Securus Technologies has ascended to another level in their criminal justice technology solutions. Securus Technologies is a 30 year old company with its main headquarters in Dallas Texas. They specialize in inmate and prison communication technology. In late December, 2015, Securus released an upgraded software platform to its already state of the art analytical system, to track “Big Data.” The upgrade is called THREADS 3.1. Full story covered by PR newswire.
One major highlight to the advanced THREADS 3.1 operating system, is the direct integration between THREADS 3.1 and other Securus products, specifically SCP, or Secure Call Platform. SCP is a call management system that provides instant facility, on-site control on all inmate communications and inmate activities, that can assist in ongoing investigations of suspicious activity.
The relevance of this technology can be appreciated by reading the testimonials on the Securus America website, https://securustech.net/videovisitation. One testimonial describes the elimination of a long standing criminal organization, smuggling drugs into the prison facility by using SCP.
The ability of THREADS 3.1 to listen to Secure Call Platform calls and to receive guided real-time analysis and context sensitive reports, allows investigators to recognize call pattern habits of certain inmates, that can link criminal activity inside and outside the prison’s walls. SCP, one of the industries best, most innovative tool, just got better.
Apart from the advantages to law enforcement, Securus Technologies, helps connect inmates and their loved ones through their Video Visitation options. This amazing technology comes in 2 forms, both described to save time waiting in long lines at the prison facility.

First is the On-site Video Visitation option which is very similar to a normal visitation where the inmate and the family member sit on opposite sides of the glass, but in this case, the interaction is through video at the prison. The benefit is that a time is scheduled in advance and wait time is eliminated.
Secondly, Securus offers the option for Video Visitation from the comfort of the family’s home. The obvious advantages to this process is that the family members don’t have to drive to the prison, saving time and money. One additional plus is that this process saves the inmate’s family the exposure to the negative aspects of prison, which may be desirable, especially when children are involved.
Securus Technologies is already servicing more than 3000 facilities and 1.2 million inmates and their families across North America. Their commitment is to serve, connect and make our world a safer place to live.
