Securus Technologies has long had a reputation for being one of the world’s greatest institutions concerned with public safety. It thinks of itself as a justice technology solutions company for both criminal and civil disputes but Securus Technologies also has expert capability in the areas of monitoring, corrections and also investigative procedure. Recently Securus Technologies issued a series of reports and other materials that definitively show Global Tel Link(GTL) behaved unethically by performing breaches of integrity and other wrongdoings.
The Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies made a statement following the release of the reports. In it he publicly affirmed his love and support for all those who work in the corrections industry including law enforcement, their families, and even inmates. He expressed immense frustration with GTL’s recent unethical behavior because their actions hurt the entire industry by lowering the bar of integrity that people have come to expect from professionals in the corrections industry. He wishes for all concerned to be aware that he cares about more than just making money and that he wishes to serve the community and especially Securus Technologies customers who have put their faith in him.
As a result of GTL’s actions, Securus Technologies will conduct a review of all their reported wrongdoings over the coming months with the hopes that it can shame them into behaving better. In its preliminary review, Securus Technologies found evidence that GTL programmed clocks in their telephone systems to add time to calls so that they could fraudulently earn more profit from inmates. It also increased the rate per minute of phone calls in violation of industry wide rate caps without permission from authorities. Furthermore, it was found that there was no reasonable excuse for GTL’s behavior.
