Securus Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1986 and has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Today, it employs up to 1,000 people with regional offices in other areas including Allen, Atlanta, and Carrollton. It is reported that Securus Technologies has contracts with nearly 2,600 correctional facilities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. T-Netix and Evercom, two well-known correctional market companies merged in 2004 and 2007, the technology company acquired Syscon Justice Systems, a leading international brand in Offender Management Systems.
The company has since put up a system that helps in the control of contraband phones. By 2006, Access Solutions, which is managed by Securus, was approved by over five facilities in the Department of Corrections. In July 2016, it got into partnership with Harris Corporation regarding the Cell Defender technology. Securus has made announcements on its Wireless Containment Solution this year, a technology that it will use to block contraband cell phones from the mobile networks.
Today, Securus Technologies stands as one of the leading dealers in detainee communications, government information management solutions and parolee tracking. The company enjoys popularity as the leading provider of innovative technical, responsive and comprehensive customer service. Its sole focus is always on the special needs of the law enforcement communities and the correctional facilities. Its various regional offices in the Dallas metro area and Atlanta, Georgia sufficiently serve its customers.
I have come to learn that customers have had a very positive experience with Securus Technologies. From Oct. 21, 2016, PRNewswire, a customer appreciated the company for having assisted him with the required phone calls information so that he was able to obtain the search warrant for a corrupt staff member. This led to the arrest of the member who was dealing in contraband. The customer expressed lots of thanks and was willing to Securus more often.
