Leading provider of domestic and illegitimate justice technology services meant for public safety inquiry and inmate monitoring, Securus recently made it public that it had legally fortified its call rates. The matter had been brought before the United State Court of Appeals. The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) wanted to impose rate limits on inmate phone calls made to other states.
Securus Technology’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard A. Smith asserts that over the past few weeks, the telecoms service provider together with its business rivals have had two cases ruled in their favor. The three entities had taken the issue to the US Court of Appeals regarding inmates’ phone call rates. The first complaint was about permitting a stay on a bulk of the Commission’s decree on inmates’ calling charges. The second complaint was about the inapt allowance of provisional state to state call tariffs. The court felt that the FCC had committed a discretion and therefore, abolished the provisional tariffs.
