One of the most important aspects of the way technology has developed and changed is the fact that now companies are creating different tech solutions for all aspects of human life. Prison system is no different than any other are and needs the same kind of attention if not more than other areas get. Securus Technologies is a company from Texas that works to create different tech solutions to make the life of prison officers and law enforcement easier. It now works with more than two thousand different prisons across the various states within the US and also has offices in Canada employing more than a thousand people.
Securus Technologies created a possibility for people to communicate with their families and friends outside the correctional facility walls. It is important because it allows individuals who are incarcerated to have a sense of normalcy while they are not able to go home every day. They don’t have to miss out on birthdays, Christmases and other family events because there is also a video call option. All of these things are achieved through tablets or smartphones in prison accessible to people. They have to pay a charge, though, but it is easy to set up and use.
In the future, Securus Technologies want to spread the network and include more prisons in it. They also want to create more technology options that would allow people in prison to educate themselves, talk to their legal team and possibly even start looking for a job to go to once they are released. Their education is important as well, so access to resources is crucial. It helps to keep people motivated and allows the law enforcement to work on crime prevention rather than crime solving.
Securus Technologies has helped to solve cases because of their monitored call system and continue to do so.
