How Securus Technologies is Helping Families Connect with Loved Ones in Incarceration

I believe that Securus Technologies is one of the best companies that serve the correctional industry in the United States. The company has been operating for a few decades and has brought in new and innovative technologies to help connect inmates’ with their families better. When the company started serving the prisons in Dallas in the State of Texas where it was founded, it offered simple ways for inmates and their families to communicate. This was through providing simple telephone services for families to catch up with their loved ones in incarceration. Currently, the company has been successful in that it has offered many services to inmates that include telephone services, fax services, emailing services and now is offering video visitation technology. The new improved video visitation will help families keep in touch with the loved one. If a parent left an unborn child, he or she can communicate with the family and get to know about the welfare of the child.

The video visitation technology developed by Securus Technologies would help the parent who is incarcerated to know how his kids are doing if he left them at a young age. He or she can have a conversation with the child through the video feature that has high clarity. Through this function, the child can see how his father looks which goes to help him built a substantial relationship with the child. This will also assist in the rehabilitation of the person by ensuring that he can share with the family about the recovery process. The benefit to the family is that the spouse does not have to bring the child down to the prison to see his father since the video visitation technology provides an alternative way for the parent and child to connect.

The company was founded in 1986 with its headquarters in Dallas. The success of the company has enabled it to open regional offices around the United States to serve correctional facilities better and efficiently. The company serves over one million inmates across the United States in at least two thousand six hundred prisons in the country. The video visitation technology can be used by anyone with an iPhone, iPad and Android phone at the comfort of their home or their office.
