A Quick Look into Securus Technologies Enormous Strides
Since its establishment in 1986, Securus Technologies, a Dallas-based prison technology company has grown to serve over 2,200 correctional facilities in America. The company has close to 1,000 employees and serves more than 1,000,000 inmates nationwide where it provides services such as parolee tracking, inmates’ communications that include video services as well as government information. Apart from its Dallas Headquarter office, it has regional offices in Allen, Carrolton as well as Atlanta Georgia.
As the leading provider of correction and monitoring technologies, Securus has acquired other companies such as Guarded Exchange, Satellite Tracking of People, DirectHit Systems, Cellbox among other five companies. Its landslide expansion into vertical markets such as Wireless Forensic Services came from its massive investment of $ 605 million in July 2016 to help its customers. The diversification concerning technologies, patents, and acquisitions has ensured that the company not only deals with inmate telephone services, but it also includes more packages. Concerted efforts of the jail customs, inmates as well as family and friends of the company regarding their inputs what have seen the company grow to its current leading status.
I am impressed by the customer feedback given to the company which is a clear indication of its impacts in safety of prisoners, their families as well as parolees. Some clients are relying upon services offered by Securus for over a decade now. Their LBS software together with other law enforcement resources has helped in the retrieval of drugs, prohibited assets as well as cash which seemed impossible on previous occasions. Further, some are grateful for its effective monitoring of information which has enabled the arrest of corrupt staff members who introduce contraband cell phones to offices. Securus’ strong vision and adaptability with powerful technology will continue to impact positively on investigative need as well improve jail security each day.
