Communication is one of the most important facets of life for those who have been incarcerated in the United States and Mexico.

These great devices allow inmates to securely make outbound calls and so much more. They are one of the most popular providers of inmate phone calls and communication technology for the criminal justice system and that expertise allows for all involved from guards to inmates to live in a secure and safe manner. 

In the United States and Mexico the use of the BBB-accredited Securus devices is very common, and has grown over the 28 years that they have been providing their inmate communication services. As technology has grown, so has the level of product. These intelligent communications devices are not just phones but inmate tablets, kiosks that provide video visitation, and “S-Phones”. These devices are all set up with the highest levels of security in mind, allowing for communication but protecting those incarcerated as well as those working in the prisons. The greatest goal of the prison system is to provide rehabilitation opportunities and allow inmates to return to society as productive and law abiding members. Having access to reliable communication devices helps accomplish this by allowing inmates to seek job opportunities as their release date comes closer and being involved in society allows people to have hope in a better life in the future. 

These intelligent devices also allow inmates a higher level of access to educational services. Both high school and college level programs are more readily available for inmates through the wonder of Securus technological devices. With a higher level of education all people develop a higher threshold of potential accomplishment and earning power. Past mistakes can be put in the rearview mirror and an inmate will have a higher level of hope for the prospects of their future. There are also better communication opportunities for meaningful communication with loved ones provided through high tech video tablets and kiosks. This type of contact with those you love will allow an inmate to remember the good things that are waiting for them on the outside. This will lead to better behavior and less violence and rule breaking within the system. This video visitation service can be accessed from anywhere by downloading the app and connecting the software to it. The app is available on the App Store as well as Google Play.

Securus devices make the day to day operations of a prison run smoother as well. An inmate can participate in religious services and activities more easily using these devices which is a positive for any person. They also are able to take care of commissary orders and make sure that their immediate needs are being taken care of. They even provide some level of entertainment options for prisoners which have the benefit of making the whole environment behind bars safer for all people involved. 

In the past to be incarcerated was a method of punishment alone, but law enforcement and corrections has become much more progressive in recent years and there is a focus on human treatment and rehabilitation. The majority of inmates are going to eventually be released back into society. The more learning options and methods to improve their lives available will lead to a better assimilation and more success in getting out of the prison system once and for all. Securus technological devices are a vital piece of this hope in prisons all over North America.
