Securus Technologies Offers Free Calls to Inmates during Natural Disaster

Securus Technologies, a leading provider of prison communications, serving as many as 1,200,000 inmates throughout the nation is joining forces with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections. They are uniting to give the LA DOC inmates a chance to speak with family each day from September 1st through the September, 7th, 2016.
Securus is taking on the crisis by attacking what it sees as the natural results of such an event. Inmates would normally worry about loved ones, experiencing stress and anxiety about their family’s well-being. As a combat this from happening, Securus Technologies is giving $300,000 worth of phone service to Louisiana’s DOC prisoners and adding another $50,000 to the inmate welfare fund.

 

It’s estimated that the Dallas, Texas headquartered Securus Technologies will help facilitate 250,000 free calls during those few days. In addition to performing civic services like this for the Louisiana prisoners, Securus Technologies serves at least 3,450 public safety, corrections and law enforcement agencies. Their goal is to make the world a safer environment by offering their much needed services like emergency response, monitoring products, communication, incident management, inmate self-service, information management and information management.

 

Securus maintain a leading position in inmate communications because it consistently unveils new technology for its clients in the prison system. Video Visitation is its latest development. Instead of inmates leaving their cell blocks, the inmate can receive his call while in there and the prison guards do not have to escort them to the visiting room. This limited movement also cuts down on the number of violent incidents in prison.

 

Securus Technologies continues improving the lives of inmates through philanthropic gestures like the free calls during a disaster. It further improves their lives by looking for safer ways to provide services. A good example of this is the video visitation, which has probably already saved at least one life in the prison system.

 

 

 

Securus Video Visitations Are Giving Prisoners a Chance to Heal

For thousands of inmates and their families, it hurts the most when they cannot attend important family events with their loved ones. Traditionally, the most practical method to meet someone in the prison was to visit them personally. While such visits may seem easier, but families of prisoners understand how difficult it is to get in touch with incarcerated family members. For most, it means long travel times to remote prison facilities. Even if scheduled, each visit is extended due to lengthy security procedures, which mostly calls for an entire day.

However, Securus Technologies, one of the largest providers of communication facilities in State prisons is changing that. By allowing families video visitations, anyone can easily contact their loved ones in the prison through video streaming. Just like a web cam, prisoners and their families can remotely connect with each other during important family events. Together, they can celebrate birthdays, view graduation parties or even attend important grievance events. Without doing anything technical, Securus and its workforce of highly professional technical representatives can guide families on how to set up the hardware. Usually, most customers already have the desired equipment at their homes including a personal computer or a webcam.
