Securus technology develops roughly a new product every week. The company’s CEO and Chairman Richard A. Smith has dedicated the company to helping law enforcement and correctional officials in crime prevention both in and out of correctional facilities. The company receives thousands of emails and letters with regards to the products they build and how their technology keeps society safe. The company is dedicated to safety not only of the correctional officials but inmates, parolees and their families as well.
Securus technology has been the driving force to law enforcement agencies in their fight against criminal activities. A police officer at a Sheriff’s department recently congratulated the company in the help they provide with their software. He stated that their job would be a lot more difficult without the software. This was after they had recovered drugs, illegal assets as well as money that had been stolen.
With the help of Securus technology, a corrupt correctional facility staff member was detained after information from phone calls he had made was used to get a search warrant. The corrupt official was subsequently arrested for introduction of contraband into the facility. Correctional facilities can now not only protect their staff from inmates but also protect their inmates from their staff as well. This is all thanks to Securus technologies.
