Securus Technologies is not your typical technology company. They reach out to a select group of people that other businesses do not want to help or that they often overlook when they are determining who their potential clientele may be. How do they do that? They provide them with what many people can’t or won’t the opportunity to see and speak to their families so the distance between them does not seem so far away. Especially during the Christmas holiday season, this company wants to give inmates and their families a gift that they will never forget: the gift of each other.
After viewing a video about how Securus brings Christmas to life by creating memories for inmates and their families, I am truly touched by what they do for them. To compare it to other forms of modern technology, it is like Skype or Facetime for those that are serving time. The video I viewed truly touched my heart. When the video starts, a little boy is waiting for his dad to join him on the video recording, so he can watch him unwrap his gifts.
It started off with a little boy and his dad exchanging Christmas greetings to each other and then his dad tells him to go open his gifts. During what is the most joyous time of the year, this company is doing all that they can to bring joy to inmates and their families. When Securus is not busy making inmates holidays brighter, they do their best year round to meet the one-of-a-kind needs of the corrections and law enforcement communities.
