Many companies are operating in the correctional sphere, but Securus Technologies is highly famous because it offers customized technological solutions to the correctional space and law enforcement agencies. As the world advances and moves towards rapid technological advancement, it has become important for the law enforcement agencies to use high-end technology to catch offenders and track parolees, and it is the kind of services offered by Securus Technologies.

I have my son in prison, and the communication services offered by Securus Technologies have helped me stay in contact with him for the past two years. Thanks to their affordable services, I do not have to spend exorbitant amounts of money each month, which would have been the case if there would have been any other service provider. I hope Securus Technologies continue to innovate and provide more advanced services to the inmates and the law enforcement agencies.
There may have not been a brilliantly designed and engineered program of communications like Securus Technologies for quite some time. It brings integrated form of state-of-the-art technology to your home. It allows people to communicate with inmates in the forms of what have otherwise been referred to as being “visitation” in which friends or family members visit the correctional facility the inmate is kept in to speak to them in person. However, such processes can be lengthy as appointment slot times are often taken up. By utilizing the program that Securus Technologies has to offer, one can have assurance of knowing that they will be able to stay in touch with the inmate regardless of there being a bit of a barrier between them in which it may have been difficult to set up an appointment during a time in which the appointment slots the visitor(s) may have hoped for were already taken by other visitors of other inmates.
Securus Technologies is not only enabling people to stay connected with one another via means of video conferencing, it is also give police officers a great tool to potentially stop and/or uncover crimes that are occurring within the correctional facilities. When crime occurs and such instances are communicated over the Securus Technologies technologies network, police officers are able to monitor the situation to potentially take action. Such actions can be in the forms of a continuance of monitoring, uncovering crimes, or stopping crimes. Securus Technologies has brought many advantages to the communications world and that happens to be one of them; a tool which assists all parties in the communications, police officers as they are able to monitor the video conferencing sessions, the visitor(s) as they can communicate with the inmate without leaving their homes, and the inmates, as they’re able to stay in touch with their visitors, whether friend, significant other, or family.
Recently Securus Technologies published a press release on their own, clearing up any inaccuracies that were published by Global Tel Link (GTL) in regards to the legalities surrounding patents that were being disputed.
The patents in question are regarding certain aspects of video technology that GTL claims Securus is using without permission these claims include:
GTL claims that all their patents were validated, which Securus claims is not the case as the patents have not been validated and the United States Patent Office have fused to review the case delivered from GTL.
GTL claims that they are months away from final, judicial deliberation. Securus refutes these claims, stating that legal matters regarding patents can take years and a big amount of money to dispute. Securus also is confident that they will win as they state they do not use any GTL technology in their video visitation technology.
And lastly, GTL states allegations again Securus Technologies honor in dealing with patent violations. Whereas, according to the Securus legal track record, they have worked on amicable partnerships with those that have violated Securus technology patients in the past allowing use of Securus technology at a cost.
Securus CEO Rick Smith has voiced his concern that GTL wants to get involved with such a drawn out and costly process. He is worried the GTL may bankrupt themselves over a dispute that Rick and Securus clearly state they are not in violation of.
