Securus Technologies on the other hand, are based in Dallas Texas. It is currently serving more than 3,450 law enforcement, public safety and correctional agencies across the country. The company provides service to more than 1.2 million inmates and offers other services such as management of incidences, self-service of the inmates, product monitoring services, biometric analysis, public information and communication.
Earlier this year, Securus also received another boost when BBB determined that it had reached their accreditation standards. The standards include a commitment to make a good faith effort in resoling any complaints that come from the customers. This is an indication that the company is being run in a manner that is responsive to the needs of the public and that they are always aiming to improve on this service delivery.
The first in a series of reports regarding an investigation conducted by Securus Technologies, a civil and criminal justice firm has been released. The report is the first in series said to include reports and facts about the wrongdoing of inmate communications provider Global Tel Link. The integrity of Global Tel Link was brought to question when records show that they deliberately overcharged inmates for phone calls causing inmates a major loss in talk time with loved ones.
Securus plans to review the reports over the next six months, and determine the best way to hold GTL accountable for their wrongdoings. Based on the report, Global Tel Link overcharged prisoners and taxpayers by roughly $1,243,000. A formal page order that was issued in January of 1998 by the Louisiana Public Service Commission stated that GTL had been under investigations for the corruption in the past. GTL was given a chance to correct the breech, and rebuild their values. Richard Smith is Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies, he believes their constant act of corruption is offensive to the entire system. Inmates and families should be able to trust their communications provider, as money is scare for inmates and families are often supporting a life on the outside as well.
Securus Technologies is deeply committed to providing a system built on honesty and integrity. Tricking prisoners and their families into paying higher rates is simply wrong. Richard Smith is dedicated to making sure that although the corruption of Global Tel Link was once overlooked, the company will soon be faced with demanding questions about their actions.
Securus is based in Dallas, Texas and serves over 3,400 government agencies and more than 1,200,000 inmates across the U.S. The company was founded in 1986 as a for-profit prison technology provider.
