Securus Technologies was established with the aim of offering public safety, law enforcement and correction agencies by providing quality communication services. Securus Technologies is dedicated to connecting firms by offering quick response and directing information to the right recipient.

 

The recent Louisiana floods have adverse effects on inmates and families. With the need for prisoners to communicate with family, the floods made regular visits impossible, and the call rates relatively went up compared to ordinary prisons call rates. Securus being committed to connecting inmates merged with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (LA DOC) in lowering call expenses by allowing each prisoner to make one free call daily. Prisoners need to connect with family in the hazardous flood conditions hence, the chief executive officer of Securus, Mr. Richard Smith, emphasizes on the need for Securus to contribute to the free phone calls.

 

The value of the free daily calls approximates $300,000 with an additional contribution of $50,000 from Securus donated to the inmate welfare fund to better the lives of Louisiana prisoners. The free calls program is scheduled to run through September 7th. Through the month, the Department of Corrections and Securus will enable the feature to allow free phone calls from inmates to family and friends.
