Lately, it’s become about making sure that inmates can rejoin society without causing future problems and land themselves back behind bars. It’s the best way to make communities safer and better.

In pursuit of that mission, Securus acquired JPay Inc. in a Stock Purchase Agreement. JPay is the top technology company that brought electronic payments, email, and numerous apps to the industry.

For JPay, it’s not just about getting the community safe. It’s also about empowering inmates so that they’re less likely to return to a life of crime once released. That’s why they developed so many entertaining and educational apps that they now offer to inmates.

He calls his company one of the strongest investments anyone can make right now. He’s committed to continuing to push his team to perform their best every day.
For him, the best results come in the form of appreciation letters. His company gets thousands of letters and emails every year, thanking them for their commitment to public safety and providing high-quality services.
