Securus Technologies, the Giant Prison Technology.

Technology is taking over every aspect of our lives; from the way we communicate, the medicines we take, the vehicles we drive and so much more. However, little did I know that the civil and criminal justice department was not left behind in all these, I guess because I am a law-abiding citizen, Isn’t it? Criminal investigations are no longer the lengthy, tedious processes that could see you up and down the corridors of justice. So who did the magic?


Securus Technologies is a prison technology company that is taking over the civil and criminal justice sector. Application of this technology has seen the success of numerous aspects of security such as connecting friends and families to prisoners, helping in investigations and connecting the inmates themselves. Several prisons in the United States, public safety and other agencies concerned with the creation of a safe environment depend on Securus Technologies. It is not only efficient and reliable but also simple and readily available.


From the numerous reviews, I found, several jail officials and other security agencies testify of a vast improvement on their services all thanks to this high technology. Investigation processes that would typically take a long time are now done so fast with Securus technology. An example is one jail official who was tasked to investigate a crime. He applied this technology to listen to the inmate talking with a close family and being coached on the answers to give upon questioning. This information made his investigations quick and so easy. The Securus technology was also applied to curb corruption as an arrest was made easier through the ability of the technology to access phone calls. These are just, but among the few compliments, I managed to read.


Securus Technologies was founded in the late 1980s in Dallas, Texas in the United States. The company has numerous contracts with correctional facilities in US and Canada and employs over 1000 people. It has heavily invested in technology and is in the continuous move to make its technology even better. I was surprised to find that Securus Technologies provides a new technology every week to curb crimes.
