Recently, Richard “Rick” Smith has said that the company regularly receives thousands of emails telling them of how good their services and products are and most importantly, how their innovations have kept inmates, prison staff, and all their families safer.

Securus Technologies treats these emails as a source of motivation to develop more systems for the betterment of prison facilities in North and South America. One of Rick Smith’s ideas on how Securus Technologies can better serve the people is the purchasing of JPay.

JPay is another top company that provides technologies and systems to penitentiaries. They’re currently serving 33 state penitentiaries but their niche is different from Securus Technologies. While Securus’ products focuses mainly on law enforcement and catching prisoners or prison staff committing crimes inside prisons, JPay’s products and services focus more on the human aspect. JPay is the pioneer of providing prisons with electronic payment systems, emails, and providing inmates with tablets for their entertainment and most importantly, their education, through the tablets’ educational apps.

This way, with JPay’s resources and experience, as well as its competitive staff, Securus Technologies can further fulfill their goal of making the world a safer place by improving the environment in penitentiaries because now, they are not limited to the law enforcement part, they can also now improve the correctional aspect where the hope is the inmate will truly turn his or her life around and leave the life of crime for good.

Rick Smith has been the CEO of Securus Technologies and has been chosen to lead the company to greater heights due to his extensive experience and solid educational background that even before he became CEO, almost everybody in the company was already eyeing him to be the one that leads them.

Technology; Solving and Preventing Crimes

Securus Technologies is a civil and criminal justice provider based out of Dallas, Texas serving over 3,450 in public safety and over 1,200,000 inmates in North America.

Their main focus is to solve and prevent crimes using technology. They operate by providing detainee communications to correctional facilities.

In 2016, Securus Technologies received an A+ score and accreditation from the Better Business Bureau. Securus has helped many parolees, inmates, and their families safe which is part of their DNA as stated by Richard Smith, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies. Some examples of this include selected customer comments stating “In addition, the reporting data has enhanced our agency’s proactive measures in monitoring and deterring the incidence of contraband in our facilities.” From some, they are considered the leading jail phone provider due to their excellence in providing information about “behind the scenes”. In return, this helps protect the inmates and the workers present. Not only does Securus offer help to the facilities, but they also provide tablets known as the Securus View Tablet allowing inmates to make calls, listen to entertainment, find jobs and more. In one instance, it allowed two siblings to communicate to their mother at the same time. With this type of technology, parolees can actually listen in on the conversations for those who need help.
