When tragedy strikes, family and friends of the victims are anxious and will want to communicate consistently. The Securus Technologies has realized the importance of maintaining communication between the inmates in Louisiana State Prison and their loved ones. This is as a result of the severe floods being experienced in Louisiana.
In conjunction with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (LADOC), Securus will give each inmate one free call per day for seven days. It is estimated that Securus will connect more than 250,000 calls in the seven days valued at approximately $300,000. Other than the free calls, the leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions will contribute $50,000 to the inmate welfare fund at Louisiana Department of Correction.
