One of the most consistent companies regarding performance and innovation in the correctional sphere has been the Securus Technologies. It is the company that was set up in 1986 when two other telecommunication giants merged, Evercom and T-Netix. The name of the company was changed to TZ Holdings, which was again renamed in 1992 to Securus Technologies. The company has invested millions over the years into developing new investigative and inmate communication services, along with many other types of cutting-edge technologies. One of the new technologies that the Securus Technologies recently rolled out is the wireless containment solutions. It is a technology that would without a doubt put an end to the use of contraband phones inside the prison facilities.
For many years, Securus Technologies has been working on developing the top-notch contraband interdiction technology. The primary and the only aim of the wireless containment solutions are to stop the contraband phones from being used by the inmates. No matter how strict are the security measures in the correctional facilities, it has been seen that the contraband phones always finds its way inside. The wireless containment solution by Securus Technologies would jam the contraband phones and make it impossible for it to connect to any carriers. As of now, the wireless containment system has been able to stop almost 1.7 million illegal and unauthorized communications from inside the prison. Many crimes have taken place inside as well as outside the prison that was directed using the contraband phones.
Securus Technologies, as well as the entire nation, was in the state of shock and dismay when a video went online that was shot by an inmate on his contraband phone. The people were surprised to see how easy it is to get the phone inside the prison and then make a video out of it for three minutes. It opened eyes of people too much vulnerability in the current security system being followed in most of the correctional facilities. The wireless containment solution would ensure that the contraband phones are rendered useless inside the prison. As per the orders by FCC, the process of getting and installing the wireless containment solutions in the correctional facilities would be expedited.
Securus Technologies has some of the best brains working behind the development of the wireless containment solutions. One of the former corrections offers by the name of Robert Johnson is also working in the capacity of a consultant with Securus Technologies. He has helped tremendously in the development of the wireless containment solutions. The wireless containment solutions by Securus Technologies is approved, authorized, and accepted, which makes it the only contraband interdiction technology in the country. The company is happy that its creation would help in making the community, safer and secure.
Dallas-based Securus Technologies, the leader in law enforcement investigative and corrections services, just announced its acquisition of GovPayNet.
The service pay provider GovPayNet is the industry leader in the processing of credit cards and debit payments to governmental agencies. The company offers a variety of payment processing services including to bail-bonding companies, traffic courts, fines and even parking and speeding violations.
GovPayNet offers services in 35 states, which includes about 26% of counties in the U.S.
Securus CEO Bob Pickens says he is delighted to have added GovPayNet to the company’s already extensive portfolio. “GovPayNet has a long history of offering superior services, great customer satisfaction and associates that have helped the business grow.”
CEO of GovPayNet Mark McKenzie says he is proud to be doing business with Securus. “We are looking forward to bonding with such a great company that offers a wide range of products and services.”
GovPayNet has been working with the government for over 20 years. It was founded by a sheriff in 1997 who was looking for a more streamlined system to process government payments. The company has expanded its processing system to reach over 2300 law enforcement agencies and governmental departments in the U.S.
The business of Securus Technologies Inc. started gaining a lot of attention over the past couple of years or so due to the active involvement of the company in the industry of inmate communications.
As a provider of technology for criminal and civil justice, Securus Technologies Inc. sells tech solutions to institutions for public safety, correctional facilities, investigation services, and he likes. The company has been a provider of telecommunication technology as well in order to make a full circle in their line of work.
Securus Technologies Inc. started offering telecommunication services back in 2016, and it quickly rose up in the industry of inmate communications. As Securus Technologies Inc. increasingly gains experience and authority of the expanding industry, the company also discusses several aspects of the future of the industry of inmate communication.
Securus Technologies Inc. believes that the incarceration can lead to a good result only if the inmates are treated well and integrated into a community that they can care about. Showing that society can be good to them should increase their chances of leaving criminal lives behind and starting anew once they are out of person
In order to achieve that Securus Technologies Inc. discusses the importance of fundamental rights such as good health care, more easily accessible means of communication, access to education services, and the likes. In present times, inmates still do not have a reliable access to health care as some hospitals and professionals even refuse to take in an inmate. Securus Technologies Inc. believes that that needs to change.
Another aspect of their lives is that inmates do not receive college-grade education in prisons. Increase the education level in correctional facilities should, in turn, increase the inmates’ desire to integrate and accomplish something in the outside world someday, according to Securus Technologies Inc.
Securus is an impressive company that I can look up to for their integrity, innovation, and business ethics. As a business person myself, I am always looking for companies that model how to handle growth. Securus started out as a smaller company. There were founded in 1986 and have roots in Texas. Soon, however, they had grown. The niche that they are supplying is communication for prison inmates, parole tracking, and government database services. This niche has demanded the Securus services since the company began. A steady growth of employees, contracts, and inmates served has ensued since the founding days.
Securus now estimates that they employ around 1,000 people and that these numbers are growing. They serve prisons in 45 states, and also extend into Mexico and Canada. They have provided technological communications services to well over 2,000 prisons. They work within the correctional system to help prevent crimes, monitor activity, track paroled inmates, and manage information for the government. A merge with the well known Syscon Justice Systems back in 2004 contributed to the growth that Securus was experiencing. I find it interesting to see that they maintained integrity through these massive shifts and changes, while growing on such a large scale.
The Securus company model is built around trustworthiness and integrity. One thing that I always look for within a business is how transparent they are. If they are not transparent, then what are they hiding? Securus is highly transparent and just last year they released a bunch of customer comments about what it was like to use the Securus technology. The comments revealed how much correctional facilities value the services that Securus provides.
One commentator stated that they had been relying on Securus for over twelve years, and was really impressed with the technology. They stated that in particular they valued Securus’ “committed to both revolutionizing the incarceration environment and progressively helping us to improve public safety”. This is great feedback! The comments were just a sample of the kinds of feedback the Securus said they receive weekly. It seems that their product is adding a great deal of value to the criminal justice system through the services that they offer.
Crime prevention is one of the most crucial aspects of a secure business. Corrupted staff members can go unnoticed for months and sometimes even years, but in North America, there has been a rise in the security of both business and facilities.

The company has fulfilled more than 3 000 contacts with clients. The services of Securus Technologies are geared towards correctional facilities, governmental offices and locations, as well as to business owners of any size.

In the middle of 2016, CEO Rick Smith made an announcement that Securus Technologies had invested the milestone amount of more than $600 million in improving their services in terms security solutions.
The clients of Securus Technologies have expressed their gratitude for the company on the official website as well as on a number of forums online.
