A leading company in the inmate communications department is called Securus Technologies, and they’re talking about the wrong doings of a company called Global Tel Link (GTL). Securus Technologies is a well-known company that offers services for the incarcerated inmates allowing them to stay in contact with their friends and loved ones. They understand how important it is to stay in contact and have that communication. They strive to ensure that business is always professional and that the services provided are honest and built upon ethics. GTL, however, is a company that has violated the breach of integrity. Their computer systems were programmed to added time to each phone call, in return charging more for the call that it should have. Not only that, but they have added extra phone calls to the bill instead of just billing for one call. There is over one million dollars extra that they have charged the tax payers throughout their years of service.
Rick Smith, who is the CEO of Securus Technologies, is voicing the opinions of the matter in a series of press releases. He has worked for the industry for many years, and is disappointed and offended that GTL thinks they can get away with these fraudulent charges. Even though some of them are old and it’s been going on for a long time, there are other issues at hand that need to be addressed as well.
Securus Technologies have been providing services to incarcerated inmates for many years, and values their work in the industry to be honest and ethical. They are responsible for services covering North America with over one million inmates and over 3,000 public safety officials. They take great pride in striving to achieve the best possible services for the public and will continue to do so for many years to come.
