I am a police officer in the community where I grew up, and I run into people every day who know me. They may find my job objectionable on some level, but they also know I will do my best to help them. I have been helping as much as possible, and I often hand out information on Securus where I can. This article explains why I think Securus is so important for families of incarcerated criminals.
#1: I Learned About Securus Early
I learned about Securus at the police academy. I was not aware that you could not call a jail by yourself. We always made person visits to the jail for friends, but the phone calls are much more protected. Securus will route calls for people in my community, and I teach citizens how it works every day.
#2: You Need A Securus Account
It is quite fortunate that signing up for a Securus account is not difficult. I have helped multiple people sign up for accounts, and they have placed calls to the jail using the account information they were given.
#3: Video Calling Helped Disabled And Distant Relatives
I was quite impressed with video calling at Securus because it helps disabled and distant family. I have met several people who cannot come to the jail for a variety of reasons, but they may use the app on their phone to place a video call to the jail.
My role as a police officer brings me close to Securus every day. I believe in their service, and I am happy to share it with anyone who wants to learn.
