Securus Technologies is a company located in Dallas, Texas that specializes in communications systems in prisons, law enforcement agencies, and safety organizations. They currently supply communications facilities to over 1.2 million inmates and their families all over the North American continent.
The communications facilities include phone and email systems as well as video communications abilities. The video is a very popular method as families are saved travel time that they normally use, but with the video they can see how their loved one is doing without having to take the time and expense to travel.
Various payment methods are available such as direct billing to the family, advance payment, inmate payment and collect calls. Studies have clearly shown that when inmates have the ability to stay in touch with family members on a regular basis, their rehabilitation is vastly improving when they are eventually released from their incarceration.
Unfortunately, this robust system of connection inmate and family has also led to the facilitation of criminal activity such as plans to bring drugs, alcohol and weapons into the prisons. The planning of illicit activities outside of the prisons, threats against families, inmates, and prison employees also have occurred.
The technologies that Securus has embedded into the communications system such as voice recognition has been a very potent force against such activities. Such technologies as voice recognition allow the identification of voice imprints that can be matched over and over on both sides of the conversation and used as evidence in court. Plans and purposes are discovered and either blocked or evidence is gathered for court and conviction purposes.
Law enforcement and prison officials applaud the Securus Technologies technological superiority in such matters because when people are aware of the power of such devices they are reluctant to carry out criminal activities in the first place.

In his latter days, Eric Lefkofsky has committed saving people’s lives.

This is the reason why he is looking towards generating the cancer cure through cop-founding Tempus Company based in Chicago.
