With the head office in Dallas, Texas, and other offices in Allen, Texas, Carrollton, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia, I believe Securus Technologies is one of the largest prison technology companies in the country. Nearly 2600 correctional facilities in the United States, Mexico, and Canada are served by Securus, which has become a leader in providing solutions in parolee tracking, government information management, incident management, biometric analysis, and detainee communications.
I’ve discovered that Securus works with law enforcement and correctional institutions to serve their unique needs. This includes “cell defender” technology to detect illegal cell phones, and to keep those phones from making connections with mobile networks.
To prevent and solve crimes, I’ve read that the CEO of Securus, Mr. Richard A. Smith, is committed to helping law enforcement by developing new products on a weekly basis. The company wants to provide the best services that will help keep parolees, inmates, and the families of inmates safe and secure.
Securus uses LBS software and I am confident that this software has helped law enforcement recover cash, illegal drugs, and illegal assets. Officials at institutions have been able to collect information that enabled them to get search warrants, by using the covert alert feature.
Their Technology Center in Dallas is available for visits and I hope that present and future investors, along with officials at competing facilities will take advantage of this opportunity to see a presentation by Securus.
