Securus Technologies: A Pioneer in Payment Processing Services

Securus Technologies recently acquired GovPayNet; a company that specializes in payment processing to government agencies. The acquisition will broaden the payment services of Securus. Securus is located in Carrollton, Texas and provides services to thousands of government agencies and millions of inmates across the United States. Securus provides a wide range of services to law enforcement, corrections and public safety agencies to ensure they have the support they need to keep the nation safe.


GovPayNet was founded in 1997 by a former law enforcement official to help law enforcement agencies with payment processing. Since then, the company has broadened its services to assist the government with a wide range of payment and monitoring services to include: restitution, towing, child support and traffic fines. The company supports thousands of government agencies in the United States.


The acquisition of GovPayNet will increase the payment processing of Securus to over 40 million per year. The company hopes to continue to grow and expand to gain a bigger share of the market. They currently operate in the majority of states and would like to expand to every state eventually. Securus has received an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). This should help Securus continue to expand the business and instill confidence in their customers.
