Inmate communication is one of the fastest developing sectors in the correctional sphere, and Securus Technologies is the market leader in providing such services. At present, over 2,600 law enforcement agencies and 1.2 million inmates use the services offered by Securus Technologies. The company recently released a media release on the internet where it published many remarks taken from the letters sent to the company by the police and law enforcement officials. It was an exercise by the company to share with the world the contribution of the company and its efforts to help make enforcement agencies better equipped to protect and serve.
The company also believes in providing fast and attentive customer care service, which is why it was given the Golden Stevie Award for the best customer service training. In the press release that the company published online, it also extended an open invitation to all the potential and existing investors, customers, and technology experts to the company’s technology center situated in Dallas, Texas. The company would offer a presentation to the guests to show the achievements of the company and latest technology that is being developed. As a law enforcement official myself, I can’t be more impressed by the way company has been growing in the past decade, and the contributions company has made in the correctional space.
