The following are two of the most moving testimonials that I found noteworthy to highlight:
- One of their clients highlighted that Information from phone calls helped them arrest corrupt staff who introduced contraband to prisons. The information from recordings also helped them in monitoring prisoners involved in illegal activities such as drug abuse/trafficking, and in solving cases by listening in on calls.
- Another client stated that the investigative tools provided by Securus enabled them to launch investigations on occurrences of unfair treatment or likely threats. Tools such as the Location Based service (LBS) provide geographical information of the physical location of where calls are going, and have particularly assisted them in monitoring prison escapes, sneaking in of contraband, and plot to obstruct evidence.
It is not only positive comments from clients that motivate Securus do what they do best but also their team’s dedication.
