Securus Technologies, Inc., a leader in technology solutions for civil, criminal justice, investigation, public safety, corrections and monitoring announced that it will release reports that will confirm wrongdoings and breach of integrity by Global Tel Link. The CEO of Securus Technologies affirmed recently that Securus respects the rules of operation in the industry in serving law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities, inmates and their family members. Securus aims to outline various wrongdoings by GTL in the next six months to shame what Securus refers as lack of integrity.
For example, when GTL served Louisiana Department of Corrections with telecom services to many of their inmates, an investigation by the Louisiana PSC on GTL actions found that GTL programmed the clocks to add either 15 or 36 seconds in each call which is both unlawful and unauthorized. GTL programmed the telephones to rate calls based on higher rates and not based on PSC rate caps. GTL use the add-on programs which is considered most problematic.
Securus Technologies serves thousands of law enforcement agencies and correctional facilities to offer secure, powerful and simple technology solutions to promote accessibility and effectiveness. Securus Technologies has now turned to acquire JPay Inc. JPay Inc. is a market leader in digital payments systems, email services and various entertainment and educational related apps in various correctional facilities. According to the Rick Smith, JPay will bring its innovative team to Securus Technologies and together the companies will forge forward for a continued success.
The deal will help Securus Technologies to offer anything software-based needed by correctional agencies to smoothen their operations and connect inmates with their families. JPay’s CEO, Ryan Shapiro emphasized that the company always wanted to expand it portfolio and services it offers to its clients and the deal with Securus will provided the company with the opportunity to do so.
