Securus Technologies is a technology company that works with criminal and civil justice institutions across the United States. The services offered by the company are there for more than a million inmates in thousands of different correctional facilities, mostly located within northern America. Securus Technologies is currently based in Dallas, Texas. They offer a variety of different services, including incident management, emergency response, biometric analysis, communication, information management, and more.
As of late, Securus Technologies has stated that they have discovered evidence of bad activity from Global Tel Link and that they will be sharing information with the general public. Global Tel Link is also a company that offers communication services to inmates. Richard Smith, the current Chief Executive Officer for Securus Technologies, has stated he believes institutions like his own should be prioritizing their services with law enforcement, inmates, and the general public. The goals for this sector are critical, and the firms experts should be making sure the clients interest remain a top priority. Securus plans to release its information on Global Tel Links misconduct through various press releases over the coming 6 months.
Securus plans to make their first press release showing dishonest practice from GTL about them offering their services to the Louisiana Department of Corrections, which they have a 17 page publication that has already been approved. On top of this there were many unknown charges be added to and increasing the overall bills. There was also double billing on calls, and all of this misconduct was performed intentionally with the intention of overcharging their customers. This means GTL illegally took hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax money from people.
