Securus Technologies is a top provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for investigation, public safety, monitoring, and corrections. Recently the company published a number of customer comments which talked about the use of technology to curb crimes in the society which also included inmate-on-inmate crimes.
Richard “Rick” Smith, Chairman and Chief of Securus Technologies, stated that once a week the company averagely develops a new service or product to help correctional officials and law enforcement to solve and curb crimes in the society. He added that the company has received thousands of letters and emails commenting on what Securus does to keep the community safe. Securus works so hard to ensure everyone in the society understand the consequences of crimes and the importance of security.
Many comments were received and just to mention a few. One official wrote thanking Securus for the assistance they helped in their investigation in that they used the information they obtained from the phone calls to know about a corrupt staff member who was then arrested. Another message was another official who monitored calls containing information regarding inmate alcohol use, drugs and drug selling in prison. Moreover, the conversation included threats and a civilian admitting to selling prescription drugs at a discount, thanks to Securus this information helped in their investigation.
I think investigations have been made easier for facilities as they can get intense information from Securus. Also, another message was from a client who was appreciating Securus for the development and role in investigations which has improved jail security posture which I agree. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas Securus Technologies Company is deployed in over 3,450 public safety institutions, correction agencies and law enforcement serving a total of 1,200,000 inmates. Making the world a better place is one of the primary reasons Securus was created through providing justice technology solutions.
