Based in Dallas, TX, Securus Technologies is a company that offers various telecommunication and Information Technology solutions for the criminal justice industry. This company serves more than 3,000 clients in law enforcement throughout the United States of America. Additionally, over a million inmates have also benefited from the communication services by Securus Technologies. Securus Technologies specializes in phone and Internet connections that are optimized specifically for prisons and jails.
After conducting a survey among correctional institutions nationwide, Securus Technologies has found out that more than half of participants wanted to upgrade their IT infrastructure. For 2016, the goal of such facilities is to significantly improve their logistical efficiency and satisfy the inmates. Approximately 15 percent of the surveyed facilities also expressed their plans to reduce operational costs. The CEO of Securus Technologies understands that correctional institutions often operate on tight budgets that must be managed precisely in order to avoid wasteful spending. He also enthusiastically mentioned that such clients can set up automated communication service that is affordable in the long term.
About two thirds of surveyed correctional facilities acknowledged the success of video visitation that is offered through Securus Technologies. In a virtual visitation, family and friends can communicate live with their loved ones who are locked behind bars. About a third of the correctional institutions also have a strong preference for giving tablets for inmates to use in order to communicate remotely with virtual visitors. Securus Technologies delivers high-quality audio and video in the virtual visitations. Such a service saves visitors precious time, money and other inconvenient hassles that are associated with going through security checkpoints at prisons or jails. It is also more personal than traditional inmate phone calls which means incarcerated members can feel closer to their families in times of celebration, mourning, and for mile markers in life as well.
With a 1.5-million dollar investment in a contemporary technology center, Securus Technologies is ready to come up with innovative IT solutions for all of its clients in North America. Situated in Carrollton, this modern center essentially serves as a research and development venue for the company. There is nearly 10,500 square feet of floor space that is designated specifically to store the latest innovative technology designed for law enforcement. Clients from the criminal justice are invited to explore the large selection of hardware and software offered at the new technology facility that’s operated by Securus Technologies. This company even offers video conferences for clients who are interested in buying certain products or services but cannot visit the actual facility due to budget restraints and other restrictions.
