Securus Technologies is a company that is clearing out the bad guys with their criminal justice technology solutions. Securus Technologies has its headquarters in Dallas Texas, and they are able to serve correction agencies. Securus Technologies works with over 3450 public safety entities. Securus Technologies is a company that is like no other, because they are able to work with incident management, public information, and investigation.
Recently Securus Technologies had shed the light on Global Tel Link. Global Tel Link is a company that does telephonic communication for many correctional facilities in the area of Louisiana. The press release showed that Global Tel Link was doing things that were very illegal to different correctional facilities. Global Tel Link was found to have programed clocks in the telephones in these different institutions to add between 15 and 36 seconds to the duration of each call. Global Tel Link also programmed their different telephones in order to charge a higher rate on calls.
The infractions that were carried out Global Tel Link have cost the taxpayers of the state of Louisiana around $1,243,000. This amount is staggering, but in reality they have been dealing treacherously with these different agencies ever since 1998. It is sad to see that a company that is supposed to be doing things that increase justice will do anything to get away with making a little bit more money. In my opinion, the company should be sued, and the taxpayers should be reimbursed for the amount of money that they have payed out to the correctional facilities and their systems. If these companies were honest and correctly charge these agencies, then they still would have received a profit, and they would not have had to go through the embarrassment of this investigation. Securus Technologies did their job right!
