The company was founded in 1986 to provide services in the fields of parolee tracking, information, and communication sharing about detainees as well as government communications. Securus has been an established leader in the provision of prisoner communication and tracking, running its services across 45 states in the United States and covering up to 2,600 correctional and rehabilitation facilities. An estimated 1 Million inmates have been beneficiaries of the services offered by the Securus Technologies.
The Securus Technologies is a non-profit making venture that specializes in prison technology. It is based in the state of Texas, in Dallas. The other regional offices run by the firm are located in Carrollton in Texas, Allen, and Atlanta in the state of Georgia. The services offered have reached more than 2,200 to 2,600 correctional facilities in the United States and Canada since its inception as a communications and parolee tracking technology firm. By the year 2016, the company had made an investment of up to $600 Million in patents, other amalgamations, and technologies.
Products offered by Securus Technologies
The Securus Technologies offers another range of services apart from communications and information sharing. In 2016, it introduced new technologies to track down contraband phone accessories, especially those run inside the correctional facilities. The innovation saw a boost in 2017 after collaborating with Harrington Solutions to develop the Wireless Containment Solutions, which intercepted calls made from contraband phones
A client has reached the company and offered appreciations for the services provided in one instance where we had to use the information provided by Securus on the phones in use to hunt down a staff member. The officer in question made use of contraband phones to reach out to a colleague and made unreasonable requests. Some other case that has been overly successful is the tracking down of alcohol usage, drugs and use of threats in the correctional facilities. It has been managed by the information we share. Much has been brought to the light concerning the underhand dealings of the inmates in the correctional facilities as well as those from the outside colluding with inmates.
