Securus Technologies is an American based tech company whose main concern is maintaining relationships by providing technology solutions for public safety and connecting families and friends to their loved ones in correctional facilities. Securus is the largest inmate communications provider and is based in Dallas, Texas. It was founded in 1986 and so far has regional offices in Atlanta, Georgia, Carrollton, Texas and Allen, Texas.
Securus serves about 3,400 correction, law enforcement and public safety agencies and over 1.2 million
inmates across North America. It connects inmates to the outside world through their inmate calling and video visitation options. This mode of communication is through smartphones, android and apple, tablets and PCs. In 2006, Securus announced that, in just three years, they had invested over six million US dollars
in patents, technology and acquisitions. They also provide emergency response, public information investigation and biometric analysis, among others, to aid in making our world a better and safer place to be.
Securus, on a weekly basis, provides a new product aimed at helping to enforce the law and to prevent
crimes. Persons from all over the United States who work in the prisons system had a lot of positive feedback with regards to the impact that the services provided by Securus has on their job.
One of the facilities that they have found very helpful is the monitoring of calls. They have obtained information such as usage and selling of drugs in our correctional facilities, threats made and possible access to cell phones inside the facilities, and with this information, many arrests have been made. Staff have been able to conduct
investigations effectively when threats to security in the facilities are captured by the investigative tool.
Users are impressed by what Securus has to offer and how jail security has improved because of it. They are
hopeful that Securus’ vision will continue to assist them in carrying out their duties.
