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.
Securus Technologies is unlike many other companies operating in the correctional industry. Securus Technologies does not only focus on generating higher revenue but is also working hard to make a positive impact in the prison industry, which has been neglected for long. The company aims to develop products and services that would help the prisoner to reconnect with their friends and relatives as well as assist the law enforcement officers to do their duty diligently with safety and equipped with latest investigative techniques and tools.
The products offered by Securus Technologies such as phone service, video service, video visitation, money transfer, kiosks, photo sharing, and more, helps the inmates to alleviate their stress. One of the primary missions of Securus Technologies is to reduce the crime rate inside and out of the prison. The services such as video visitation, which is a service the company launched recently, would help the inmates and their families to meet each other virtually more often than previously with the use of advanced gadgets like kiosks and tablets.
Securus Technologies is working hard to enhance the communications opportunities going forward and make these services more affordable than they are at the moment. Moreover, the company aims at integrating the tablets use across the correctional sphere to help the prisoners use tablet whenever they want with access restrictions as per the state and jail guidelines.
Securus Technologies also shared what the law enforcement officers feel about the company’s products and services through the media release it published online recently. The law enforcement officers think that the products and services of Securus Technologies are very helpful in catching the offenders, reducing the crime rate, and keeping them safe on the line of duty. As a police officer myself, I completely agree with hundreds and thousands of my colleagues across the country who are using the products and services of Securus Technologies and are thankful to the company for offering the same.
While my background is in law enforcement and working in jails for the past three decades, recently I was assigned to a task force that was responsible for solving cold cases and getting these suspects into jail so they could face charges. The problem with these cold cases is that no one is willing to talk anymore for fear of the suspect coming after them. To make matters worse, as the years pass, so does the evidence and memory of any eye witnesses.
One case I was assigned this year was only a few months old, but the suspect was a higher-ranking gang member who was running things on the outside after he slipped past the guards and out of the jail. The only reason it was a cold case was because we assumed he was already in Mexico and never coming back. When we discovered he was still in Los Angeles, I needed to get all my other officers on board with a plan of attack.
One of the officers on the task force still works in our local jail, and informed me that Securus Technologies recently was working at the jail updating the inmate communication system and training officers on the LBS software. This was exactly what we needed in order to pick up on any chatter that was taking place inside the jail. Those gang members behind bars were still in contact with the suspect, and if we could catch wind of his movements we could position the team to take him down.
Listening in on one conversation between top officials in the gang, we discovered the suspect was on the move and going to be setting up a huge score in North California. Before he had a chance to even move, we surrounded the building and was able to bring him to justice.
