Securus has such a strong ties to the communities that it serves that it started a Correctional Officer Memorial Fund. The fund was for the families of non-administrative correctional officers who had lost their life while serving at a facility that Securus is involved in.

The devices and solutions that Securus provides to its clients were discussed in a recent article by PR Newswire. The article talked about how thousands of devices that Securus had recently developed and sent out to inmate facilities would be used for everything from providing better access to law libraries and more efficiently filing grievance reports to allowing commissary ordering and providing inmates to job search tools as their release from prison nears. The article quoted the CEO of Securus, Rick Smith. Smith said that their goal in these new devices was to make prison more rehabilitative so that prisoners would be less likely to return.
Rick Smith also explained a little bit about the new devices that they had sent out to their facilities. He referred to all of the devices as intelligent communications devices. This includes some sophisticated tablets for inmate use and video visitation kiosks where inmates can video chat with their loved ones. Download the Google app here for your Android devices. Contact customer service reps at Securus if you have issues connecting the service to the technology.
All of the devices have very high security levels to make it impossible for the device to be used for any purpose other that what it was specifically designed for. With 84 thousand devices sent out, Securus is expecting very exciting results ahead.
