When we think of prison inmates we think of hardcore criminals who have committed serious crimes involving murder, rape, drugs and kidnapping. In reality over 86% of inmates are charged with a victimless crime and will be released from prison sometime in their life. Prison used to only be about punishment but as the world is changing so is prison life. Most inmates who are released get sent back to prison within a year or two. Securus Technologies wants to help reduce recidivism. How you ask?
Securus Technology has invested over $600 million in different products and services. So far they have deployed 84,000 intelligent communication devices and plan on exceeding 150,000 devices by the end of 2016. These devices include tablets, video visitation kiosks, and s-phones, all which have the highest level of security. What these devices will do is provide education for the inmates, access to law libraries, better communication with their loved ones, as well has help them find a job when they are released. Preparing inmates for life without bars will better their chances of not becoming an inmate again. The technology that Securus is providing for the jail will not only make the inmates and officers safer but the outside world as well. This software is going to change the face of inmate phone calls. To implement it, simply download the app from either Google play or the App Store, register for the technology and connect the two.
Securus Technology is headquartered in Dallas, Tx and serves over 3,400 correctional facilities. They not only provide these facilities with leading edge technology but they also offer services online for friends and family of the incarcerated. If you are unable to visit your loved one that is behind bars you can do so through their website and video chat. This will save you time, gas, and money. Securus also provides emergency response, incident management, as well as providing you with public information solutions. Their leading technology for the incarcerated is helping make the world a safer place.
Inmates that sit in a cell all day every day with one hour of “recess” will become antisocial and disturbed. Their chances of committing a more serious crime once released become greater. Providing them with these technologies will help prepare them for the outside world, better their education and reduce the risk of a more serious crime being committed.
