Securus Technologies is a social entrepreneurship corporation that is located in Dallas, Texas. Having started their business in the late 1980s, Securus Technologies has expanded their influence from coast-to-coast with regional offices in Atlanta, Georgia and throughout the western coast.
Securus Technologies has made it their mission while on earth to help inmates stay safe while they are in the correctional facility and the help them become productive citizens once they leave.
Securus Technologies helps correctional facilities become safer by targeting the inmate’s favorite tool to plan attacks against one another, the contraband cell phone. Securus Technologies has produced two products that make it exceedingly difficult to use contraband cell phones to plot crime. The first product is what is called Cell Defender. This product is capable of locating a contraband cell phone within the walls of the prison. Once a cell phone is located, Wireless Containment Solutions kicks in. From here the user of both products can search the phone for its messages and phone calls and disable its Wi-Fi.
Securus Technologies also helps inmates during their difficult time of transitioning from prison to society.
Securus Technologies helps inmates transition by keeping them in contact with their families while they were serving their time. This is done by installing video computer equipment in the visitation room so that inmates can communicate with their loved ones who cannot make the trip to see them.
They also provide computer equipment to correctional facilities which allow the inmate to take accredited online college courses in skill-based jobs. This certifies them so that they can work with a degree once they leave prison.
Lastly, Securus Technologies provides a database of companies that routinely hire inmates upon their departure. This allows them to secure a job so they can take care of themselves.
