Securus Technologies is the provider of communications services for correctional institutions, law enforcement agencies, and safety organizations all across North America. They currently provide services to over 3,400 clients and 1.2 million inmates and their families.
Securus provides a secure and painless way for inmates and their families to stay in touch on a daily basis, if necessary. There are several plans available such as prepaid calling, inmate debit, where the inmate pays the bill, direct billing to the family and collect calling. There is also video calling where the parties can see each other during the call and Jail voicemail.
A recent addition to the services that Securus provides is their phone call monitoring software. This allows law enforcement and prison systems to prevent crimes from occurring and means of solving crimes that have been committed. If criminals use the communications systems for criminal purposes, there will be a record of the conversations that can be used as evidence against them.
For example, one correctional facility was able to accumulate enough evidence from various phone calls to obtain a search warrant that pertained to a possible crime.
Many correctional institutions are using the service to detect criminal activity that is taking place or is being planned to take place. Illegal activities such as selling and using drugs and alcohol within the confines of the prisons is being thwarted and stopped. Having the monitoring software available is making the facilities much safer and more secure.
Securus Technologies is reaching out to correctional facilities and other law enforcement agencies, along with loyal customers and investors to come to their Dallas, Texas headquarters for a demonstration of these services at their Technology Center. A private presentation of the emergency response system, public information, information inmate, inmate self-service and the various monitoring services is available upon request.
