Securus Technologies Make Places Safer for Police

I believe that we all should have great respect for companies who become social entrepreneurs. It is this mindset, that business can make good profit by ending evil in this world, that empowers companies to make good changes on this Earth.

 

While I was researching Securus Technologies, I found out that they would be considered social entrepreneurs in the realm of criminal technologies.

 

Having been founded in 1986, they have since grown to be the world’s leading provider in civil justice technology and criminal justice technology. They also create solutions for public safety. On top of this, they create technologies that allow the police force to investigate, correct, and monitor crimes among inmates.

 

Over time, they have expanded into several different areas. They began in Dallas Texas, and now they have Regional Offices in Atlanta, Georgia, Carrollton, Texas, and Allen, Texas.

 

The top priority of Securus Technologies is to decrease crime that occurs between two different inmates within a correctional facility. In order to accomplish that, they created a system that monitors the cell phones the inmates have. This technology has allowed Securus Technologies to monitor the movements of inmates and gain a deeper understanding into their motives.

 

Over 2000 correctional facilities in North America have reported that using Securus Technologies has drastically reduced the injuries that occur inside their systems. The same police officers have reported feeling safer, and more control, and better equipped to handle situations in the correctional facility.

 

I am happy to report that Securus Technologies does whatever it can to continue pushing the envelope. They have invested over 600 million dollars to produce new technologies on a weekly basis.

 

When I see advancements like this, I know in my heart that, while evil cannot be completely extinguished, it can be lessened to a great degree.

 

Securus Puts Customer Feedback on Display, Details its Role in Crime Prevention

Securus Technologies has long been known as a company proud to provide technology and services to correctional facilities and law enforcement agencies across North America. This has also contributed to an understanding of what’s needed in order to minimize the proliferation of crime and keep correctional facilities safe for both inmates and staff.

 

Proud of what they know and the recognition earned for applying that experience, Securus has published a collection of feedback from customers across states and agencies that show a working relationship based on reliability and innovation. These consist of letters, electronic correspondence and the traditional paper kind, that show how Securus’s tech solutions have made stressful jobs and potentially dangerous work environments a little easier to navigate and maintain for the sake of public safety.

 

Securus’s Chairman and CEO, Richard A. Smith, said that feedback from clients is essential to the company’s business model. With such comments, Securus can better analyze just how they are conducting business and whether or not they have the confidence and support of this niche industry. Nearly every week Securus releases some new technology or service to be used by law enforcement. How they are released, how they interface with users, and nearly all the minutia of software development and continued service relies upon the flow of communication between Securus and their customers, Smith remarked.

 

The feedback comes to Securus by the thousands, and Smith has found that much of this feedback reassures him of the company’s role in maintaining public safety by helping law enforcement and corrections officials do their jobs. The level of praise the company continually receives has set a tone internally and has helped to define how they conduct business, and that adaptability is part of the reason Smith sees Securus as part of law enforcement and corrections for years to come.

 

Publishing this feedback to the public comes with a reminder from Securus Technologies that they have a standing open invitation to clients of their competitors and potential investors to walk into their campus in Dallas, Texas to see just how they conduct business and continue to be the premiere provider of technological solutions to law enforcement and correctional facilities.
