Securus Technologies, which is the technological safety company based in Austin, Texas, has been America’s top choice when it comes to providing safety technological solutions. They have been America’s top choice for the last three decades. Their products touch the realms of law enforcement, public safety, private investigations, and correctional facilities. Their products can be seen in over 1000 prisons and keep 1.2 million prisoners save every single year.
Recently however, the innovation of Securus technologies has been challenged by a brand-new problem. Many of us have seen those new drones being sold at Walmart and Best Buy. Mainly they’re used as hobby items to track birds, get better photographs, and spy on the neighbor’s kids. Unfortunately, they have also been used for much more nefarious purposes.
Many criminals have begun using drones to deliver illegal contraband to other inmates who are locked inside the prison system. This has been plaguing both state prisons and federal prisons for the last six years. This poses a great threat to other inmates inside the prison as well as the personnel that guards them and the community that surrounds the prison. These drones have been delivering cell phones, which are routinely used to continue to plot crime, drugs which help dealers inside the jail system continue their business, pornography, and weapons that are used to harm other inmates.
The engineering team at Securus Technologies has been working day and night in order to come up with a way to end this threat to the prison system. They believe they can utilize their Wireless Containment Solutions to prevent drones from gaining access to the prison system. They believe that as the drone approaches they can tap into the drone’s unique signature and turn off its power so that it cannot gain access. They hope that one day they will be able to use the Wireless Containment Solutions to override all security measures and force the drone to land. This helps them discover the items inside and track them to the culprit responsible.
Securus Technologies promises to continue working to perfect this deterrent technology. So far they have been working for 18 months calling in the greatest professionals in both the engineering and technology sectors in order to implement and install this brand-new program.
Securus Technologies has recently received the validation they needed to prove that they were the top dog in technology. In 2017, the company received three different Stevie Awards. While these awards are not as well known as the Oscars, with in the area of customer service and safety the Stevie Awards is the most prestigious award one can win. They took home gold, silver, and bronze.
During a recent investigation, my supervisor informed me that a cold case dropped on his desk and it was going to me my next task to complete. I was informed that the case was getting buzz again because one of the suspects was back in jail, but he rarely if ever slipped up and talked to undercover officers plant red in the prison. I knew that this facility recently upgraded their inmate call monitoring system throughout, so this was where I was going to focus my attention.
This suspect was the only connection between a violent crime and finding the weapons that could connect the crime, but he was a tough nut to crack. Knowing Securus Technologies already installed the call monitor, and realizing the LBS software was now scanning every minute of every call those inmates make on jail phones, all I had to do was apply just the right amount of pressure to get him to spill his guts.
My plan was to show up at the prison and start taking to other inmates about the case, dropping hints about us closing in on the weapons, and looking to see if anyone would talk. My intent was to let the inmates get the word to our suspect, and hopefully he would react. As planned, that evening he thought he was safe because a dozen inmates were all on the phone at the same time, but the LBS software isolated his call and he was making sure that his brother was taking care of something.
Surveillance of the brother revealed he was at the suspects home and left minutes later with something concealed in his coat. Later after a search, we uncovered the evidence needed to keep our suspect behind bars and he is now awaiting a trial for the crime.
But, working with the correctional facilities, I have to know the truth. Even in correctional facilities and prisons, the inmates often end up doing drugs or get caught in an inmate-inmate rivalry that can sometimes take lives too. The condition of the correctional facilities has not been good till Securus Technologies came along with its unique services.
Securus Technologies is a correctional facility technology that offers many different technology products to law enforcement agencies, public safety organizations and law enforcement agencies across the nation. The company has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Those looking to hire their services can easily visit their center and take a look around. Their members can easily show their visitors the different technological products that they offer.
By monitoring the inmates, we can anticipate any crime being planned and are able to stop it even before it happens. The technology provided by them is crucial for our investigations and monitoring, and we cannot do without them. If I had to share one incident, it would be how we managed to bust a drug cartel within our facility that has to operate for many months. While the members denied any involvement, we were still able to charge them using the evidence we collected.
I recently read a press release where many of their clients have shared their feedback on the good work that the company is doing. I realized how they have touched the lives of the people and have helped in the prevention of crime which is important for any society to live peacefully.
