Technology, Automation, Safety, and Profitability Securus Technology Center’s Focus on Success in Corrections for 2016April 11th, 2016
In Dallas, Texas March 31, 2016 Securus Technologies Inc. in conjunction with criminal justice and
correctional facilities, acknowledge that current technology is out of date. Over half of correctional
facilities are planning to update their current technology. Almost as many are looking to increase the
size of their facility. About 15% are seeking to cut costs as their focus on success in 2016. I’m sure that
some if not most of the administrators are looking at more than one of these solutions. Richard A Smith
CEO of Securus Technologies stated “with budgets under constant pressure Correctional leaders are
focused on improving the productivity safety and success of their facility.” He went on to say “that
Research indicates there are big opportunities for agencies to automate operations thereby freeing up
operating cash flow and improving inmate phone calls by collaborating with a company like Securus.”
The majority of correctional facilities know they need to bring their systems up to date. Facilities are
also aware that things like tablets and video visitation can be a contributing factor in inmate satisfaction,
which can aid in the overall safety and security of the facility. They also understand the need for the
ultimate security measures to be utilized in these systems. You can download the Securus video app on Google Play or find it on iTunes.
Securus is recommitting to help provide the solutions criminal justice and correctional facilities will
encounter by investing $1.5 million in their Technology Center. Coming in at 10,500 square feet in the
