A provider of tools for, and bettering the systems of, criminal justice bodies across the country, Securus Technologies has announced their first major code release of the year. This upgrade release will benefit corrections facilities and platforms by law enforcement as well as influence communication services used by inmates and their loved ones.
As one of the largest IT companies developing tools for those working in the corrections field, Securus has to consider the needs of housing, monitoring and policing inmates while also providing them with a degree of respite from the crippling inconveniences of their incarceration. According to Securus Technologies’ Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, Russel Roberts, these demands are why the developers at Securus are always looking to better their services and products for this demanding market.
Continuing this mission of stellar service, Securus’ upgrade, only the first of the year, will touch nearly all platforms provided by Securus Technologies: Securus Online, Secure Call Platform, SecureView, Video Visitation, ConnectUs and Investigator Pro. Through the release these platforms and programs will receive new patches that will address defects through new code deployments in preparation for new products to be released later on in the year.
These releases hopes to keep Securus not only competitive in the field of IT support for corrections facilities but also ahead of the technological curve. In a recent statement by Richard A. Smith, CEO for Securus Technologies, they have put in the investment in terms of time, resources and strategy in order to migrate potential clients to their services and platforms and concentrate the company’s talent into developing the best in the field. When it comes to providing communication, Smith wasn’t shy to say that their Secure Calling Platform is easily the most preferred communications platform for law enforcement bodies and corrections facilities in the country.
Securus Technologies calls the city of Dallas, Texas home. It’s from there that they are able to provide services to over 3,400 law enforcement and corrections facilities in North America. These places and the staff who operate them also house 1.2 million inmates that Securus Technologies aids with inmate communication technologies, and helps to police with use of biometric analyses, investigative tools, information made available to the public, managing incidents and general monitoring that makes these facilities safer for those who work there as well as the surrounding communities that rely on the use of their technologies.
