SecureAlert, Inc. was founded by David Derrick and James Dalton in 1997 and has been aided by some of the world's largest companies, including Matsushita Electric Works (Panasonic), which is not only an investor in the company, but has helped to SecureAlert technologies.
SecureAlert Monitoring, a SecureAlert wholly owned subsidiary, was granted its first patents and technologies through a relationship with Philips Electronics that gave the company the right to use the Magnavox brand name for security and emergency products marketed to the elderly. In 2000, the company received additional patents and products centered on a single-button emergency cellular phone called Mobile 911. In 2001, additional patents were issued that combined emergency mobile devices with global positioning systems (GPS) technologies, allowing SecureAlert to pinpoint a caller's location.
SecureAlert's MobilePAL 1000 was then the first cellular device to incorporate GPS location technology. The Company has since further developed telematics technologies to become a leader in this field. In 2002, Matsushita became a strategic investor in SecureAlert, helping MobilePAL 2000 to evolve into a more solid and reliable technology. In 2003 and 2004, the company filed for additional patents and developed several new products including the TravelPAL. TravelPAL was developed for use in automobiles and has been sold through Radio Shack and ADT. In 2005, SecureAlert created the TrackerPAL, which allows the Monitoring Center to assist law enforcement officers in tracking parolees and probationers.
Expanding it's ability to offer comprehensive services that assist law enforcement, SecureAlert recently acquired Midwest Monitoring and Court Programs; full service case management companies that offer solutions that assist or administer probation and parole programs. In 2008, SecureAlert also introduced its next generation device the TrackerPAL II.
The TrackerPAL II combines global positioning system (GPS) and radio frequency (RF) tracking technologies with power of voice communication all in a single-unit. Supervising officers can create restrictions based on time of day (curfew) or specific location (exclusion/inclusion zone). When an offender is in violation of any set restrictions, an agent at SecureAlert's Offender Monitoring Center will immediately respond according to protocols set by the supervising officer.

Offender Monitoring Center
Staffed around the clock with a bilingual response team, SecureAlert's Offender Monitoring Center stands alone in its ability to track and monitor offenders, supporting law enforcement and rehabilitation agencies.

The customized protocols enable every agency to have a solution that meets their needs.
Two- and three-way way voice technology enables operators to instantly connect officers with offenders for active violation intervention and rehabilitation behavior reinforcement.
