Securus Technologies/ Crime Prevention:

*An in depth look at Securus Technologies:

 

Securus Technologies is based out of Dallas Texas. The Securus has been in business for over thirty years. The company provides a variety of communication as well as security services to inmates in over 40 states.

 

Securus services greatly improve public safety. In addition, the high tech services familiarize inmates with the latest and most advanced technology. The company currently serves over 3000 correctional facilities on a national level.

 

The company was involved in a variety of acquisitions that proved quite profitable. Within the past five years, Securus has purchased JLG Technology, J- Pay as well as the Guarded Exchange. It appears that Securus continues to expand their operations as well as increasing their overall client base.

 

One of Securus latest discoveries is a full proof security system that enables correctional facilities to detect as well as control contraband cellular phones within an inmates cell. The “Managed Access Solution” is currently being used by a number of correctional facilities with excellent results. Being able to identify contraband and quickly removing it , makes the facility a much safer and more secure place for other inmates, staff members and visitors.

 

Securus is the leader in “Cell Defender Technology“. In addition to Cell Defender Technology, Securus has also improved Video visitation services, Inmate voice response systems, internal management as well as investigative services for correctional facilities. In addition, GPS tracking of those that have been paroled is now used on a regular basis. GPS tracking of former inmates can provide indisputable proof of a parolee’s location and whereabouts at virtually any time of the day or night.

 

Due to improvements in the security systems that Securus offers permits officers to conduct fast and accurate internal investigations. Internal investigations within a facility permit officers to prove or disprove allegations such as sexual harassment as well as stopping the flow of drugs throughout the facility.

 

Public safety has been greatly improved through the efforts of Securus Technologies. Securus is one of the first companies to introduce “Secure Calling Platforms” to correctional facilities. Not only has Securus made communication within a facility easier, they have also made communication much safer and quite secure.
