Global Tel Link Wrongdoings Exposed by Securus08.05.16

Securus Technologies provides technology solutions for the criminal and justice systems. Based out of Dallas, Texas, they are one of the largest providers of parolee tracking, biometric analysis, incident management, government information, and detainee communications. Securus serves over 3,400 correctional facilities in the USA, Canada, and Mexico and 1,200,000 inmates across the USA in 45 states.

After discovering Global Tel Link(GTL) has multiple wrongdoings Securus will be reviewing issues of misprogramming clocks to their telephones, charging higher rates that permitted, billing calls more than once, and using programs to artificially inflate the rates charged. The taxpayers of Louisiana have been overcharged 1,243,000.

Reprogramming the clocks on correctional facilities phones unlawfully adds 15 or 36 seconds to phone calls which are charged to taxpayers. GTL was also charging rates that were higher that the rate caps or under their tariffs. The rate caps were enacted in a 1998 order. Calls were double billed and that is not permitted under any circumstances. There was also artificial inflation in various amounts of money to calls after they were rated.

Securus will be releasing a series of reports over the next 6 months exposing GTL in an attempt to shame them into using better business practices.
