Securus Technologies is widely known for their social entrepreneurship philosophy that has allowed them to make correctional facilities safer places for all who dwell inside and to help inmates integrate back into society once they are released. Having been involved in this sector for nearly three decades, Securus Technologies is still raising the bar every day.
Securus Technologies has made correctional facilities safer by targeting the choice tool that criminals use to plan crimes once inside, the contraband cell phone. Contraband cell phones are often used to text, call, Tweet, or use social media to contact other inmates so they can plot how to attack those they do not like on the inside.
Securus Technologies has put a stop to this by selling two products. The first product is their flagship resource, and that is called Cell Defender. This resource identifies the location of contraband cell phones and allows security guards to access the text messages, phone calls, or voicemails. The second product is Wireless Containment Solutions. This works in league with Cell Defender and turns off the Wi-Fi capabilities once a phone is accessed.
Securus Technologies also specializes in helping inmates to weave back into society. The first way that Securus Technologies does this is by keeping the relationship strong between the inmate and their family. Securus Technologies accomplishes this by selling webcam equipment to correctional facilities so that inmates can see and talk to their loved ones while they are serving time.
Securus Technologies also provides computer equipment that is programmed to access several accredited online universities. Inmates may use these online universities to obtain certificates and degrees in skill-based occupations.
This allows for the third product that Securus Technologies offers. They offer a database of businesses that are known to higher inmates once they are released from jail.
