We have seen a worldview shift in how people view companies. In the current America, corporations are viewed as the enemy. They are seen as these awful monsters who Delight in making the poor sink down in poverty. This is not true of those who believe in social entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurs believe in ending evil in all its forms. They understand they cannot do everything. However, they all know they can do something. One company who has taken this the heart is Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies won my respect when I realized that not only are they an American based business, but they are the leading provider in products that make inmates more safe in correctional facilities.
Ever since 4,400 Correctional Facilities began using Securus Technologies, we have seen a rapid decline in crimes committed between inmates. This is because Securus Technologies has created products that allow them to monitor inmate activity and then immediately begin investigating should that inmate be looking to commit a crime.
Another way that Securus Technologies has made prisons more safe for the inmates is by implementing a system that allows them to detect and control contraband phones. The reason for Securus Technologies doing this is because it prevents inmates from planning out attacks with one another and against one another.
As Securus Technologies beginning to take the lead, other corporations wanted to jump on board. One such Corporation came on in July 2016, and that was the Harris Corporation. Working together with Securus Technologies, Harris Corporation created a new product called Cell Defender. Prisoners across North America report that this new technology alone has made them feel twice as safe and more secure when they are in their cells.
Securus Technologies has taken an evil in this world and turned it into everyone’s good.
