Securus Technologies and Their Innovative Approach to Prison Cell Phone Security

Securus Technologies is a mid sized company based out of Dallas, Texas that has driven an incredibly streamlined and innovative path to offer an increased amount of security and technology in our prison system.

 

The company was founded about a decade ago and since then has made incredible strides in not only ensuring the security of our correctional institutions but in offering inmates access to affordable mobile calling solutions. These mobile calling services are intertwined with their security solutions to offer maximum safety. In layman’s terms, inmates or those being held in a correctional institution are able to make calls affordably for their family or loved ones but the calls are also monitored using Securus’ technology. This means that every person or inmate can access affordable calls, and those that have other agendas that may be illegal or malicious will be recorded.

 

Clients of Securus Technologies chosen to write in their own success stories in using the company’s technology and several of these confirm the incredible use of the technology. This story was featured on PR Newswire and the full article can be found here. The first testimonial came from a correctional institute that was able to utilize Securus Technologies’ platform to trace and monitor phone calls that led to the arrest of an employee who was corrupt. The technology of phone monitoring from a remote location helped them locate the employee and find out exactly what the situation entailed, allowing them to push forward with an arrest.

 

The next story comes from another correctional institute where the facility used Securus Technologies’ platform to monitor a phone call that came from an inmate who was set to be on trial. The inmate was captured on a phone line coercing his brother to lie for him when he took the stand as a witness. Thanks to Securus, the monitored phone call was submitted into evidence to help put the man away.
