There are all sorts of ways to serve the criminal justice system. Just take a look at a company called Securus Technologies. This awesome company provides telephone and telecommunications services to prisons and jails through exclusive government contracts. If you have ever watched a documentary concerning a criminal, like Making A Murder, you have probably listened to some recorded phone calls into the prison. Those phone calls are serviced by companies like Securus. View the company profile on Linkedin.com.
But Securus goes above and beyond. They have this technology team that keeps updating their software and offering law enforcement different tools in order to make our community safer. They have come up with this crazy new software that allows law enforcement officials to search through an entire database of recorded phone calls. All they need to do is get the vocal signature of one person and the algorithm goes ahead and searches for every phone call that person ever made.
And the coolest thing about this company is that they do not take advantage of their customers. Their customers are the prisoners and they are literally locked up behind bars. Businesswise, it is like shooting fish in a barrel. They could choose to charge whatever they want but they keep the rates reasonable and keep offering new technologies to prisoners and their families.
They recently acquired a company named JPaythat is a leader in the telecommunications industry. This acquisition should allow prisoners more access to technology while keeping prices for the technology very reasonable. And it is customer service like this that has kept Securus at an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
But the BBB recently bestowed accreditation on Securus. Accreditation is only given to companies that show high marks for integrity, trustworthiness, transparency, a commitment to privacy, and a commitment to honoring promises.
