Securus Technologies is one of the largest providers of communications to correctional facilities, safety organizations and law enforcement organizations. They work with over 2,400 prisons and help over 1.2 million inmates connect to their families while they are incarcerated.
With the services that Securus provides, inmates can call their families on the phone, leave voice messages and have access to email. Families also can leave voice or email messages. This process makes it a lot easier for inmates and their families to get by as their loved ones serve their time.
Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Securus is a recognized leader in the provision of specialized communications equipment and processes for corrections facilities and law enforcement agencies. There are several plans that are made available including a collect call feature, inmate billing, where the charges are billed to the inmate, advance pay, where a family member or a benefactor can pay the bill in advance and regular billing which is sent to the family in most cases.
There is also a video conferencing feature where the inmate and the family are linked together with a camera and voice capability on both ends of the conversation. This creates a live, real-time session which is just like being together. This saves the family the time and trouble of having to drive to the correctional facility and then having to wait for a meeting area to clear.
The Securus information and communications systems also make it possible for public safety and law enforcement agencies to collect, consolidate and make available information that supports safety and emergency situations in a real-time environment. This technology alone is critical for the well-being of the safety of all that are involved with the prison systems and the public at large.
Securus Technologies has had a huge impact on the morale and well-being of prisoners and the families of those incarcerated appreciate the commitment and results of the system.
