Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Rick Smith of Securus Technologies knows that his company offers crime prevention technology for corrections customers that make their facilities safer, however, it is always gratifying to hear from officials who found the company’s products and services useful.
Securus customers who wrote or emailed the company were officials charged with keeping a jail for prison safe. In one instance, Securus’ location-based software helped law enforcement recover a cache of illegal drugs, while in another case, monitored calls revealed inmate drug use in the facility. In many cases, Securus’ technology provided actionable intelligence for officials. Once inmates bent on continuing their illegal activities from inside their prison discover that they cannot use the telephones without being caught, they will have to stop, therefore, the rest of the inmates will be safer.
Securus’s CEO is certain that if prospective customers visit the company’s Technology Center in Dallas, Texas, they will find the most innovative inmate communication, LBS software and other crime prevention and investigation products and services. In fact, there will probably be a new product there, since, as Smith says, “Once a week on average, we develop a new product or service that helps law enforcement and corrections officials to solve and prevent crimes.”
