Securus Technologies Offers Communication Options

A recent article in PR Newswire addressed the changing communication situation between inmates at facilities in America and the list of person these inmates want and need to keep in contact with. Securus Technologies is the company making limited and monitored communications possible between loved ones, attorneys, and the inmates. The system being used by Securus also allows for limited outside contact by the inmates for education and possible opportunities when incarcerations are ended. Securus Technologies is now operating 84,000 of these intelligent communication devices in a system that allows for this limited and restricted communication for prisoners. Securus plans for an increase in the number of units deployed, stating it will be 150,000 by the end of 2016.
Securus has in place a communication system that will allow friends and family of inmates greater and easier contact with their loved ones behind bars. The incarceration of a criminal is not only difficult for the prisoner but the family and friends as well. Imagine that your wife or sister was suddenly convicted of a crime and forced to spend years away from everything that had meaning to them, friends, family, home, car, clothes, jewelry. It is an unimaginable existence for most civilized humans, but people under the influence of alcohol or drugs do commit crimes and must be punished by the set of rules that we adhere to as a society.
Incarceration is the penalty aspect of those who have committed crimes and are a danger to society. They are separated from the society that they have harmed, but their return to society playing a positive role must be the objective of incarceration. The means to return are not only remorse but in many cases education. Many criminals commit crimes because they have no alternative avenue to make a living. But when in prison education to obtain a job must be the highest priority. Securus has included this in their communication systems, and we are all better off for their efforts.
