It was not surprising when I saw the comments on emails and formal letters that are coming in from prison and jail officials. These are for Securus Technologies and their staff. Mainly these were showering accolades on them for helping in solve cases so that the Facility becomes a safer place.
I read a few that spoke about the monitoring of phone calls. This made it easy to get information about alcohol use by inmates, or any drug use or drug selling that may be going on inside the facility. There were cases of a cellular device being smuggled into the facility. Next were calls that gave information about any threat or such other suspicious activity like money coming in the Facility. There was a talk about a past incident of shots being fired. There was information about a civilian who admitted to selling prescription drugs at a discount.
I realized that there are a number of correctional facilities that rely a lot on the technology solutions that are being offered by Securus Technologies. They express their appreciation that Securus Technologies is able to revolutionize the incarceration environment and make it safe. This way they help the jail officials to improve public safety, especially in their jurisdiction.
Even others have been highly impressed with this vision of Securus Technologies. They can do a current assessment in order to help develop the emerging capabilities. This can enable investigations and help to improve jail security. This would require investigative tools which can be combined with the aggression as well as the investigative mindset of prison officials.
Securus Technologies provides reporting data to enhance the proactive measures that can be taken by any Facility in order to monitor and deter any incidence of contraband in the facilities. The staff can conduct investigations on any complaint of harassment or any potential threat to the security or even to the community.
