The founders of Satellite Tracking of People LLC created the company in December 2004 to revolutionize the electronic monitoring industry with BLUtag, our pioneering one-piece GPS monitoring device. Since that time we have provided hundreds of Federal, state, county and municipal agencies with our system and enhanced its functionality to meet their evolving needs and expectations.
Since STOP’s inception, we have distinguished ourselves through technology innovation and unmatched responsiveness to customers. We have always referred to our customer agencies as “partners,” reflecting the imperative we must first understand their program and operations and then adapt our technologies to meet their needs. We do not ever attempt to sell a “one-size-fits-all” solution. We designed our organization so the key leaders of software, hardware and customer operations (some of whom have been with the company since the beginning) remain close to daily operations, even as our customer base has grown.
In December 2013, Dallas, Texas-based Securus Technologies, Inc. acquired STOP as part of the strategy to expand its advanced technology product portfolio. Securus is the unquestioned technology leader in the law enforcement, corrections and public safety industries with more technology patents issued and pending than all of its competitors combined. While STOP continues to operate as a wholly-owned independent subsidiary, cooperation with other Securus subsidiaries has accelerated STOP’s product development and innovation in areas such as mobile applications and advanced data analytics.
