Securus Technologies is among the top prison technology company located in Dallas in Texas. The company was founded in 1986 and has a number of offices across the country such as Atlanta, Texas, Allen, Carrolton, and others. The company currently has contracts with a large number of correctional facilities across the US and Canada. Over the years, Securus Technologies has invested millions in advanced technologies and acquired many patents through their intensive research for newer and better products.
In recent years, Securus Technology has entered more modern industries, the top being the electronic monitoring services. The company has recently acquired two companies that offer GPS-linked ankle bracelets that are used for monitoring prisoners. The two companies are Satellite Tracking of People (STOP) and General Security Services Corporation (GSSC). The electronic monitoring service brings about annual revenue of $300 million to the company. They are constantly working towards making them more secure. With more correctional facilities cutting down on their cost, the number of people required to wear bracelets will likely increase.
There have been many instances when their clients have been open about the benefits that they have discussed. I read through one of their press releases and came across many different comments about their services. What struck me was about one person who worked at a prison facility. He heard inmate talk to one of his siblings along with their mother. The inmate was telling the younger brother exactly what to say in front of the judge about a shooting he was involved in. This helped them find the truth behind the case and solve it with ease. This is just one of the comments that I read in the press release. There were numerous others that all talked about the different incidents where the services of the Securus Technologies have helped them solve crimes.
