Securus Technologies Is Making Next Week Joyful

Securus Technologies new video displays the heart they have to all humanity. Observing this jailed father speak to his son face to face makes my heart melt. The son is seen jumping up and down with joy. This joy does not come from presents. This joy comes from the boy being able to talk to his jailed father face to face. The boy virtually walks his father through the home, and he is able to show him all the presents under the tree. The father is happy to watch his son open his presents in complete joy.


Securus Technologies has created a system where children and family members can easily speak with their incarcerated loved ones. This video chat system is equipped with the top of the line hardware and software. However, it is very easy to use. The child or family member can easily create an online account with Securus Technologies. The account can be accessed anytime, and it comes with the hardware needed to connect with the jailed family member. Best of all, creating an online account is completely free. Those incarcerated are also able to create a free account. Using this service is as easy as making a traditional jail phone call.


Securus Technologies is doing a lot more than just making products for those incarcerated. This company has also created many products to help law enforcement officials within all communities. Such products include systems like their detective programming application. This application has been created to be used by both detectives and prison employees. This application easily keeps track of prison visitors visiting more than one person on a weekly basis. This application will report if the visitor(s) have been convicted of a crime in the best. Even better, this application will report if these individuals being visited were all responsible for the same or a similar crime.


The prisons that have already accepted this technology believe it is saving lives. This application has accounted for more charges against hundreds of inmates. It has also been responsible for the arrest of hundreds of prison visitors. Lives are believed to be being saved because more and more dangerous people are being pulled off the street. Several months from now, Securus Technologies believes majority of United States prisons will have access to this application. Securus Technologies believes this will cause communities to have a lower crime rate in a quick amount of time.

Securus Experiences 65,000 Downloads of New Video App

Securus Technologies, known for the tech solutions it provides to correctional markets, recently experienced unprecedented downloads of its video conferencing application for mobile platforms. Through Android marketplaces, Video Visit, Securus’ mobile app, was downloaded on Google Play more than 60,000 times in the past six months. Through Apple’s App Store, which launched in early February, had more than 5,000 downloads.

In a statement made by Russel Roberts, Securus Technologies’ Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, the Video Visitation app is there to not only to connect inmates with family through a convenient platform, but also to provide a service thatfile correctional facilities find invaluable. Prior to the technological ability that made video chatting a possibility between inmates and the people in their lives, families of inmates would have to meet the strict time constraints of correctional facilities that require the factoring of money and travel into their lives, making the traditional visitation process burdensome. With video visitation inmates can make calls to family in a manner that maximizes convenience to everyone involved.

Video Visit makes it so mobile devices can connect users to their family serving sentences in jails and prisons across North America. Through iOS devices like the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and mobile phones and tablets running on Android operating systems, family can communicate with their loved ones regardless of where they are, helping to maintain family cohesion until an inmate is released back into the general population in a way that surpasses the limitation of traditional inmate phone calls.

This remote visitation allows users to not only establish video communication, but coordinate with other features of their mobile devices, allowing for sync with calendars, establish notifications to coincide with video calls, and establish communications through Wi-Fi or online connections through their mobile carrier to optimize video quality. All of this is achievable without the need of a conventional desktop computer or any connecting accessories.

Securus Technologies is based in Dallas, Texas, where it provides services and products to thousands of correctional facilities across North America, impacting the lives of more than a million inmates who take advantage of their at-home visitation technologies in order to communicate with loved ones.

Through Securus, correctional facilities can also communicate with emergency services to collect and distribute public information and manage incidents. They even assist in the processing of investigation through biometric technologies, helping law enforcement police prison populations while keeping surrounding communities safer.

Securus often get confused for Securus America, or the popular product SECURUS. Neither of these have any affiliation with Securus Technologies.
