Many companies are trying to grab the significant market share in the growing correctional industry, but one of the companies that have continued to retain its dominant position over the years is Securus Technologies. The company believes that there is a lot of scope in this industry and much more needs to be done to transform and modernize the sector. Over the years, the company has developed many innovative products and services for the law enforcement agencies and officers as well as inmates, which have helped them in ways more than one to better their lives. The law enforcement officers have admitted to feeling much safer and more confident when using the services of Securus Technologies as it ensures that the law enforcement agencies are one step ahead of the criminals.
Securus Technologies also offer reliable government information management system, security and surveillance services, parolee tracking system, and more. The primary aim of Securus Technologies is to ensure that the company can better the lives of the inmates, provide the inmates with smart, efficient, and economical communication services, and ensure that the law enforcement agencies have the tools they need to protect the civilians from the criminals. The criminals are also kept in check when the law enforcement officers use the advanced technology to get the evidence necessary to convict the criminals in the court of justice.
Securus Technologies started its operations in the year 1986 and had grown tremendously since then. The company has also acquired many smaller companies in the correctional industry to expand its outreach and product portfolio. So far, the company has over sixty patents in the prison sphere and continues to invest more for patent acquisition. It would help the company to develop products that are one of its kind and would also help Securus Technologies to retain its dominant position in the industry.
Securus launched a mobile application that allows inmates to communicate with their loved ones using video call technology. The program is dubbed inmate video phone calls and is available for android smartphones, tablets as well as products from Apple including iPhones, iPods and iPads. A PR Newswire review find this application to be fascinating, ingenious and innovative because it offers incarcerated inmates an online platform that allows an easy way to have an interactive visit with their families, friends and any other acquaintances.
I find the introduction of video visitation to the rigid environment in prisons and jails highly innovative. The free mobile application can easily be downloaded from the App Store for Apple products. Androids smartphones users can download the application on Google Play. Since the launch of the visitation app for android operating systems (six months ago), there have been over 60,000 downloads. The Apple devices’ version received 5,000 downloads in a span of one week.
What is amazing is that the new vimeo visitation application eliminates the use of web cameras, tethered computers or other additional hardware. Mobile users can simply use their Apple or Android devices provided they have access to Wi-Fi or cellular service. I agree with Robert’s sentiments that the remote visitation app allows families to enjoy special occasions with their incarcerated loved ones especially when traveling to the prison is inconvenient or when simple phone calls are not enough.
Securus Technologies provides criminal justice solutions that ensure public safety. It also supports criminal investigations, monitoring and corrections. It serves as many as 3,400 public safety organizations, correctional facilities and law enforcement agencies. In addition, it serves an incredible 1.2 million inmates. The company provides services like emergency response, youtube video streams, incident management, inmate self-service, investigation, information management, monitoring, biometric analysis and public information. It focuses on offering innovative products to retain its market edge in the industry.
