I wanted to pass along some information I recently discovered about a company based out of Dallas called Securus Technologies. They specialize in providing the most advanced security technology to correctional facilities and law enforcement entities across the U.S., Mexico and Canada – over 3,600 to be more exact.
Among its many technology offerings, the company is the leader in locating contraband phones – phones that are given to inmates illegally and used for unlawful purposes. Securus Technologies also offers a state of the art monitoring system that can listen in on calls both made by inmates and by employees. This technology can be used for purposes like monitoring unlawful activity happening within prison walls such as drug rings or gangs as well as monitoring an inmates connections to the outside world and any unlawful intentions that inmate may be partaking in. The company also has a huge range of other offerings include emergency response management.
Another article I found posted on PR Newswire recapped a few comments from letters and testimonials provided by actual Securus Technologies. The comments showcased how incredibly important and ultimately necessary having this type of technology is to the success of keeping our correctional facilities safe from potentially dangerous intrusions that can come from mobile phones.
The article which can be found here, held comments that spoke to the power of the technology in enabling law enforcement to take proactively monitor, locate and remove contraband devices within their walls. Outside of protecting from contraband phones, I also reach an interesting comment on how the monitoring system helped a correctional facility locate and arrest an employee that was working on behalf of the inmates in a corrupt manner.
It can’t be overstated how important the technology that Securus Technologies is providing is to our modern digital world.
