The company is based in Dallas Texas and is experience with providing services to public safety organizations, law enforcement bureaus and detainment centers all over the United States. There other services include emergency response, biometric analysis, public information and inmate self service.
Securus Technologies has a firm presence in prison technologies with many facilities around the country. The organization is dedicated to strengthening its infrastructure. Securus has invested up to six hundred million dollars in patents, as well as acquisitions of other companies over a three-year period. Offender Management was an acquisition that Securus made in order to diversify its reach within the industry. Offender management had been the leader in the same field up to that point.
Prisons and jails had a problem with cell phone contraband. Securus was able to introduce a system that eventually got approved by 5 Department of Corrections facilities by 2016. They went on to build a relationship with Harris Corporation on Cell Defender Technology. The program was developed to block cell phones from accessing outside mobile networks.
Securus joined forces with JPay Incorporated. JPay has a solid niche in a similar market. They were having great success providing electronic payments, email and entertainment systems for facilities around the company. Their client list spread out to over 33 different state prisons in the country. Securus believes the acquisition will open doors for both JPay and the parent company.
Executives at Securus plan on allowing JPay to operate as and independent aspect of the company. They will pay very close attention to JPay operating procedures in order to study their success. JPay in turn will benefit from the large resources that Securus Technologies has to offer.
