The fight against crime does not end with incarceration; inmates have to be governed not only for their correction but also to prevent crime in correctional facilities. This is what Securus Technologies does best, and its clients have been expressing gratitude for all the benefits it offers.
In this article I will give you an insight into what Securus Technologies is all about and why it is so beneficial to our prisons and the society at large.
Securus Technologies – A Brief Review
Securus Technologies provides services in parolee tracking, detainee communications, and government information management solutions. It currently serves about 2,600 correctional facilities across 45 states in addition to Canada, Mexico, and the District of Columbia. It also has a vast database with information on more than 1,000,000 inmates across the U.S.A.
The company has recently been achieving major milestones in its service provision. To start with, it recently acquired Jpay Inc., a company that provides payment, communication, entertainment, and educational services to correctional facilities. The firm also received accreditation and A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
As a just society, we imprison criminals to not only get them off the streets but also corect them with the hope of reintegrating them back into society. The emergence of Securus Technologies has been of great help toward this end, and our correctional facilities are already enjoying its benefits.
To start with, the technology has been efective in preventing the introduction of contraband in our facilities and, in effect, rooting out corruption among staff members. Additionally, the technology has played an important role in correcting inmates thanks to its entertainment and educational services. The inmates have also benefited socially and personally as the technology’s communication services have connected them to the society and their loved ones.
As a society, on the other hand, the technology has been helpful in monitoring parolees to ensure that they do not recede. What’s more, the benefits achieved in our correctional facilities have trickled down to the society.
These are just some of the benefits of working with Securus Technologies, and we continue to observe more as the company improves its service provision.
