The crime prevention and correctional sector are overcrowded, and many companies are trying to level it out with each other to emerge as the leader. However, one of the companies that have showcased its commitment to the crime prevention as well as a correctional industry from the time it started its operations in 1986 is Securus Technologies. The company has made its way to the top in the industry in a very short period due to the amount of contribution it has made to the said sector.
The lives of inmates have changed drastically through the products and services offered by Securus Technologies. It makes it easier for the inmates to connect with their loved ones back home, and that too without spending a fortune. Previously, services like talking over the phone were much expensive for the inmates, but Securus Technologies has helped in considerably decreasing the prices. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Rick Smith, says that the company is focused on bringing the costs of inmate communications services down even further in the future.
He has also invited the customers and investors in the company, existing and potential, to visit the highly advanced and futuristic Technology Center of Securus Technologies in Dallas, Texas. Rick Smith believes that the people should know the contributions being made by the company to the sector and how well its innovation and research and development activities are going. It would help in building a better image of the enterprise and ensuring that the products and services of the company are used by more people and correctional agencies.
As of now, more than 2,400 correctional agencies rely on Securus Technologies for its products and services. More than 1.2 million prisoners in various penal institutions across the United States, Canada, and the District of Columbia, uses the inmate communications services offered by Securus Technologies.
