Why I Prefer Services from Securus Technologies

When it comes to the purchase of goods and services, I always go for whatever I deem my money’s worth. And I believe the same applies to every one of the consumers out there. That said, here are some of the advantages of the services I procured from Securus Technologies just recently.


First and foremost, I enjoyed the exclusivity that their services give. And speaking of the services provided by Securus Technologies, it includes incident management, investigation, communication, monitoring products, biometric analysis and emergency response just to mention a few.


What I love about these services is the fact that they ensure both the safety of the civil servants as well as the inmates, making the law enforcement and corrections agencies a tad safer hence conducive to work in. I also appreciate the fact that Securus Technology is doing all in its power to keep their technological edge as they almost always come up with a product every week for their clients.


For the very first time, inmates can video chat with their loved ones, something that helps them reduce their stress levels. They can also leave messages for their families and get to share moments that they would have slightly missed because of their ongoing incarceration.


They have also helped the agencies under their aegis to make sure that they are always getting their email systems taken care of, therefore bringing a lot of order and accountability among the employees.


I am confident that Securus Technologies have played a significant role in the prevention of the circulation of drugs and other contraband in the correction facilities, which has allowed a lot of inmates to get their act together and reform thoroughly. It is no wonder Securus Technology has over 1,200,000 inmates using their services and at the same time serving almost 3,500 law enforcement facilities countrywide.


Securus Technologies saves inmates thousands and solves crimes

Securus Technologies, the leading provider of prison telephony services throughout the United States, has been widely lauded for its large lineup of products that serve both inmates and staff in ways the competition only dreams of.


One of Securus’ most popular products has proven to be its suite of video visitation systems. These have been a blessing for the families of inmates who, in times past, would have been forced to drive hundreds of miles to see their incarcerated loved ones for just a few hours. This has allowed for inmates who may have passed their entire sentence without seeing their families more than a few times to keep in nearly constant touch with those who give their lives meaning.


An example of exactly how much value video visitation has added to the lives of inmates and their families can be illustrated with a real-life example. One inmate, from San Diego, CA, was convicted of armed robbery. He was sent to San Quentin, located 700 miles away on the shores of the San Francisco bay. For the first 5 years of his sentence, he only saw his family, a poor clan of Hispanic agricultural workers, once. The one time they went to visit him, it cost them $2000 by the time all was said and done. They couldn’t afford to visit again.


Then Securus video visitation was installed. Suddenly the cost of a 15 minute, face-to-face visitation dropped from $2000 to $2. The inmate talked weekly to his family for the rest of his stay and, upon release, did not recidivate.


But such enormous benefits are not limited to inmates. Video visitation allows staff to monitor all calls and prevent illegal activity from being carried out on prison grounds. Ultimately, between crime prevention and lower recidivism, Securus video visitation saves not just dollars but lives.
