Global Tel-Link has had a few inaccuracies associated with their inmate calling network that have been cleared up by Securus Technologies. The few inaccuracies has led to free calls to Louisiana customers for a limited time. The Public Utility Commission requires Securus to regulate inmate calls for the safety of the general public. They have successfully monitored thousands of calls including monitoring and surveillance. You get every minute that is guaranteed under your contract when Securus is acting as an inmate calling regulating provider. However, Securus is quickly growing as one of the largest inmate calling networks in the industry.
Now inmates have a access code that allows them to receive messages to a private line. Inmates love this feature because it allows them to take back their independence, get valuable information, and more. Best of all, family members can leave a message and tells inmates when and where to call them.
Are you tired of looking for an authorized inmate calling agent? Do you live in a rural area? Advanced Pay options allows you to pay your inmate calling forward and get call credits in advance. You never have to worry about not having enough minutes to talk to your loved ones in a correctional facility. You can go directly to the Securus website and pay in advance through a partnership with Jpay Services.

It makes sense that sometimes we worry about the wellbeing of our loved ones. Natural disasters such as tornadoes and earthquakes cause us to immediately think of those that we care about, especially if they are not currently near us at the time. For people living in the state of Louisiana these fears have arisen recently with the drastic increase in flooding there. While many of these people are able to take the necessary precautions to get to safety, others are not as fortunate, such as inmates who are currently being incarcerated and are unable to leave their designated locations. Securus Technologies though has a hopeful solution to this issue of communication, and for a period of time is giving free calling service to Louisiana customers in order for them to stay connected to family members.
Securus Technologies is a communications company mainly notable for their niche market of law enforcement locations. By providing mobile communication applications to inmates and their family members, Securus has produced an engaging and easy to use product that in a sense removes limitations of distance with inmates and brings families closer together. The application is free to download, is supported on both Android and Apple devices, and provides easy connection for quality video calling services.
The move by Securus Technologies to provide free calling service to their Louisiana clientele reveals the company not only as being devoted to their customer base but also as a humanitarian corporation who sees the importance of communication over the prospect of earning money.
Technology providers have earned the confidence and trust of citizens, to whom they provide service. Violation of this trust is hence a breach of the citizen’s right, and therefore firms that have the taxpayer’s backs are the ones that deserve that confidence. I highly support the move by Secures technologies to expose the wrongs committed against the public by the Global Tel Link commonly known as the GTL.
The GTL, having provided services to people for some time, is now in the spotlight for integrity issues. Customers deserve to get the best from the firms, and better still be kept aware of what an enterprise is undertaking; this strengthens the relationship between the companies and their service providers.
The wrongs committed against the public will be available in a series of press releases; this is not to shame the company but rather make things right for the generations to come. Some of the wrongs of GTL include: setting the call rates higher than the authorized rate; they acted on their initiative. Programming inmate’s calls to an additional fifteen or thirty-six seconds, which was unauthorized as well. Artificially inflating charges of their customers; which ultimately jeopardizes the relation between their clients upon their knowledge, and billing a single bill more than once.
Their deliberate misconduct has since, increased the taxpayer’s liability by an additional $ 1,243,000 in which was never their budget. Every citizen deserves to know the usage of their funds, misappropriation of their funds not being an option. We all need to take insurance and protect our funds, permitting its use for practical reasons not misappropriation by any citizen, be it a corporate or individual for their gain, but for our peril.
