Securus Technologies will release a number of reports, articles, findings and facts that will highlight the integrity breaches of GTL, a provider of inmate communications. Securus Technologies provides technology solutions for both criminal and civil justice for investigation, monitoring, corrections and public safety. This will be the first press release in the anticipated series by Securus that will highlight the various integrity breaches and wrongdoings that were committed by GTL.
Richard A. Smith, the CEO of Securus Technologies, expressed his distaste by the actions of GTL as the company stooped way below the expected integrity bar of carriers in their industry. The first series will involve a 17-page Order by the Louisiana Public Service Commission numbered U-20784-B. This order regarded the various actions that GTL was guilty of doing when it provided services for the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
The PSC of Louisiana found some wrongdoings below that were conducted by GTL from their investigations. It also programmed the telephones to rate the calls on a basis of rates that were higher than the ones permitted under the PSC rate caps and tariffs. GTL also inflated its telephone charges artificially by adding some money to the calls after such calls were rated. GTL also billed some calls more than just once. As a result of these practices, GTL overcharged the taxpayers by $1,243,000.
