In the recent past, Securus Technologies provided each inmate at LA DOC facility a free call each day. I believe that this move helped the inmates to stay connected with their family members and friends that had been affected by the recent floods in Louisiana. Watch more on youtube.com. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, said that the flooding in Louisiana was severe, thus the need to take extraordinary measures to maintain communications between inmates and their loved ones. It is my hope that this strategy helped in reducing stress and anxiety of inmates and their families. Richard went on to state that the value of free calls that Securus would be connecting for free would be approximately $300,000. I contend that the cash contribution of $50,000 donated by Securus to the inmate welfare fund assisted inmates at the Louisiana Department of Corrections.

Over the years, Securus has received formal accreditation and the highest rating of A+. The senior vice president of operations at Securus, Danny de Hoyos, posited that accreditation is voluntary and that the company has worked together with the BBB to meet various standards. These standards are building trust, honoring promises, being transparent, telling the truth, advertising honestly and safeguarding privacy. The others are embodying integrity and being responsive. He went on to contend that by virtue of having accreditation, the BBB had verified, agreed and confirmed that Securus was the biggest facility provider. I believe that that it has the largest team of more than 1,300 associations nationwide.
