Securus is a technology company that is based in Dallas, Texas and provides inmates in prisons and other correctional facilities across the country with telephone service. They boast an A+ accreditation from the BBB. Inmates need to have access to an internet connection and a smart phone to benefit from this service. The company started in 1986 and now provides telephone service in over 3,400 U.S. correctional facilities and supplies other technologies for public safety, investigation, monitoring, and more to aid law enforcement.
I first read about this company and its services on PR Newswire’s website a while back and its obvious compassion and valuing of the quality of life of U.S. inmates caught my attention. The telephone service provided helps families stay connected by making regular calls, including video calling, more accessible and enabling inmates to have greater involvement in the lives of friends and family.
Securus Technologies, Inc prides itself on a high sense of integrity and ethical business dealings. It makes sure that all communication data is secure, phone records are not shared, and contracts with the correctional facilities are not breached. It also tries to do its part in monitoring other communication companies, like Global Tel Links (GTL). GTL was in the news recently for questionable managing of communication data and contracts as well as call rate and billing disputes. These rate inconsistencies and wrongdoings were first investigated by the Louisiana Public Service Commission(PSC)in January 1998. Today, GTL’s actions continue to warrant ongoing investigation. Securus Technologies, Inc will review the actions being investigated
Since these bills are coming out of my tax dollars as well as yours, Securus America Technologies, Inc continues to investigate. This is just another way that the company proves that it values inmates, society, and the country as a whole. It holds all communication companies, including itself, to very high standards.
