It is becoming increasingly obvious that the new era of business will be that of the social entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship specialize in creating products that deal with a felt need in the world. They make their money by creating products that touch people where they hurt. One company that has perfected this mindset is Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies was founded in 1989, and their goal is to make our correctional facilities safer places to be. They have their headquarters stationed there in Dallas, Texas and two more regional offices in Atlanta Georgie and Carrollton, Texas.
Securus Technologies makes out correctional facilities safer by focusing on the leading cause of inmate death, inmate on inmate crime. Securus Technologies has provided many products over the years, but recently they have changed to meet the new landscape before us. The main tool used now to plan inmate on inmate crime are contraband phones in the correctional facility.
Contraband phones are used to text other inmates so that they can coordinate their attack. If Securus can shut down the use of phones, then the prisons will automatically become a safe place. Securus Technologies does this through three products.
The first product is called “Cell Defender, ” and it allows one to pinpoint the exact location of a contraband cell phone when it is being used. This is crucial because contraband phones are often stashed in the correctional facilities.
The second product helps Securus trace the phone calls and also to download all verbal communication and text messages.
The last product is their Wireless Containment Solutions. Securus Technologies knows that you do not need a plan to access the internet and that many inmates plan their attacks by using Facebook messenger. This great product allows them to negate a phone’s inherent ability to connect to Wi-Fi.
Christmas is a time of the year we all anticipate. It is a festive season that brings, joy and fun between families. For many, it is a time where people share memories of days gone and making new memories. To others, it is a time to go through family traditions which have been passed down for several generations. For whatever reason, Christmas is a special day for everyone. From the youngest to the oldest, it carries a very special purpose and meaning.
People in correction facilities should also enjoy the joy and fun of Christmas. They can achieve this by making calls to their families during Christmas. I understood how the video visitation works when I saw a promotional video by Securus Technologies. The video was that of an inmate spending time with his child during the Christmas festivities. The video showed how spending time together was valuable for both parties. Through the use of the video visitation system, families have been able to get in touch with other family members frequently. From the YouTube video, the child was delighted to talk with his father who is an inmate in one of the correction facilities.
The video visitation program has enhanced inmate communication to their family members. Inmates can finally spend time with their families during important occasions. Apart from the Christmas holiday season, a father can participate in other occasions such as graduation, birthdays and special events. The video visitation program is one of the best inventions by the technology company. The service has fostered proper family relationship for people separated by prison walls. I think that the video program is one of the best ways to ensure inmates never return to jail once released.
Securus Technologies is a company that excels in technology and communication services in correction facilities. The company avails its services to the general public. It has grown to serve close to four thousand correction facilities within the United States. The number of people connected to the company’s communication system has increased to 1, 200,000 inmates.
