Securus Communications Technology Benefits Inmates and their Families

Securus is a technology company that specializes in communications for correctional facilities. They also provide communications equipment for organizations and agencies involved within the law enforcement and criminal justice systems. Currently, Securus has implemented a new standard form of communicating devices in at least half of all prison facilities within the United States. This new technology not only allows inmates to talk with their families; it also allows them to see each other through the use of video technology.

The Video Visitation App by Securus is designed for smartphones and other mobile devices. This application gives families the ability to use their mobile units to contact a correctional facility to visit an inmate at a scheduled time. This type of technology is beneficial to prisoners and their families. Family members do not have to always have to travel to a facility to see their incarcerated loved ones or friends. Inmates can see their loved ones more frequently with this technology than when using traditional inmate phone calls.

At least 53% of all correctional facilities approve of this new form of technology that is offered by Securus. Not only does this communications equipment help inmates to serve their time with fewer behavioral issues; it helps to save the prison money.

Securus has performed some research within correctional facilities to figure out how well their technology is being used and received by people involved within the system. What they have discovered is that correctional facilities find the technology beneficial and that inmates appreciate it.

The communications technology that Securus provides can be quickly connected to current communications infrastructure and can be automated for use. Securus has been in business for many years providing technology solutions for inmate communication. They currently are working toward the improvement of communications within the correctional system. You can find out more about Securus and their research for communications technology at PRN News.
