Securus Strives to Increase Productivity in Prisons and Jails

Securus Technologies, a leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions, is now helping prison inmates and corrections officers by automating prison forms and grievance applications to a paperless digital form. Securus is committed to keeping their customers updated with the latest and most effective technologies available.

How Securus is using ConnectUS to save time and money

In the prison system, time not only means money, it means security and safety. When correctional officers have more time to dedicate to security, training, and inmate management, prisons and jails are safer for both guards and inmates. By implementing its Inmate Forms and Grievance application on ConnectUs, Securus does away with the need to use time-consuming paper forms for grievances, medical forms, sign-up and other forms that once had to be printed, and handed out. Prison employees and correctional officers often spend a great deal of time printing, copying, distributing, and collecting paper forms. The ConnectUs system does away with this outdated method of processing prison forms.

It’s a win-win for everyone

While most people don’t consider what goes on behind prison walls to be of much relevance, a safer and more effective prison is a win-win for everyone. Better run and more efficient paperwork and forms handling is a win not just for prison staff but for taxpayers and inmates as well. With this new application by Securus, inmates can receive custom forms that can be created for any type of inmate request. Inmates can also view the status of forms and grievances and accept them or us the system to file appeals. The new system is apparently making a real difference. Securus processes an average of 13.8 forms per inmate per month saving a lot of time and money that can be dedicated to other issues and programs. ConnectUs does not stop there. With a lot of other features such as inmate location and a digital inmate bulletin board, correctional officers are able to communicate with inmates more efficiently allowing for smoother operations between staff and inmates.
