Anti-drone pilot program and 3 Stevie awards all circle around Securus Technologies

If you haven’t heard of Securus Technologies, that’s OK. They are still out there providing reliable communication and technology solutions for law enforcement and corrections facilities and now they have announced that they are teaming up with the Louisiana Department of Corrections to institute an anti-drone program to stop criminals from using drones to get materials into the prisons. Plus, Securus is doing other things to impress the rest of the industry thanks to their leading methods of providing outstanding customer service. Matching this kind of groundbreaking technology with outstanding customer service certainly shows a company on the rise and looking for new ways to innovate when it comes to technology and with the people behind the technology who make the engine run.

 

If that isn’t enough to impress you, how about the fact that Securus Technologies just won 3 Stevie Awards for their customer service record. The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service is the top-notch award for customer service and the team at Secure came away from the latest awards ceremony with a gold, silver and bronze for their efforts. It’s even more impressive when you consider that there were more than 2,500 nominations for this award from companies of all sizes and across industries.

 

Using a scoring system that takes into account a variety of customer service metrics across 89 different categories, Securus managed to get the scores that earned them the awards. They won a gold for dealing with customer complaints, a silver for one of their reps who was Customer Service Professional of the Year and a bronze for their front-line customer service team.

 

It seems Securus is trying to match outstanding technology solutions with equally outstanding customer service standards. The Drone Detection program is something to see and uses a digital antenna to detect drones in and around the prison. If you didn’t know that prisons had to deal with and worry about drones, then you wouldn’t believe what prison official say they have found evidence of. Drugs? Yes. Cellphones? You bet. How about weapons lifted right over the walls and dropped into the prison yards? Yes, that, too.

On top of this, the company opened up its own on-site kitchen and prepared meals three times every day to give to families in the area who were effected by the hurricane. CEO Tony Petrello also helped to set up the Nabors Disaster Relief Fund where he committed himself to matching donations made by the employees of the company that would go to hurricane relief.

Tony Petrello also recently welcomed Tommy Tune, the Broadway legend, back to Houston by hosting a cocktail reception in his own home. Many don’t know that while Tommy Tune lives in New York, he was born in Texas and attended high school in Houston. In Tommy’s honor, Tony Petrello and his wife, Cynthia, invited 50 guests to a party at the mansion of the Petrello’s. This was done to support the arts and culture and is just one of the many great things that Tony Petrello does in this capacity in his hometown of Houston. Together with his wife, he has also started up the Petrello Family Foundation, which works to help with the performing arts,m health, and education in the city of Houston. The deep mark they have left on the city of Houston motivated the Smithsonian to give them the Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service.

Tony Petrello will sometimes focus his philanthropy on very specific causes and missions that are close to his heart. One of these is the Texas Children’s Hospital, which is working to find real treatments for children who suffer with neurological disorders. It was the fact that his daughter, Carena, suffers from periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) that drew his attention to a set of diseases that really have no cure as of yet. When he discovered that there was no hospital or medical office working on these issues other than one, he donated large sums of money in order to help the Texas Children’s Hospital with its mission.

Thanks to Tony, many people will not have to suffer that otherwise would have. He truly has made the world a better place.
