The Corrections Corporation of America approved the five (5) year contract with Securus Technologies because of their long history of success with Securus’ inmate calling systems. “Working together with CCA for over 18 years has provided us with the knowledge to proactively anticipate their needs and provide cutting-edge products to serve those needs.
