Communication is one of the many specialties that Securus Technologies offers. It is a key component to helping correctional facilities operate in a safe manner. Their cell phone package was designed to assist with the problem of contraband entering the premises. The system was approved by at least 5 Department of corrections facilities upon its inception. Securus eventually partnered with the Harris Corporation on cell phone technology. They offer correctional facilities the ability to prevent cell phones from connecting with mobile networks outside of the compound.
Securus Technologies eventually acquired JPay Incorporated. JPay Incorporated was doing good business throughout the United States as an electronic payment provider for correctional facilities.
