A Perfect Marriage of Communication and Payment Systems: Securus Technologies and GovPayNet

Securus Technologies is a well-known prison communication company based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Securus provides prisoners with secure connections with family and friends. Law enforcement agencies and corrections facilities rely on Securus to provide easy to use communications.


With more than 30 years experience in law enforcement and correctional facility communication, Securus technologies provide a wide variety of communication programs. Securus’ commitment to its audience shows in their willingness to provide secure communication for inmates, correction officers, and the public. Many of the newer communications platforms can be customized to suit individual needs.


The recent Better Business Bureau (BBB) accreditation Securus received has proven their competence to get the job done. It also proves that they can be trusted to provide the best communication systems available.


GovPayNet is a credit and debt payment processor for the government. Their website touts that they provide “the simple way to pay.” Users of the GovPayNet system can use any major credit or debit card to make payments. They can also deposit funds into their account. Securus Technologies has some payment systems already set up for prisoners. The recent acquisition of GovPayNet as a means of making payments provides customers with the means to pay court fines, cash bail and pay for traffic violations.


The combination of JPay’s educational and entertainment modules with GovPayNet’s system nearly completes Securus Technologies acquisitions. Prisoners, correction officers, and the public now have a fairly seamless way to communicate, conduct transactions and be entertained in a secure environment.


This is the perfect marriage because having a secure system to communicate and send money provides peace of mind. For many inmates, it is important that they do have the means to connect with family and friends. It is equally important for the correction officers to maintain safety for everyone.
