Securus Technologies has long been the leader in the correctional sphere, and with the kind of technologies it has been innovating and developing from time to time, there is no doubt as to why the company has held on to its position at the top in the corrections space. Recently, Securus Technologies rolled out the Wireless Containment Solutions, which is the only tested, accepted and approved contraband interdiction technology available in the market currently.
With the help of the Wireless Containment Solutions provided by Securus Technologies, it is impossible for the inmates to be able to use the contraband phones. The epidemic of the contraband phone use has been spreading across all the correctional facilities lately, and it damages the penitentiary ecosystem in ways more than one. Not only does it makes the corrections space less secure for the inmates as well as the officers, but it also makes the criminals more powerful by giving them the control of the criminal activities outside the prison as well through their extended network outside. It has put the lives of many officers as well as civilians in danger in the past and has also resulted in the death of many.
Securus Technologies’ CEO Rick Smith said that the FCC has been working on expediting the process of implementing the use of WCS technology in the correctional facilities across the country. The backing of FCC would help in reducing the paperwork and documentation required in rolling out Wireless Containment Solutions in the correctional facilities. The contraband phones would be barred from making any communications from within the prison with the WCS technology installed. Recently, there was a disturbing video out in the social media that was taken by an inmate from inside the Evans Correctional Facility. The inmate used the contraband phone to shoot a video of nearly three minutes and then posting it on the social media while brandishing a knife in the video. It goes on to show the loopholes within the security apparatus of even the most secure prisons.
Securus Technologies firmly believes that with the use of Wireless Containment Solutions, it would become more comfortable for the law enforcement agencies to restrict the use of contraband phones inside the prison. Currently, as a test, the eight facilities that were using the Wireless Containment Solutions has been able to stop 1.7 million unauthorized and illegal communications to and from the prison through the contraband phones. The inmates who have contraband phones can also be detected with the use of this technology, which would further infuse the fear among the inmates as to not take the risk of using the contraband phones. Wireless Containment Solutions is the only technology that has been found to be successful in keeping contraband phones away so far in the correctional sphere.
