How Securus Technologies Changes Prison Policy

It seems like yesterday that my prison was ranked worst in state for violence. Me and my fellow officers were unable to even get near inmates because it would explode into a violent episode. Thanks to Securus Technologies, the crime and violence has dropped, and we are able to once again maintain a degree of order throughout.

 

Securus Technologies is responsible for developing a call monitoring system that is used in the jail to listen to when inmates are using the house phones. In the past, me and my fellow officers would need t be manning the phones manually, and this took us away from other areas of the prison that needed our attention. Even listening manually we still were unable to gather all the evidence we needed because of the sheer number of calls versus officers.

 

Securus Technologies is based out of Dallas, and they are already up and running with this system in over two thousand prisons. The company boosts that all thousand employees are working to make this world safer for us all, and we can definitely attest to that.

 

My team was quickly brought up to speed with the LBS software, which now scans all the calls on the jail phone for chatter relating to crimes, violence, drugs, contraband, and gangs. If the system does pick up on anything, me and my officers will get the alert and then be in the position to take action immediately instead of letting the incidents unfold.

 

To give you a better example of how we get ahead of issues now, the LBS software alerted us last week when an inmate bragged about doing drugs in his cell. We even got an alert as a new gang member complained he was being forced to sell drugs and pay his leaders for his hard work.

Recently, Securus announced that it had activated another implementation of its Wireless Containment Solution (WCS).  The solution also collects the electronic identity of the contraband phone, providing correction officers with data and intelligence to help solve and curb crime. Richard Smith, Chairman, and CEO of Securus applauded states implementing their new technology in preventing unauthorized communications thereby keeping the public safe.

 

In the past, other providers in the industry through their managed access solutions have appeared to identify cell phone signals but unable to prevent them. Securus team of technology experts was able to solve this problem by introducing Securus Wireless Containment Solution. Through the technology, unauthorized calls are barred from getting to the network where they can endanger the lives of officers, witnesses, victims and inmates themselves.

 

Contraband phones in the hands of prisoners present a high threat as they enable continued criminal activities from prison. According to Smith, the solution contains specialized technology which manages all unauthorized mobile devices in a controlled area in a facility and only allows authorized devices to connect to the network. The main aim of the technology is to stop this illegal use and help its clients improve safety within and outside the correctional facility walls.
