Securus Technologies: A Company You May Not Know, But You Should

You probably haven’t heard of a company called Securus Technologies. I hadn’t until a few weeks ago. They keep a pretty low profile due to the nature of their work, but in their industry, technology and security, they are the big dogs. They are the go-to for, well, really a massive variety of technology services that focus on security. And not just one security sector, from government information management to parolee tracking to in-facility services for correctional institutions, I am in awe at how many different organizations and sectors their services are utilized by.

 

Securus Technologies calls Dallas, Texas home, but has a variety of offices across North America to serve the 2,600 correctional facilities the company works with – and a total of over 3,000 institutions including law enforcement bodies and government entities. Securus also has served over 1 million inmates that use their services for access to phone calls. However, the security aspect is also protecting us when inmates make those phone calls. Phone calls are monitored and often result in the finding of information that helps law enforcement detect and stop criminal activity or wrongdoing before it even occurs thanks to the recordings of those calls.

 

I sourced a few examples of how their technology has been concretely applied in relation to the correctional system. These examples all came from actual clients of Securus Technologies:

  1. By utilizing their phone monitoring software, officials were able to obtain a search warrant that helped them arrest a corrupt employee.
  2. A monitored phone call revealed an inmate was coaching his brother to lie about his alibi on the stand and the information was used as evidence in his trial.
  3. Monitored calls revealed illegal activity inside a prison, including selling of drugs and alcohol.

It is from the power of innovation that Securus Technologies continues to be recognized as a leader in this field.

The accreditation is one of the many that it has managed to clinch over the years giving it a high rating in the field. However, these accreditations are well in line with the rising standards or industry requirements. In addition, they will enhance its performance considering the high standards required in correctional facilities.
