DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - August 14, 2009) - Securus Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of inmate communication services and innovative offender and case management software design, today announced the 1,000th installation of its SCP call management system. Installed at the Jordan, TX facility of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice on August 4th, 2009, the system will handle the communication requirements for all 854 Offenders housed in the four Jordan units. The installation of the Jordan, TX group of facilities is a portion of the larger contract to install the SCP system in all 114 facilities of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice system.

Starting with its initial installation in Wood County, TX in 2005, Securus has successfully installed its Secure Call Platform in over one third of its customer base facilities. The platform provides inmate telephone service to police departments, county jail and prison facilities and state correctional facilities throughout the country.

The SCP system was one of the first centralized inmate communications systems available in the industry. The system was not only designed to facilitate calls between friends and family members of inmates in correctional institutions, but was also designed to provide security and investigative features to help law enforcement solve crimes and protect the general public. Supported by multiple data centers located throughout the country, the system is known for providing crystal clear communication and advanced investigative capabilities.
