Securus Technologies Wants to Improve Prisons For Inmates and Their Workers

Securus Technologies is located in Dallas, Texas and is working to secure the safety of over 3,500 people in public safety and other law enforcement jobs. The agency is working to create a better tomorrow for inmates and their families along with the people who work within the prison walls.


There are over a million inmates who are incarcerated at one time in the United States. Of those inmates, there are crime levels of inmate to inmate attacks that could be prevented with the right sources, teachings, products or services. It is the job of Securus Technologies to come up with different ways to decrease the levels of crime rates in the prison system.


Every year, Securus Technologies is asked to help with solving the crime rate inside of prisons. Their main goal weekly is to come up with a new and exciting way to lessen the crime levels whether it is from eliminating contraband inside the prisons or finding a way to prove what crimes have been committed and who is responsible for the crime.


There are certain things that go on inside a jail which could be prevented if the right services and products are used. For instance, if an inmate has a contraband phone and attempts to use the phone, the phone will be unable to access the mobile network from within the prison walls.


Another good idea that Securus has worked on is the recording of all calls being placed from within the walls of the prison. These phone calls can then be listened to in order to hear a burden of proof that needs to met for an inmate who is responsible for a crime. If the inmate speaks to someone about the crime that they are charged with, the call can then be played back and can be used in a trial to prove that the inmate was responsible for the crime they are charged with.
