Technology needs to be innovated and upgraded at frequent intervals to ensure it blends well with the contemporary demands and times. Same is the case in the world of prison technology and inmate communications. However, one of the companies that have been single-handedly revolutionizing the field of inmate communications and crime prevention technology is Securus Technologies. The company was established in the year 1986, and since then has grown to become one of the pioneers in the field, and has a broad spectrum of products and services on offer to the correctional agencies.
Securus Technologies believes that developing new technologies and improving and upgrading the existing technologies is the only way to stay ahead of the competition. And, it is for this reason the company announced recently that it had spent over $600 million in research and development as well as a patent acquisition in the last few years. It goes on to showcase the commitment of the company towards the field of inmate communications and prison technology. Securus Technologies has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas, and has other branch officers in Allen, Carrollton, and Atlanta. The company also provides parolee tracking services and government information management solutions.
Recently, Securus Technologies shared with the world the views of the law enforcement officers about the enterprise. The company receives hundreds of letters each week from the law enforcement personnel, and the company decided to share parts of these letters in an open press release on the internet. The law enforcement officials felt much safer after using the products and services of Securus Technologies and also helped them catch the offenders much quickly. The information provides by Securus Technologies’ services such as LBS and Investigation Pro makes it easier for the law enforcement officers. I feel that such services are highly needed in times when the crime rate is increasing across the globe and communities are vulnerable to criminal activities.
