Securus Technologies provides communications services to correctional institutions, law enforcement, and safety organizations. Over 1.2 million inmates are served as well as 3,400 total organizations.
It turns out that communication between inmates and their families is very important. Studies over the past 40 years or so have pointed out that people who are incarcerated and who have a steady communication with those outside of prison do far better when they are released. If an inmate has a good relationship with family or friends on the outside they are much better able to adapt to society when they are released.
Securus has established enterprise communication systems such as advance pay, regular monthly pay, collect calls, and inmate pay plans. Plans can be interchangeable at any time to another plan if it is more convenient. Email is also available as is voicemail. There is also a money transfer capability that is very useful for the transfer of money to an individual inmate.
It is difficult for many of us to understand what a person goes through when they are incarcerated. While it is true that they have done something that they should not have done to get into the prison facility to begin with, the story does not have to stop there. It can have a positive ending when the time comes for the individual to be released from prison. Just knowing that there are people on the outside who care and want them to succeed is the solution to many questions that inmates have.
Securus Technologies is also very active with the establishment of communications for community law enforcement and safety organizations so a common system is available to all in case of emergencies. It is very important for these entities to be on the same page so effective reaction time and problem-solving will always be on the cutting edge.
