ones; however, law officials can regulate what is being talked about and if any information regarding an unlawful act is discussed, it can be dealt with immediately and with proper evidence. Facility customers are raving about this up and coming technology that Securus is providing them with. It has said to be one of the most successful methods of withdrawing important information from inmates that would not be recovered otherwise. There have been times when large amounts of contraband such as drugs, guns and money have been found and stopped in their tracks due to information obtained from Securus’s technology.
Securus Technologies is a fast growing technology company that focuses their time and attention on making this world a safer place. With the vision to create a more transparent environment in the prison system, and the technological advances available to them, Securus is sure to change the world one prison system at a time.
