Securus Technologies is making waves as the global leader in mobile cell phone security technology and phone calling services for correctional institutions across North America. The company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and also has several hubs throughout the United States, including a major regional office in Atlanta, Georgia. The company employs over 500 people and is known not only for their security technology but for being a consistent innovator in the space.
In fact, Securus’ CEO says that not a week goes by that their company doesn’t innovate a new technology, platform or a new innovation to existing technology. That is an incredible feat in such a constantly evolving space of technology and security.
Among their portfolio of services, Securus Technologies offers phone calling service to over 1.2 million inmates and their loved ones. They offer their phone services at a modest rate. Inmates’ loved ones can even pre-pay an account online and fully manage their phone calling services from the website. This service is incredibly useful to inmates, as with access to phone services they can keep in touch with friends and family while they are either in prison, in a correctional institute or simply being detained. These services are offered by Securus Technologies throughout the US, Canada and Mexico at hundreds of institutions.
Securus Technologies is not just an innovator, but is a company that is incredibly valued by its clients. A recent article on PR Newswire featured an array of testimonials from real clients. One testimonial showed how using Securus’ technology helped them find a corrupt employee who was later arrested. Another testimonial spoke to recorded calls that led to corrections’ employees learning that an inmate was coaching his brother to lie on the stand. This evidence was collected and was eventually given to the prosecutor to use as evidence in the case.
