Prison Communication

Why are All Prisons Using Securus Technologies?

Sometimes, facilities need a specialized product, a technology made specifically for them, or a system that allows it to perform flawlessly. This is not different for prisons and correction agencies, who manage some of the most dangerous people in the nation. Inmates committed crimes, and often they continue to do so from inside the bars of a cell, which means that there needs to exist a dedicated security system just for prisons.
For many years, there were not many of those dedicated services, or at least they were either not of the highest quality or overpriced. When Securus Technologies was created by Richard A. “Rick” Smith, he was filling a spot that no one else was investing in, and he founded one of the most successful prison technology companies in the world, being approved by more than five Departments of Corrections facilities.
The company has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas, and they act on prisons in the United States and in many important metropolitan centers in Canada where there are prisons that would benefit from the dedicated service.
Securus Technologies, as the name suggests, has the primary focus of finding solutions that increase the security of a correction agency, but the team is also focused on developing communication solutions that use modern technology to keep improving their services.
For example, Securus Technologies found a solution for prisons who were having problems with the contraband of cell phones inside their territory, where inmates were using the mobile communication to talk to their smuggling partners outside of jail, furthering their crime activity. Securus developed a system to control that contraband, and more than 2,000 prisons and agencies have already hired the services of Securus to help maintain monitoring of the jail.
Not everything is one-sided though, as Securus Technologies also thinks on the inmates when developing their technology. Their telephone service is one of the best in the market and allows inmates to communicate with their families and friends with a clean and audible communication, much better than the standards of a prison.
