Many Correctional Facilities Are Moving Away From Paper Request Forms

For many years most correctional facilities used paper request forms. Basically everything involving inmate request forms was done on paper. While the use of paper request forms is a proven way to handle inmate request forms, the amount of time needed to handle the forms can be time consuming.

Securus Technologies has been a mainstay in providing technology for correctional facilities. As a way of providing other options beyond traditional paper request forms, Securus Technologies recently introduced a software application Inmate Forms and Grievance. The software application provides a technology driven option for utilizing inmate request forms. The technology is an automate way to utilize inmate request forms. Get the latest news on Linkedin about Securus.

I believe that the use of the Inmate Forms and Grievance application will offer correctional facilities many advantages over the traditional paper method. The application will allow correctional facilities to handle inmate request forms in a digital system. The use of a digital system will reduce the amount of time needed to handle inmate request forms by a significant amount.

I feel that by using a digital platform, access to the inmate request forms will be easier for correctional staff and inmates. A digital platform allows users to access the desired information from a variety of devices and the location is not important. This gives both staff and inmates more flexibility in accessing inmate request forms.

Additionally a digital platform reduces the amount of time needed to handle request forms. The technology developed by Securus Technologies provides an array of options that make handling the inmate request forms much easier than using paper request forms.

I feel that the Inmate Forms and Grievance software created by Securus Technologies will have a major affect on correctional facilities regarding inmate request forms.

The technology will allow correctional staff to focus more on facility related concerns such as safety and security by reducing the time needed to handle inmate request forms.

Business Use

There are a lot of uses for a reputation management company in business. If you own a small business, your reputation is a vital part of growing new business.

George Soros Bankrolls Democratic Party Candidates And Activities

After having scaled back on his political spending for more than ten years, billionaire investor and business magnate George Soros has resurfaced as a major backer of democratic political activism.

Specifically Soros has pledged more than $25 million to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and other party nominees and causes.

It was in 2004 that Soros spent roughly $27 million to unseat then US President George W. Bush and later held back on his political contributions. But over the past few months, he has expressed alarm and fear over Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Soros political adviser Michael Vachon told Politico that Soros has been more active in contributing to this year’s democratic party as the risks are extremely critical.

According to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, George Soros had donated more than five million dollars to a political action committee (PAC), which backs Clinton.

What’s more Soros donated millions of dollars to boost the number of Hispanic voters in crucial swing states as well as five million dollars to a nonprofit, the Voting Rights Trust, that battles conservative attempts to restrict voting.

Soros also made contributions to Planned Parenthood Votes and to a Senate Majority PAC that advances Democratic Senate candidates.

In addition to Soros’ contributions at http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-bearish-george-soros-is-trading-again-1465429163, many other benefactors have donated to various Democratic activities this election cycle such as an environmentalist, a hedge funder and two media magnates.

Born in Budapest in 1930, George Soros has focused on philanthropic efforts that also take in his international foundations. These organizations have donated more than $13 million over the past thirty years to non-profits that protect the rights everyone should have in society and build worldwide wellness programs as well as schooling.

After deciding he had enough money in 1979, Soros established the Open Society Foundation. Today the fund operates in more than one hundred countries and works to advance issues such as open society and human rights.

He is the author of more than a dozen books and his articles on politics and economics have been published in international newspapers and magazines.

According to Forbes and Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Soros is worth approximately $24.9 billion. He is the chairman of Soros Fund Management LLC, a hedge fund with a reported value of approximately $13.4 billion.

Securus Continues to be a Leader with Integrity

Securus has always attempted to demonstrate the highest levels of integrity in the industry of in the field of criminal justice technology solutions. They recently announced they will be publicly highlighting additional reports from the company GTL in order to to possibly make them behave with more integrity.

This is to be the first in a series of articles that will highlight some of the wrongdoing that GTL has administered. They will help the public by making them aware of some of the many integrity breaches GTL has done.

I love our industry – serving law enforcement, corrections, inmates, friends/family members, and all of society,” said Richard A. (“Rick”) Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies. “It offends me and our entire industry when a carrier stoops well below the integrity bar that most other carriers have – but GTL does not. Our business’ mission is a lot more than making money. It is to serve all of our customers with their best interests at heart – in the right way.”

The company plans to issue a number of press releases over the next six months that will document some of the abuses GTL did. They will also look at some of the cases brought before the Louisiana Public Service Commission as well, including the following:

  • Their policy of advancing the clock, which was deemed to be unethical and unlawful;
  • Artifiicallly inflating charges to customers;
  • And they engaged in a practice of billing a call more than once, and this was unauthorized.

Granted, the order by the PSC was dated from January 1998, so that is quite a long time ago. However, according to Securus the potential for wrongdoing continues, so they will still be making their case that Global Tel Link (GTL) should be more accountable for their actions.

RPS Solutions And Its Founder Kevin Seawright Are Changing Baltimore For The Better

The city of Baltimore has long wanted to increase the rate of home ownership within the city. The current percentage of people who own a home in the city stands at about 48%. Kevin Seawright and his company RPS Solutions seek to change that reality, and bring up the rate to the state average.

Joint Venture to Better the City

The joint venture was founded in 2015, with the goal of increasing the amount of homeowners in Baltimore and its surrounding suburbs. The company constructs and renovates affordable homes, and assists potential homebuyers by managing their assets and helping them connect with mortgage lenders.

The company has been met with success and has been able to add homeowners to a variety of Baltimore neighborhoods. Recently, they have started to fill the Belvedere Square neighborhood and their success has been documented by a variety of news outlets. T

By helping people become homeowners, the company hopes to rejuvenate the city and its surrounding suburbs by repopulating old areas and helping people build up their wealth. This new wealth will in turn help grow the communities they live in and to a greater extent Baltimore itself.

Kevin Seawright

Seawright is a financial professional that works mainly in the public sector to improve communities across the East Coast. He gained his Masters of Accounting from Almeda University and has also participated in leadership programs hosted by the Notre Dame Mendoza School of Business.

He has been heavily involved in local government and has been assigned to many roles throughout his 13-year career. Seawright has saved more than $100,00 for the local city government through the development of a new accounting system, and has held the positions of Chief Financial and Facilities Officer for the Department of Recreation and Parts and also as the Deputy Chief Operating Officer in the education sector.

Other than working on RPS Solutions, Seawright is currently part of the Newark Economic Development Corporation, an organization that focuses on retaining, attracting, and growing local businesses. On his free time, he is a coach for a local youth team and is a member of the American Society for Public Administration.

Richard Blair Advises Against AirBNB

Everyone loves to make a little extra money. Homeowners and even apartment renters are exploring their options with AirBNB. AirBNB provides a seemingly fantastic option. A homeowner who has vacant rooms available can rent them out. AirBNB is an online venue that handles the bookings and takes the payments. The bookings could be daily, weekly, or monthly. Some may choose to charge very low rates to draw in interested renters. Others may charge very high rates and reap the rewards of the bookings. Is all this a good idea though? Richard Blair of Wealth Solutions doesn’t think so. In fact, he wrote an article on many of the drawbacks with using AirBNB. These drawbacks can be quite significant.

Blair points out there are a great many risks associated with renting out a room. A renter could end up getting hurt on the property or causing damage. In short, there are liabilities that might come into play and do so in a disastrous manner.

The question of liability leads into the next issue of insurance. A new insurance policy may be required in order to cover the newly commercial use of the property. A non-commercial insurance policy could leave someone in a terrible spot if the policy is voided.

And then there is the unknown associated with the mysterious renters. The person could be involved with criminal activities and bring those problems into a short-term property. The landlord never knows what is going to happen until it is too late.

AirBNB does provide a level of protection, but the deals the service offers are inadequate. AirBNB might seem like a great thing when looking at the service on a computer screen. Closer inspections shows numerous trouble spots exist with the service.

Richard Blair absolutely knows matters related to finance and business. He runs Wealth Solutions, Inc. and has previously been affiliated with insurance and securities endeavors. Financial planning is one area of his areas of expertise. Financial planning often entails telling people to avoid bad investments and business ventures. Based on Blair’s assessments, renting through AirBNB does not seem like anything close to a good financial endeavor.
