Securus Technologies really brought my family together this Thanksgiving. My brother was thrown into federal prison because of marijuana charges a couple of years ago. And it’s totally crazy because marijuana is now becoming legal in many states across the country. We are hoping to get his conviction vacated in light of all of this.
That’s all beside the point. The point is that my children miss my brother and so do I. It is always hard around the holidays because we know that he is locked behind bars. He is housed all the way across the state and it makes it very difficult for us to visit him. That’s when Securus saved the day for us.
This benevolent company runs this incredibly genius technology. All I do is log into their website, request a video visitation time, and then log back in when it’s time. My brother pops up on the other side with his face filling the screen.
We video chatting with him on a tablet this year. It’s about as close is he will get to a family gathering for quite some time, and I am grateful for this technology.
I just want to start to spread the word. Securus has been nothing but good to us. They are always interested in whether we are happy with our services or not. And if there are any technical issues, calling into their customer service center is lightning quick. I’ve read bad reviews of other prison telecommunications companies. I’m hoping Securus becomes the country’s leading provider very soon.
