Securus Technologies is a leading provider of inmate services in the United States. The company offers other services such as information management, government information management, biometric analysis, communication and tracking services. The company has grown extensively in other areas of the world but has its headquarters in Atlanta Georgia. Securus Technologies avails its services to approximately more than 2,600 correction facilities in close to 45 states. In April 2015, the company announced that it had signed to an agreement to acquire JPay. The acquisition has seen Securus become one of the fastest growing company in the correction facilities. The company also received an accreditation from Better Business Bureau.
According to recent press release information, Securus Technologies has strived to expose misconducts of its competitor company GTL. GTL discreetly and intentionally tampered with telephones, the act saw an increase in call rates and callers paying more than the required amount. The act is a gross misconduct and totally inexcusable. The company further inflated its charges by increasing the calling rates above standard rates required by the law. The above information is attested by the fact that the firm made more than one million in profits through the illegal practices.
I find that the illegal practices by GTL shows nothing but greed, fraud, and corruption within the company. GTL has participated in various misconducts by trying to get back to other businesses and releasing wrong information. The company has now gone to limelight again after overcharging its customers by extreme amounts. Apart from the charging people of their cash, the company is milking people of their money. People that make calls in the correction facility are guys like you and me that want to get to talk with their friends and family. All we can say about the process that it is shameful of the kind of misconduct experienced.
