Securus Technologies Exposes Massive Wrongdoings of GTL

Securus Technologies is committed to public safety. That is why they are releasin a series of documents that reveal the extent to which GTL (Global Tel Link) – a communications provider to inmates. The documents come from the Louisiana Public Service Commission.

In one of the official 17 page reports, GTL is seen to be responsible for a major security breach of inmates and correction facilities, among other faults. For example, GTL supposedly overcharged per minute of phone calls to the inmates. And they added extra time to the phone calls that did not exist, as well as charging higher than the standard rate permitted under Louisiana state laws.

These wrongdoings by GTL have cost Louisiana tax payers an estimated 1.2 million. Securus felt that it was its duty to help people understand these actions and who was responsible. That is why they made the documents and other facts available for the entire public to view at will.
