The telecommunication and security industry is one of the most competitive industries in the world. This is particularly true for the sector that provides services to the law enforcement and correctional facility industry. One of the leading service providers in this part of the industry today is Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies is a Dallas-based firm that has been in operations for over 10 years. The company currently provides services to over 1,000 facilities across the country, which ultimately house over 1 million inmates. This has helped to make Securus Technologies one of the two largest firms in the country.
One of the top products that Securus Technologies provides today is a video visitation service. The video visitation platform uses video chat technology that can be accessed by an inmate through a designated device or portal in the facility. The recipient of the call can then use a mobile device of their choice. By allowing for a video chat service, it has helped to reduce the need for visitation and the facility. This has then helped to make the property safer and more efficient.
While the service provided by Securus has helped to make the property safer and more efficient, it has also helped to solve and prevent crimes. Along with the service, the company provides customer with the option of monitoring the calls. All calls are required to be recorded, unless they are with the attorney of the inmate. Securus Technologies then provides a service in which they can monitor the calls. If there is any suspicious information that is noted during the call, the company will send the information on to the facility or the local authorities. On several occasions, this has provided valuable evidence to either help solve and existing crime or prevent one from occurring in the future.
