When someone you know is forced to serve a sentence inside of a holding facility, you want to know that they are safe from harm as well as future crimes while serving their time. The problem however is that more jails are seeing an increase in the amount of crimes taking place inside of the jails.
The crimes inside of jails which are occurring year after year, month after month include the rise of drugs and alcohol inside of jails. More inmates are given access to contraband inside of jails either by visitors or through staff members who work inside of the jails. By teaching the jails to find new ways to cut back on the amount of drugs and other contraband, inmates are forced to release information about the people who they are receiving the items from.
By listening to phone calls, obtaining warrants and interviews, more people are being sought in the crimes that are taking place. When the information is obtained and when the inmates are caught, charges are placed and more time is added to the inmates time.
Securus Technologies is always coming up with what else can be done to put a stop to inmate crimes and staff crimes. Each week the business meets to create a new plan or new product that can be incorporated into the jail facilities to reduce inmate to inmate crime as well as crimes being committed by staff members.
Located in Dallas, Texas, the headquarters of Securus Technologies has been creating new ways to fight crimes inside jails for over a decade. By creating new methods and products, crimes inside of jails has lessened. The number of people prosecuted each year has increased for their part in the crimes being committed in jails. Securus Technologies is working to create a better place for people to live in by finding new ways to fight crime.
While the telecommunications industry is a very competitive one, some smaller companies in recent years have found a way to grab a piece of the market share by entering into niche markets and providing a unique service. One of these companies is Securus Technologies, which has been a leading provider of communication and security products and services to the law enforcement industry for the past decade.
While the company started out as a small player in the space, they have continued to grow by providing clients with innovative products and top-level service. One of the most innovative products to hit the industry in the past few years has been their video visitation service. This has provided inmates with a way to connect with family like never before. It has also reduced the need for in-person visitation, which has been a huge burden on facilities in the past.
While the company is best known for its communications solution, it is also gaining a reputation for providing great security services as well. Along with selling the video platform, Securus can also provide a monitoring service to clients. This service allows for Securus to monitor either all conversations made, or focus on only a few key inmates. If the company notices something that seems suspicious, they are able to forward the information on to the facility. Facilities have already reported that this information and the recordings have been used to solve and prevent crimes.
Due to the popularity of their products and services, Securus Technologies has continued to grow. While they were formed just over a decade ago, Securus Technologies now has over 500 employees and provides services to more than 1,000 law enforcement facilities. These facilities ultimately are responsible for the management and oversight of more than 1 million inmates across the country.
