The law enforcement industry is a tough industry. No one would dispute that. Dealing with criminals and those in corrections facilities comes as no easy task. There are companies out there in the technology industry who work every day to create software and technological advances to ease the burden, even just a little, on law enforcement. One of those companies is Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and they serve over 3,450 agencies all over North America. In addition to those agencies, they work with over 1.2 million inmates currently housed in corrections facilities. Securus has been in business for over three decades and continues to be a leader in software development.
Recently, Secures Technologies has come under fire in a press release written by Global Tel Link, or GTL. GTL is a competitor and both companies are involved in many of the same patents. Many of the claims state that Securus Technologies does not have the rights to use certain patents and they need to stop immediately. Another claim goes on to say that Securus is more than willing sue all of their competitors.
Securus Technologies did not take all of these allegations sitting down.
This fight seems to be far from over and it is still uncertain how it will all play out in the end. Patent lawsuits can take years to resolve so both companies are in this for the long haul.
