Securus Technologies is a newly designed and innovative company that has been offering a vast array of opportunities for people to connect. Perhaps one of the most commonly utilized form of its technology is communications between inmates and their relatives, family members, and/or significant others. It is a form of communication that enables people to connect with one another via means of video conferencing in which the individual who is at home who would have visited the correctional facilities ends up being able to connect with the inmate in jail. In this particular case, the physical visitation is not necessary. That may actually be a good thing as inmates are often required to have their visitors undergo lengthy visitation processes in which the visitors are required to wait for appointment times to open up and be scheduled for visitation times that they were not necessarily ready for. By connecting with an inmate through the use of Securus Technologies, one can have certainty in knowing that they will still be able to connect while being able to chat from the comfort of their own home.
Securus Technologies is also a wonderful form of communications that have helped police officers to “crack” crimes in the sense that when the communications occur, the conversations are recorded and in the case the inmate is to say anything in pertinence to a crime that has occurred or is currently occurring in the center that they are jailed in, the authorities can use the segment(s) as evidence for solving crime. This is one of the reasons why this technology is so valuable and important to implement into as many correctional facilities as possible as it provides inmates’ family members, friends, and significant others with a commodity that provides them with convenience, it enables inmates to have some free time, and it gives the authorities a tool for making their jobs easier.
