Securus Technologies Acquires Credit Card Processor GovPayNet

Securus Technologies, a leading provider of government and law enforcement safety and technology, recently announced its acquisition of GovPayNet.


GovPayNet is one of the largest credit/debit card processors in the nation. The company offers payment processing services for consumers paying court fines/fees, bail, speeding tickets and even parking violations. The services offered by GovPayNet are offered in 35 states in the U.S.


Securus Technologies CEO Robert Pickens expressed his delight at the partnership with GovPayNet. “We are excited to add another great product to our already expansive portfolio.”


“Our team has more than 20 years of experience in credit and processing services. We are proud that we will be able to offer consumers a first-rate service who work in government and related services.”


GovPayNet CEO Mark McKenzie shares Pickens’ sentiment regarding the possibilities of what can be achieved with the new system. “We are looking forward to the new growth and how quickly services can be expanded by adding new features.”


GovPayNet has been in the law enforcement payment processing for over 20 years. The company was created in 1997 by a former law enforcement official who was looking for more streamlined ways to handle cash bails and other payments. GovPayNet’s massive portfolio of transactions include payments for restitution, payment oversight, towing, impound fees, traffic fines and even child support. The funds go directly to the appropriate departments. More than 2,300 entities across the U.S. use GovPayNet.


Securus Technologies is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. The company currently serves more than 3,200 law enforcement entities across the U.S. and over 1.2 million inmates. The company is committed to finding broad-based customer solutions to help all citizens live in a safe environment.
