Securus main service is connecting inmates with their families and friends through telephone calls or video calls. The relatives of an inmate do not need to go to a correctional facility to meet their loved one, and they can just do it from the comfort of their home. Their public safety solutions service facilitates the law enforcement units to gather consolidate and distribute critical information in real-time to the mobile emergency response unit. Securus also offers monitoring solution, a system that track and trace movements of inmates within the society which help keep the public safe.

 

Maintaining close ties with family members is an essential thing in life, but when a member is in jail, it could be difficult. Securus video visitation technology is helping to keep families together during Christmas. For examples, families can communicate face to face with their loved ones who are in jail by using a computer. The inmate can talk to all his family members even those who would not have gotten time to visit him in jail. For an inmate who had children, he can communicate and pass parental love to them every day and assure them that he will join them soon. This will keep children aware that there is someone who cares about them and will join then again soon.

 

The video visitation technology will help families stay united. Inmate and his family can communicate whenever they want unlike in the past where they could only see each other during the visiting days.

 

 

ConnectUs by Securus Technologies Consolidates Multiple Resources

It takes time to file a complaint and grievance form. It’s not going to happen in seconds. The officer has to retrieve the form, fill out his or her necessary segments, return the form to its rightful place, and said form must be stored. Now, a regular inmate produces 13.8 complaint and grievance forms every month. In an institution that only has 200 inmates, that’s over 2,700 pages to go through. It doesn’t matter how well staffed the institution is, that corrective facility has hours of work on its hands. And how much is a man hour worth at a corrective facility?

A little math reveals just how much time is involved in filing regular complaints and grievances forms. If one form takes five minutes, and there are approximately 13.8 per inmate in a 200 inmate facility, then that’s 2,760 complaint and grievances forms a month. If each of those forms only requires five minutes of processing, that’s 230 hours a month, or 2,760 hours a year. Basically, one form in a 200 person facility ends up generating an hour’s work by the end of the year–when the numbers are finally crunched. At only $20 an hour, 2,760 hours becomes $55,200, or enough to buy a cheap little house in a down market.

Securus Technologies is combatting this exceptional yearly loss to thousands of US penitentiaries with ConnectUs, a digital application platform which totally removes the need for any physical complaint/grievance form. Prisoners can now file their forms with the touch of a button and it will be instantly stored for future reference in a clean, secure system. Securus Technologies serves 1.2 million inmates across the US, and over 2000 correctional facilities–as well as 1500 support facilities that aren’t full-time penitentiaries. The potential for savings with full implementation of ConnectUs is 2000+ multiplied by P,000+, or $100,000,000+. Securus is offering game-changing consolidation software through ConnectUs.
