Securus is putting family first when it comes to their technology. They are indeed the leading company when it comes to providing communication technology within jails. However, they have just put all of their company ambitions to the side, and they are now focusing on family. This specifically pertains to families within Louisiana.
Louisiana has recently suffered from severe weather. This has caused many people to die. Many homes have been lost and many families have been torn a part. This has greatly affected inmates in all prisons within Louisiana. Securus has issued permission for every inmate to make one phone call each day of the week. Securus believes inmates should have the same rights as everyone else when it comes to family. This means they should be able to contact their family members when bad weather destroys the area.
All of the officials that run the state of Louisiana are very happy with this decision. They, too, try to find ways to help inmates better connect with their family members. These officials believe there is no other better way to connect with their family members than through a free phone call.
Many inmates have been interviewed concerning this situation. All of these inmates are very happy that Securus is letting them make a free phone call each day. Many inmates gave their interview in tears because they were able to know their children were okay. There are also rumors going around that Securus is going to talk to officials in various states to let inmates make a phone call each day during bad weather. Securus believes jails will be more calm and filled with less anxiety when the inmates are able to make a phone call for free everyday. This also bridges a better gap between inmates and the judicial system.
