Securus Technologies is an entity that primary deal with the provision of civil and criminal justice technology in the country. The essence of offering the utility is mainly for transparency, public safety, and identifying wrong doings being done by a number of inmate communication providers including Global Tel Link.
GTL has been overpricing their services for a long time now. Most inmates cannot afford the current rates put in place by the entity. With the availability of Securus, a lot has been achieved. Currently, Securus is going through the firm’s operation so as to highlight where GTL have been exploiting their clients. This will help other potential customers who happen to be inmates to be keener when receiving the utility being offered by the entity.
Securus will be having a press release for a span of six months so that they can highlight the failures of GTL. This may help a lot in making the firm offer better utility to their clients. When Secures was doing its research, there are a number of things that were realized.
GTL has been overcharging their clients for some time now, and they do not have any regulations to stop the situation anytime soon. At the moment the rates being charged were not permitted by any arm of the government thus making it unlawful.
All the illegal activities that have been practiced by the firm has cost the inmates more than $1.2 million dollars. This is a lot of money keeping in mind that most of the people who always get jailed come from low income earning families.
Securus Technologies headquarters is located in Dallas, Texas. At the moment it is serving more than 1.2 million inmates found in different prisons all over the country. Some of the services it offers to inmates include investigation, public information, and incident management.
