Founded in 1986 and its headquarters based in Dallas Texas, Securus Technologies has been in operation for more than 30 years now. This is a company that provides civil and criminal justices with high technology solution. A platform that enhances safety to the public and to the prisoners, it makes life in prison better. This is by enhancing biometric analysis and improving communication.
Today, thousands of correction facilities in America have adopted the company’s technology solutions as it is easy to use and always accessible. For the families of the prisoners, it has helped them to keep in touch with their loved ones away from home. This has been done possible by:
- Phone services
- Video calling
For you to stay in touch with your detained loved ones, Securus has introduced phone service to our prison facilities. With several payment product options, you can choose the one that fits your need and keeps you in touch with your loved ones. These payment products include: Inmate debit, Advance Connect, Direct bill and Traditional collect.
This is a convenient way of communicating with your incarcerated ones by opting to schedule a visit without travelling to the facility. Visits are supposed to be scheduled in advance with the prison’s visitation hours policies. Anywhere visit allows you to visit your loved ones online using a web camera in your computer. Remember to open a securus online account for you to enjoy this product.
For the dispatchers and companies that offer emergency services, Securus has come in hand as it connects them to those that are in need of their services.
Recently, securus has launched the use of Drone Detection technology in correction facilities. This is after the discovery of drones being used in delivering phones, drugs and even weapons to the detainees. This can be dangerous not only to the detainees but also to the prison warders
The technology is able to detect and stop drones from reaching the correctional facilities as it uses digital antennae structure. Though the product is in its trial phase, it can only get better in enhancing security and keeping our prisons safe
In 2017, Securus customer care won six awards that includes sales and service award. These awards clearly show Securus’ world class customer service and the expertise shown by its customer care service team
Today Securus has invested more than half a billion in coming up with the world’s best technology to secure our correctional facilities. This has lead to over 1.7 million illegal communication attempts being detected and blocked in eight US prisons. With recent research showing an increase in crimes organized in prisons using illegal cell phones, we can only hope that it’s just a matter of time before Securus technology arrests the whole situation.
