The US technology industry is known for being a leader with regard to technological advancement and creating efficiencies for the consumers that use their products to make their everyday lives easier. We often hear about companies like Facebook and Twitter and how they have revolutionized mass communication. The world often hears about companies such as Uber and Lyft and how they are disrupting traditional transportation industries such as the taxicab industry by making it more convenient and affordable for users to book travel. While the US consumer technology industry is making many advancements companies in the criminal justice technology field such as Securus Technologies are also making an incredible number of advancements when it comes to serving the incarceration and public safety industries with technological solutions.
The company is headquartered in the Southern part of the United States in Dallas, Texas. It has offices across the state of Texas in locations such as Allen, Texas and Carrolton, Texas. Securus Technologies also has a location in the metropolitan city of Atlanta, Georgia. Just as companies like Apple, Microsoft and the search engine Google are known for investing in the development of intellectual property that can drive their industries forward Securus Technologies is also known for developing communications that transform the ways that institutions within the correctional industry can communicate.
During 2016 Securus Technologies made an announcement that alerted the public and the correctional industry that it had spent over $600 million in creating new technologies, securing patents and in growing the scope of its company. People often think of the mainstream technology industry as being the only place that employs some of the most notable talent in engineering, design, and technology but this is not always the case. Companies like Securus Technologies also employ some of the most innovative tech talent to create communications solutions for prisons. The company has also received positive feedback from its customers that have let it know that its tools have allowed them to keep their corrections facilities safe and to ensure that inmates and staff members are in compliance with the facilities’ policies.
