One of the ways that people keep in touch with their inmates is through visiting the jails. While this is one of the best things to allow for inmates and their families, there is one issue. For one thing, it is not always convenient because some people live very far away from prisons and jails where the inmate is incarcerated. This would mean taking long rides and wasting a lot of gas. It is even worse when people do not have a car. Therefore, they do not have a means to get where they need to be to visit the inmate.
Fortunately, there is a new method available for keeping in touch from Securus Technologies. This new form of communication is called the Anywhere Visit. With Anywhere Visit, people could visit from the comfort of their homes or anywhere provided that they have the device that is needed in order to pull this off. Another good thing about Anywhere Visit is that it allows people to schedule a visit at anytime. This is a huge improvement over the limited visitation hours for inmates in jail. Another issue that often occurs when people go to visit an inmate is the long wait in lines that tend to occur.
Securus is always looking for ways to make life easier for people. For one thing, they think about a lot of solutions. One of the reasons that they come up with these ideas is that they understand that inmates have families. Often times, the families and friends of the inmates want to visit and see them. Therefore, they have deemed it worthwhile to provide something that will help the families of the inmate keep in touch. After all, it is not just the inmate that is suffering in his sentence. The suffering and pain is shared with friends and family as well.
Securus Technologies is a privately held company which provides its products and services to the law enforcement industry. They have contracts with police department and correctional facilities throughout the United States and Canada. They employee over 1,000 people and are headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Securus Technologies was founded in 2012 and today has additional offices, including a call center, located in Allen and Carrolton, Texas as well as Atlanta, Georgia.
One of the main products that Securus Technologies provides is technology that controls the entry of contraband cell phones into correctional facilities. They are also able to monitor calls into and out of these facilities regardless of what type of device is being used for the phone call. One of their latest technologies, called “Wireless Containment Solution”, can prevent contraband cell phones from connecting to mobile networks and therefore making it impossible to use them to communicate with others.
Customers of Securus Technologies have praised the company for developing the technological tools and services that make their job protecting the public much easier. The company’s CEO, Rick Smith, released some of the many letters they have received from the law enforcement community. A few of the letters said that they have uncovered existing crimes as well as those being planned through monitoring calls using their technology. This has resulted in uncovering drug networks, murders, and other crimes. Another correctional facility used the monitoring software in order to uncover a staff member that had been making money by bringing in cell phones that they supplied to inmates.
A police officer wrote in to say how they used Securus Technologies LBS software. This software, along with other resources, enabled them to recover millions of dollars worth of cash, drugs, and illegal assets that a group of criminals had accumulated.
