Securus Technologies: Taking Over The Inmate Communications Industry

Securus Technologies is one of the leading prison communications providers in the entire country. The company has managed to stand out in the industry for the excellent quality of services that they provide. Right from video calling to voice calling, the company offers it all. The company works by outside payments, where by friends and family of the people inside these incarceration facilities can send money to accounts of the inmates, which are then used to pay for all the calls that are made. Alternatively, the friends and family can also choose to receive a bill at the end of the month for all the calls that were placed through the course of the month. They can then pay for this bill in the manner that they want, and then be allowed to re-access the phone lines for the next month.

 

Because Securus Technologies is a company that is working with inmates, it becomes crucial to monitor them and make sure that nothing wrong is going on with them. The company has implemented an inmate monitoring system, with which they track all the calls that are being made and also record all the conversations that are going on between the people on the inside and out. This information has been provided to judiciaries that are investigating the inmates involved and who want to go over the conversations as and when they happened. Securus Technologies has played a large role in supporting numerous cases across inmate, which is what the company believes in doing to uphold the security of America.

 

The company underwent a huge change when it carried out a merger in 2008. At that time, Securus Technologies was at the top of the field with T-Netix coming in a close second. The two companies thus decided to merge to form one large corporation and take over the communications industry.
