Wichita, Kan. -- The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office has announced that Securus Technologies Inc. will supply collect call telephone services to inmates being housed at the jail and work release facilities.
The sheriff's office says Securus was chosen because of reasonable prices charged for the calls as well as the service and technology quality that will be provided. All 20-minute collect calls will cost $3.50.
That rate is 55 cents lower than the previous contract and within new federal guidelines for collect inmate calls.
