Securus Technologies Helps Fight Crime and Keep the Public Safe
Press Release Apr 28, 2010
Dallas, TX —April 28, 2010. Securus Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of inmate communications services and offender and case management software design, continues to use its industry leading experience and technology to aid law enforcement in fighting crime and prosecuting criminals. Securus’ call management platforms have a long history of helping to solve and prevent crimes and have been called an essential tool for law enforcement to use in investigating criminal activities and protecting the public.
Securus Technologies provides secure calling platforms to more correctional facilities in the United States than any other inmate telephone provider. With 67 patents awarded and 55 additional patent filings pending, Securus leads the industry in developing and introducing innovative and highly advanced technology to identify criminal activities, thwart crime perpetrated by inmates within correctional facilities, and prosecute criminals. The company’s systems have helped families stay connected while still providing the general public with high levels of security.
Master Police Detective Michael Wachsmuth, a Tactical Field Officer working with the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms division of the Federal Justice Department stated, “I estimate that I request phone records for eight out of every ten subjects I investigate, and of the 100 subjects that I have helped convict over the past four years, probably half of those were because of telephone recordings provided by the Securus platform. Securus has been so successful in assisting with my cases that the US Attorney’s Office has asked me to get inmate calls for all cases.”
It is estimated that Securus’ platforms and patents help prevent more crime each year than that offered by any other inmate telephone provider. The company’s technology has been credited with preventing all types of crime, including several instances where it has been instrumental in preventing murders.
