Securus Technologies has been serving the needs of prisons and jails for years, by providing landline telephone services for inmates to stay connected to the outside world. The company is also known for being the top civil and criminal justice solution for public safety. Until recently, CEO, Richard Smith has opened up a new avenue and innovative way for families and friends to connect with inmates. Mr. Smith understood the difficulties that people like us go through just to be able to spend a short amount of time with the ones we love. We’re constantly fighting traffic, driving for hours in all types of weather, limitations and restrictions, the long lines, high gas prices, and even costly inmate phone calls for just a few minutes. Therefore, it is evident that he has welcomed video visitation technology with the family in mind. WithSecurus Technologies, one can schedule an on-site visit or video meeting. Introducing video not only offers more options to visitation, but it is much more personable. Both parties will feel like they have never missed a beat in each other’s lives. Simply download the app from Google Play or the App Store and connect the software to it. Securus customer representatives can help if you have any issues connecting the two.
This new option is very innovative within the phone industry that serves prisons. Yet, it more than meets the demands for the people. It is also understood that most people that occupy prisons, will someday return to society. So, it is important for them to be offered trades and education in order to effectively operate in society once released. What better way than to provide high-tech solutions to keep them abreast of the ever-changing world of technology. Richard (“Rick”) Smith, offers what he calls “Intelligent communications devices” within the prisons to provide education at high school and university levels. The products include inmate tablets, S-Phones and kiosks for video visitation.
