Securus Technologies is going to be casting a very public light on Global Tel Link (GTL). The light is going to illuminate “wrongdoings and integrity breaches” on the part of GTL, an inmate communications company. Securus wants to reveal information through a series of articles and press releases. The news Securus is soon to publish will capture the attention of a lot of eyes. The media campaign performed by Securus is not planned to be a short one.
The goal is to continue the campaign for about six month. The endgame here is to “shame” GTL into cleaning up its act. Bad publicity has a tendency to get companies to do just that.
Initial reports from PR Newswire show GTL double-billed calls, inflated charges, and programmed calls to charge higher rates. Securus is taking action to make the world aware of what this company is accused of doing.
Securus Technologies is a company that has served the prison industry quite well over the years. About 2,600 correctional facilities have signed contracts to use the prison technology and software manufactured by Securus Technologies. The Dallas, TX company is truly a trendsetter in the industry. Look for Securus America Technologies to remain a major player for years to come.
