Securus Technologies Inmate Telephone System Thwarts Illegal Scheme at U.S. Correctional Institution

Securus Technologies is the leading provider of correctional technological solutions in business today. Based in Dallas, Texas, Securus Technologies reports that it maintains contracts with over 2,600 correctional institutions in the United States today.

 

One of the widely utilized Securus Technologies services is its inmate telephone systems. Indeed, at this point in time, the Securus Technologies inmate telephone systems are the most widely utilized in North America.

 

The Securus Technologies inmate telephone systems provide a vital means of contact between incarcerated men and women and their loved ones in the outside world. Studies reveal that offenders who are able to maintain consistent contact with their loved ones while incarcerated are less likely to reoffend when then are released back into society. The Securus Technologies inmate telephone systems are considered to be important solutions when it comes to lowering the offender recidivism rate in the United States.

 

The Securus Technologies inmate telephone systems also assist in enhancing the security of correctional institutions. Through the Securus Technologies inmate telephone systems, the telephone calls of incarcerated individuals can be monitored appropriately and as needed.

 

The head of a correctional institution in the United States reported how a Securus Technologies inmate telephone system foiled a scheme to bring contraband into the facility. In this case, the scheme involved not only an incarcerated individual but a member of the correctional institution’s staff as well.

 

By monitoring an inmate’s telephone calls, the institution was able to obtain enough preliminary information and evidence to obtain a warrant. With the warrant, the institutional staff was able to confront the suspected staff member. Through this process, additional evidence was obtained. Ultimately, the staff member involved in the illegal scheme was arrested. The staff member now faces criminal prosecution. Moreover, illicit contraband was kept out of the correctional institution thanks in part to the Securus Technologies inmate telephone system.

 

With Christmas looming, Securus raises awareness of video visitation

Over the last decade, leading inmate communications firm Securus Technologies has been rolling out its innovative video visitation system. This system is a quantum leap over in-person visits and has enabled many inmates to stay connected to their families and loved ones who would otherwise have not had the opportunity to do so. As Christmas nears, Securus recognizes the vital importance this new technology plays in connecting inmates with their families during a tough time of year.

 

 

No place like home

 

For many families, the first few holidays during which a loved one is incarcerated can be particularly hard. Younger children have difficulty understanding why their fathers aren’t around and even for the grown-ups, knowing that they’ll someday be reunited can be little comfort during a traditional time of togetherness.

 

Making matters worse, many families with incarcerated loved ones simply don’t have the funds to come visit them at the prison. Video visitation from Securus solves these problems. The relatively low cost video visitation system allows for inmates to spend virtually unlimited time with family over a high quality video phone connection. Whereas all in-person visits are time-limited, video visitations are subject only to the inmate’s privileges and money on their calling plan. This makes a video call the next best thing to being there in person.

 

Because of the enormous psychological benefits of inmates being able to participate in the lives of their loved ones over the holidays, Securus has undertaken a campaign throughout all of its institutions to spread the word about the many benefits of video visitations. They’ve put together mailing campaigns to family members and have even done a number of touching, real-life video visitation testimonials such as this one.

 

Jail is a hard enough place to be. Securus believes in second chances, that most inmates just made a few mistakes and deserve to be treated in a respectful and humane way. There’s no better way to diminish the chances of recidivism than to allow inmates to be an ongoing part of their families lives. Hope will keep them going on the inside and it will keep them from going back once out.
