Securus Technologies, a major national provider of justice technology will be partnering with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections to provide one free phone call per day for state inmates who have loved ones adversely affected by the recent flooding. This temporary service was scheduled to last until today. This is a major part of Securus Technologies financial contribution to the effort since it is estimated to cost them about $300,000 for its estimated 250,000 free calls. This is a very generous move by the company and will be costing them a lot. But these are not the online cash gifts that the company is making to help.
Richard Smith, CEO of Securus Technologies, said his company did this motivated by a desire to reduce stress among inmates and their families during this trying time. Phone services are only one of the many services it provides. It provides man, including emergency response, incident management, public information, investigation, communication, information management, inmate self-service, and monitoring services.
