Securus Technologies is a leading provider of technology solutions for the criminal and civil justice sectors. This is why it was no shock to me when I came across a report from PR newswire that they released the wrongdoings of their competitor, Global Tel Link. This report helps to provide transparency to the business practices being performed by GTL and only strengthened my confidence in the services and technologies offered by Securus. Securus America has been providing top of the line technologies to help connect inmates with loved ones for decades and have been doing it honestly. They have had great success in the industry because they are passionate about helping connect people when it matters most, not about overcharging or deceiving their customers to make a profit. The report released by Securus is the first in what will be a series of articles outlining the wrongdoings and invasive business practices of GTL that have cost Louisiana taxpayers over a million dollars.
