Securus Technologies Modernizing the Correctional Industry for a Better Future

When two major correctional firms, Evercom and T-Netix, merged in 1986, a new company was formed by the name of Securus Technologies. It continues to be the leader in the correctional sphere and has by far the best catalog of products and services in the industry, backed by award-winning customer service. The company was previously known by the name of TZ Holdings but changed its name to Securus Technologies in 2009. Over the years, Securus Technologies has been able to make a name for itself in the industry and develop a wide range of products and services that are futuristic and advanced. Securus Technologies knows that the only way to grow amidst fierce competition in the correctional sphere is to develop products that would meet the specific requirements of the end users.


Currently, Securus Technologies serves the correctional industry and all its branches, including the inmate communication services, investigative services and solutions, parolee tracking system, and the governmental information management system. Securus Technologies knows and understands that it is not easy to win the trust of the customers in such a competitive market, and that is why it focuses on developing better products than on marketing gimmicks. Securus Technologies is known to have some of the best technologies in the corrections space, and its products and services are widely appreciated even by the industry leaders. Securus Technologies has been able to secure the A+ ratings from the Better Business Bureau and has won the Gold Stevie Award as well for having the best customer service training team in the industry.


A press release was recently published by the company that contained words of encouragement written to the company by the law enforcement officers who feel that technology and services of Securus Technologies are superior to any other companies in the market. It has dramatically boosted the market reputation of the firm.



Securus Technologies fights the scourge of illicit cell phones in prison

One of the most serious threats that faces the nation’s prisons today is that posed by contraband cell phones. When unauthorized cellular devices fall into the wrong hand in the nation’s prison, the results can be catastrophic.


This is largely due to the unique nature of America’s organized prison gangs. For reasons that go back to the beginning of the U.S. prison system, as well as those that are more recent developments, such as the racially diverse nature of the country’s prison population, the U.S. prison system has fostered the growth of some of the most well-organized, formidable prison gangs anywhere on the planet.


These organizations often operate on a military-like hierarchy, with clear leadership and a lower tier of soldiers, who are often as regimented and well-disciplined as any found in the nation’s armed forces. Because of the extremely organized and effective nature of these gangs, merely locking them up often does little to ensure that they are unable to continue carrying out their criminal enterprises. So long as these gangs have members on the outside willing and able to do their bidding, the only thing they need to continue operating with 100 percent effectiveness is that ability to communicate with their soldiers on the outside.


For this reason, contraband cellular devices have become the bane of the U.S. prison system. Using unauthorized cell phones, prison gang leaders, also known as shot-callers or generals, are able to communicate all orders with the outside in an almost instantaneous fashion. In fact, many of these gangs maintain networks of illicit communications channels within the prisons where they are housed, making it nearly impossible to shut down their ability to communicate with the outside world by traditional methods alone, as one or even five confiscated cell phones within their network has little effect due to the fact that they have ten other backups.


Securus is changing the game


But now, there is a promising new technology that may prove the magic bullet prison officials have been looking for to solve the problem of illegal communications devices within prisons. Known as the Wireless Containment System, Securus has developed a technology that has a nearly 100 percent rate of detecting and intercepting all unauthorized communications within a prison’s grounds. The system is able to spoof local cell phone towers, making all devices think that they are connecting to the tower when, in fact, they are detecting to the WCS.


The system is also capable of homing in on all cellular devices within its purview that are currently turned on. This has enabled officers to dramatically increase the detection rate of illegal cell phones, making it nearly impossible for gangs to maintain the ability to use unauthorized communications devices.


Why Securus Technologies offers Outstanding Services

When it comes to service delivery, no company in Texas stands out like Securus Technologies. Starting from the management to operations structures, Securus Technologies is a unit built for greatness. As the corporation celebrates its thirty-first birthday, it does so with its head held up high.


For three decades, Securus Technologies has been one of the reasons as to why America in its entirety is safe. Through its high-tech technology, Securus Technologies has been able to not only detect criminal activities but also prevent them from happening. For that reason, Securus Technologies has won over the attention of the thousands of prison facilities all around Texas that would want their security levels beefed up.


By providing incarcerated members with communication services, Securus Technologies has been able to monitor calls in and out of the penitentiary systems carefully. In so doing, some ‘silly’ inmates have led Securus and other law enforcement agencies to crime scenes past forgotten allowing new cases to get opened while old ones, closed.


Also, such calls have resulted in some rather compelling evidence that has brought to book crime king-pins and queen-pins that once thought were untouchable. By eliminating criminals from the streets of American towns and cities, Securus Technologies has helped keep innocent civilians safe.


Under the active leadership of Rick Smith, Securus Technologies has taken pride in creating new technology weekly. In so doing, the tech provider has kept law enforcers a step ahead from notorious criminal gangs, some of which still operate within the prison systems. As a result, corrupt prison officials have gotten discovered and are now serving their sentences behind bars.


Since 1986, Securus Technologies has helped uncover a lot of crime in America, helping the United States government to gain possession of drugs, stolen money, and even weapon caches. Thus, Securus Technologies has proven to be a ‘smooth criminal’ in a society run by ‘smart gangs.’
