Companies are expected to follow a certain code of ethics and practices in all their operations. Consequently, licensed or certified entities are highly trusted by their clients to offer desired services without compromising on quality as well as overcharging. However, some entities are operated contrary to the stipulated guidelines. This is termed as a breach of integrity, which is unlawful. Global Tek Link (GTL) is one of the firms that has recently experienced such accusations from various sources like Securus Technologies.
In its proclaimed series of articles, findings, facts and multiple reports, Securus Technologies recently unveiled reports citing the integrity breaches and wrongdoings associated with GTL, articles picked up by PR Newswire media. Consequently, the shaming of GTL is expected to run for a duration of the upcoming six months. This is projected to yield into better standards of integrity.
Proof of GTL’s wrongdoings is contained in a formal document known as Order No.U-20784, which was compiled by the Louisiana PSC during its investigations on GTL. The exposure indicates various wrongdoings such as programming of the clocks to add extra seconds on call durations, unauthorized higher rates, artificially inflating charges to clients, and double billing calls.
Individuals like Richard A. Smith, the Chief Executive Officer of Securus highly disregarded the tarnishing of the inmate communication industry by companies like GTL and earlier offenders such as Enron. Although actions such as those reported by the Louisiana PSC were published on January 21, 1998, they serve as an indicator of what may still be happening in current times. Hence as per crunchbase experts, such offenders ought to be shamed or prosecuted.
Securus is a top provider of advanced criminal and civil justice technology services, which boost the incarceration experience as well as reinforcing public safety. Consequently, over 3450 public corrections, enforcement, and safety agencies depend on Securus for its services. Last year, the company announced its plans to acquire JPay, Inc. in a bid to provide the ultimate avenue for digitized education, entertainment, communications and payments in correctional facilities.
