Securus is an inmate communications company that has been in business for many years. This organization provides video call technology and communications systems for prisons and law enforcement agencies all over the country. Recently, I just found out that this company has been advocating for fair and decent practices within their industry.
I never knew this but when it comes to inmate communications, it is very easy to rip-off prisoners and their families. Yes, it is true that video calls provide a fairly easy way for inmates to call their families; but some companies charge outstanding rates for this service.
The fact is that inmate calls only work because they are important for the prison industry as a whole. I know from personal experience that when inmates stay connected with their loved ones; they often serve out their sentences with the least amount of problems.
Ultimately, the reason why Securus offers inmate calls is to help to reduce the recidivism rate for inmates. The company wants prisoners to stay out of jail once they leave.
Other companies who offer communications systems for prisoners agree with Securus. They make it a point to charge fair and reasonable rates for their service. I am glad to see the industry as a whole come together on this issue. Ultimately, Securus is encouraging various companies to remain ethical for the sake of their industry as a whole; and everyone agrees with what they have to say.
