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.
