Securus Technologies is continually working to improve the safety of law enforcement professionals and inmates across the country and people are taking notice. Rick Smith, CEO of Securus recently stated that the company has received thousands of letters about the impact all of the technology has on inmates, families, and Corrupt staff members have been arrested for bringing contraband into a facility, call monitoring has increased awareness of contraband already in the hands of inmates, and the tools provided by Securus Technologies has reduced the availability if contraband as was noted by several different letter writers. I think this can only improve the safety of everyone involved.
Mr. Smith also commented on the development of new technologies which occurs at a rate of approximately one a week. And again, the letter writers have taken notice. Based on the comments I have read, customers are clearly impressed with not the quality and range of services and technologies provided by Securus Technologies. Many people were impressed with the reporting data and investigation tools, stating that these products allow staff members to investigate potential security problems and any reports of harassment. In one particular case, the LBS software allowed a sheriff’s department to recover millions in illegal assets. It is clear to me from these first hand accounts that Securus Technologies is providing valuable products to their customers.
