Securus Technologies is located in Dallas in Texas with its headquarters at the same location. The company serves 2600 corrections, public safety agencies, more than 1000000 inmates and law enforcement agencies. The technology and different services provided by the company are meant for communications, investigation, incident management, public information and emergency response. Securus also serves the society by keeping people away from the crimes committed by the inmates in the prisons. Recently Securus acquired Jpay, a company providing technology to the correction facilities and prisons. JPay is a famous, well-established company and is among the companies leading in serving the prisons with digitalized payments. JPay makes communication between the inmates and their families possible via means such as emails.
The transaction will benefit Securus in many ways because JPay had a good reputation and served over 33 state prisons. The deal will widen the products range of Securus Technologies making them have the suitable technology to run a modern prison. Rick is excited about the transaction as it will also improve the quality of their services and products. Rick Smith received emails and letters from individuals who were showing their appreciation for the great work Securus has done for the society. The gesture was received with gratitude and Rick replied to the emails and letters reassuring the people that Securus will continue to keep them safe and happy.
