SECURUS TECHNOLOGIES: REDEEMING THE PRISON SYSTEMS
The prison system serves the role of housing and rehabilitation of criminals before they are released back to the society. Insufficient correctional officers and overcrowding in the prisons have made it hard for the jail system to perform its critical role in the society. Due to this, crime among prisoners is on the rise, and this hugely undermines the purpose of the prison system. Securus Technologies is a company that uses modern technology to provide digital solutions to the various challenges facing the prison systems.
Secures technologies first started a communication company. It was instrumental in facilitating communications between prisoners and their families on the outside. From its inception, prison systems in the United States of America were barely functioning. Securus Company, therefore, had to start offering solutions to the challenges facing prisons. With continuous advancements in technology, digitized applications set to perform precise tasks seemed to be the great solution to these problems.
Securus Technologies and Jpay markets
First and foremost, Securus Technologies acquired JPay markets company. Jpay markets was a company that was first in introducing modern technology in the prison system. Electronic payments, emails, and education- related applications had transformed the prison systems and made operations in the correctional space smooth. Through this acquisition, Securus technologies developed digitized platforms such as jail management systems, wireless containment solutions, parolee monitoring and inmate healthcare monitoring systems.
The introduction of modern technology to the prison systems
The incorporation of advanced technology in the jail system has proved to be of great help. Crime among prisoners has greatly reduced. Furthermore, correctional officers can work efficiently. The inmate health care monitoring software has enabled prisoners to get medical attention as soon as they are needed. Education in prison has also been possible through this.
Efficiency in the prison system is necessary. The smooth operation of the prison system makes it possible for them to perform its vital role in the society. Also, the living standard of prisoners in the United States of America has been significantly improved.
