Securus Technologies was founded in 1986. It is headquartered out of Dallas, Texas and provides technologies services for prisons across the United States and Canada. It has branch offices located in Carrollton, Texas, Allen, Texas, and Atlanta Georgia. Securus Technolgies is made up of about 1,000 employees and services about 2,200 correctional facilities.
Securus Technologies has reportedly invested more than $600 million dollars in technologies, patents, and acquisitions in the past three years. Securus has developed technologies that prevent contraband mobile devices from connecting to the mobile network in correctional facilities. This prevents inmates from using these unauthorized devices at all.
The technologies Securus Technologies has innovated have helped protect inmates, parolees, and prison guards with technologies that intercept conversations between inmates and other people inside and outside. The technologies have been a direct factor in solving many crimes and also preventing some crimes too. Calls are monitored for criminal activity such as drug selling and use in facilities, alcohol use, illegal contraband in facilities, threats against inmates, crimes involving money transfers, and crimes that happened on the outside of these facilities. The technology has also helped identify corrupt staff members and has lead to prosecution.
