Securus Technologies has been providing correctional facilities, law enforcement and public safety agencies with many helpful technology solutions for over thirty years. The company is now in the midst of creating new products and services to help improve the incarceration environment tenfold. I looked into some of Securus Technologies latest services and most will be beneficial for the inmates and how they could easily connect to their loved ones.
The future for building a positive experience for those incarcerated include: lowering the pricing for inmates, additional video calls, increase the usage of inmate’s products, a 24/7 communication opportunities and smart device penetration at a hundred percent to name a few. Securus Technologies says that in the future, inmates will be able to use their device to access videos, text messages, receive virtual funding, emails, further their education online and search for job opportunities. The devices and products used in these facilities are closely monitored with advanced security features to prevent possible crimes and threats. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, believes that they are relatively close to implementing all of these things. The company has served over 3,450 law enforcement and correctional agencies from all around North America and provided communication services to over 1,200,000 inmates.
