DALLAS, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Securus Technologies, Inc., a leading technology provider to the government services sector announced today the completion of its Inmate Tablet Device (SecureView Tablet). Securus continues to expand its technology offerings and has recently acquired both Archonix, a leading public safety and jail management software services company, and STOP, the nation's leading provider of GPS tracking devices for parolees.
Inmate tablets are secure, personalized devices that provide access to multiple applications. Current industry suppliers are primarily focused on generating revenue from inmates by up-selling media, such as music and video files. With SecureView Tablets, an expanded set of applications are made available for inmates to use. "In addition to providing access to music and media, we are also focused on the delivery of constructive applications that benefit the inmates on a long-term basis. The Secure-Jobs Application is an example of content that will benefit inmates as they transition back into society. This application was created specifically for inmate tablets by Jobview—a company that has been focused on identifying employment opportunities for inmates for over 10 years," said Luke Keiser, Securus' Director of Strategic Marketing and New Business Development.
"As superintendent of a large regional jail, I'm always looking to provide cutting-edge technology, not only for jail operations, but for the betterment of inmate rehabilitation and safety. With the SecureView Tablet, I can accomplish all of these objectives," said Ted Hull, Superintendent of Northern Neck Regional Jail.
Russell Roberts, Vice President of Marketing at Securus stated, "Our focus is to continue to build our high-tech set of products and inmate services for the corrections and law enforcement sectors. Our tablet underscores our continued commitment to lead our industry in creating technology that enhances public safety and supports secure communications."
