Securus Soars With Rick Smith

The CEO of Securus Technologies, Rick Smith, is making waves within the telecommunications industry thanks to his eye for innovation and technological advances. It is thanks to him that Securus has added a video chat feature into their services for inmates and prisons. This is considered revolutionary for that industry and many people are taking about it.

Mr. Smith came up with idea when he realized that of the inmate’s family members are unable to make a long drive up to the facility in time for the limited visitation hours. The option for video chat changes that and it gives inmates a better opportunity to visit with their families and people outside of the prison. This has led to a better outlook from the inmates and it has improved their positivity and mood. It has also proved to save the prison’s a lot of money. Additionally, is has made the prisons safer because there are less people coming in and out. Mr. Smith is constantly on the lookout for new innovative technologies, and his next project is to implement biometric technologies into their business plan. This will allow the prison to more easily identify the inmates. This will lead to better management of the inmates and allow them to more efficiently increase the number of inmates they can hold.

Dallas-based inmate communication giant Securus introduces video visitation for family

Whether the father or mother is incarcerated or not, one still needs parental connection. Recent research shows that children and parents can have a positive influence on each other when they have regular contact. If a person is incarcerated, this connection is cut. The results of this lost connection are disastrous. Most inmates are considered unstable, behavior-wise. Affording them every stabilizing mechanism is an important step. There is no better emotional stabilizer than loving kids.

I always thought that Securus was a standout company, but little did I expect them to show such strong, innovative clout in the communication sector. I believe that this is by far the best thing that can happen to a child whose father has been incarcerated. For example, it is not like the father is incarcerated forever, he will need to one day come back to his family. Keeping tables with his family is paramount. He can watch his kids grow, help them adjust to difficulties in life, celebrate anniversaries with them and so on.

Kids find technology fun. The video visitation program is much better compared to calls. Children can see who they are talking to and can exchange information directly. Unlike calls, where children are distracted and lose interest, there is an emotional connection between the inmate and the child. A deeper connection that involves activities and so on. In a video visitation, it is possible to have more than one family member present, family reunions and get-togethers can help the child feel loved and cared for.

On the other hand, parents can take the challenge to be better people and to reform when they see what they are missing outside prison walls. There are over 2 million people behind bars. They have family and children who look up to them. It is a challenge to every inmate to rehabilitate and join his or her family.

Securus Technologies is a Dallas-based inmate communication solution provider. It was formed in 1986 and currently serves over 2600 prison facilities in the country. It has federal ad prison service contracts to offer communication, intelligence and crime dynamics in the country.

Secures is leading in the adoption of technology, innovative solutions, and overall efficiency.

Kids and family can now interact and make their parents or relatives feel loved and wanted. They can encourage offenders to be responsible and grow out of their misdemeanors.
