Securus Technologies has very intricate operating procedures available to assist corrections facilities. Cell phone contraband was a high priority for many different detainee agencies. Securus implemented a system that was approved by five corrections agencies. They partnered with Harris Corporation on Cell Defender technology. This operation was focused on preventing cell phones on the inside from connecting to mobile networks on the outside of the detainee facilities.
JPay was an important acquisition to the Securus company foundation. JPay specializes in electronic payments, email and entertainment for correctional facilities. Securus saw this as an excellent opportunity to work with the company that had its own niche within a similar market. JPay has contracts with 33 different state prisons throughout the United States. The move helps Securus open new opportunity for JPay as well as its own company.
Leaders at Securus Technologies plan to allow JPay to continue with its current business model. They will monitor from afar and use JPay as a subsidiary to show them different avenues of acquiring clients within the corrections technologies industry.
