Securus Technologies is a for profit company that provides innovative technology solutions to American prisons to help modernize the inmates and staff’s experience. Securus was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1986. Since then the company has set up regional offices in several locations that include: Carrollton and Allen, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia and employs around 1,000 employees.
Securus Technologies is always looking to expand its reach and challenge itself to consistently bring cutting edge technology to the table. In just a span of three years the company spent hundreds of millions of dollars investing in technologies, patents, and acquisitions. This unwavering ambition has led to Securus Technologies being relied on by thousands of public safety and corrections agencies across the nation.
Securus’ telecommunications services have garnered more attention than any of the other services they provide. Securus is a leading provider of telephone service for inmates in the U.S. Recently, the company has decided to use its telecommunications services in a more philanthropic way.
The mayor himself has asked for federal aid from the government to help rebuild housing and businesses that were destroyed during this recent natural disaster. Many organizations and individuals have donated funds to the Louisiana victims.
Securus has teamed up with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (LA DOC) in an effort to allow each inmate one free-of-charge call per day, to help them stay in contact with relatives and loved ones that may have been victimized by the floods. Securus has also donated $50,000 in cash to the inmate welfare fund at LA DOC.
