Not everyone in the prison system is in there due to a violent crime. Many of the people in the prison system are there because they made bad decisions and were forced to serve a sentence that fit the crime. If you have ever been to prison, you know first hand about the crimes that take place behind the prison walls. You may have witnessed a crime or was part of a crime while in prison. The hope of Securus Technologies is to help put an end to those who are affected by the high crime rate in prison.
Not everyone who is in prison are there creating havoc while serving a sentence. The havoc is being cut short by those who are working to put a stop to the crimes taking place. Securus is always looking to provide answers to those in need of help for the crimes taking place. They are seeked out each year to find ways to reduce the rates of crimes occurring in the prison.
Crimes that occur in prison are not just at the fault of the inmate. Often there are people who work for the jail that also cause crime within the prison walls. For inmates, it can be in the form of contraband such as phones, drugs, weapons or more. When this happens, the prison becomes a much less safer place.
Inmates and workers are already at an increased level of crime while in the prison system. They should not be forced to also find a new way to keep themselves safe while in prison. Securus is working to create products and services which will put an end to the high level of crimes.
If by teaching the inmates to be better inmates, we are able to provide them with the life lessons they need to be successful upon reentering society, we have created a better place for all to be in. The hope is by doing this, Securus Technologies is doing just that.
Coming to the United States of America in order to pursue your dreams in business can be considered one of the foundations by which the USA has built itself into an empire. Adam Milstein, an immigrant from Israel, came to the United States in order to pursue higher education and after doing so he found incredible success with Hager Pacific Properties. As the Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties, Milstein has watched the company grow by leaps and bounds every single year. Let’s look at how Milstein has approached his work and how his background has helped to sculpt him into the entrepreneur that he is today.
Adam Milstein says that his goal in coming to America was to pursue a higher education. That goal led him to attending USC in Los Angeles, CA. It was there that Milstein would secure his MBA in the field of entrepreneurship. Milstein had an idea that he wanted to take control of his career and that idea was solidified after attending a campus recruiting effort. During this recruiting event he realized that companies were not willing, prepared, or able to pay him a comparable rate to other American citizens. From Milstein’s perspective, he felt like this meant that they didn’t really understand the strength of his background and what that meant for his career. Milstein left the recruiting event disappointed and that guided him to his next decision. Milstein says, “I decided to go out on my own, and start working as a real estate commercial broker.” Milstein chased this career for three years before he became an investor and that led to the birth of Hager Pacific Properties.
As an entrepreneur, Adam Milstein became intimately aware that his life would be structured far different than he had been used to. Milstein says, “You don’t know what your day will look like.” As Milstein continued to developer Hager Pacific Properties, his portfolio began to take shape and with it structure began to fall in place. Milstein credits his willingness to continually push a concept “until they become reality” as one of the major components of his success.
