Securus Technologies has made an acquisition deal with GovPayNet recently. According to the management of Securus Technologies, they decided to purchase GovPayNet because the company would like to invest in other business ventures. They have seen the potential of acquiring the payment processing company and what Securus Technologies will do is that they will be improving the services provided by GovPayNet so that more people can be serviced. The target change in the system of GovPayNet and the usage of Securus Technologies’ latest computer system is seen to put the number of annual transactions to over 40 million. The public welcomed the acquisition of GovPayNet, hoping that the services provided will be better.



Securus Technologies is the leading communications provider in North American correctional facilities. The company was known because of their innovative products and services, and even the jail officers and the prisoners themselves are confident of the services being given by the company. For the prisoners, they are enjoying the vast network of gadgets that are being offered to them by the company. There is also a video calling technology available to be used by everyone, and experts are saying that the video calling technology from Securus Technologies might be the fastest in the world. The jail authorities are using the software provided by Securus Technologies to monitor the inmates better and prevent anyone from escaping the correctional facility.



With the acquisition of GovPayNet, several payments will now be processed by Securus Technologies. It includes simple traffic violations, parking tickets, taxes on properties and real estate, and even fines, fees, and bail. Government agencies which are using the service from GovPayNet welcomed their decision to be acquired by Securus Technologies. The government is well aware of the performance of Securus Technologies when it comes to public service, and they are optimistic that GovPayNet would further grow under the ownership of Securus Technologies.



Helping Avoid Confrontations in Jail with Securus Technologies

Each day that I show up for work at the local prison, I know I could be going home in an ambulance because the inmates would love to get their hands on me if they could. I spend forty hours a week in the jail, these inmates are there every single minute, and they are looking constantly for any weakness in the system they can use to their advantage. The only way to even the odds, me and my fellow officers must utilize ever resource we have at our disposal in an effort to keep the peace.


The first piece of business that we tend to each day is meeting with all the visitors who come to see the inmates. They are all told about how bringing anything into the jail could result in prison time if caught, and that they will be searched before they can meet with the inmates. We search the inmates after these sessions to make certain nothing was able to get into their hands. Even after all this, we do searches on the inmate cells and we even check their mail to make sure nothing can get into their hands.


When our prison was contacted by Securus Technologies to have our inmate call monitoring system upgraded, we now had and even more powerful resource in our hands. The company is based out of Dallas, has 1,000 employees, and all the staff is working very hard to make this world safer for us all.


In only a few days after the system was up and running, we heard inmates discussing how to get drugs into the visitor center, where they hid those drugs outside of their cells, and whether they were using or selling the drugs once they had them in their possession. We take instant action to eliminate these treats as soon as we get the alert.
