Securus Technologies has always been at the forefront of releasing technological advancements that make prisons a safer and more service efficient place. While prisoners are marveling over the new video and call services connecting them with their families, the correctional officers also have a story to tell.
Securus receives countless ‘thank you’ notes from prison wardens and officials from different facilities all over America. Most of these letters carry the same message of gratitude to Securus for providing technological solutions that have assisted in curbing insurgencies within the prison facilities. Rebellion occurs in all manners within the correctional facilities, and if one company has come up with a way to reduce this, it is definitely doing a commendable job.
From what the testimonials reveal, the technology from Securus is making a difference in keeping safety within the prisons. Through tapping and monitoring phone calls, prison officials have been able to recover contraband items in the form of drugs, alcohol or cellphones. Wardens are also able to control any illegal activity within their facilities like perceived threats, and suspicious activities or conversations.
It also seems that the blade cuts both ways as the warden themselves are often caught in the trap as well. One of the testimonials to Securus revealed how a corrupt prison official was netted after phone calls they made within the facilities were tapped and surveilled. If you ask me, Securus definitely have managed to produce a secure system that holds everyone accountable, regardless of which side of the prison bars you are on.
So we are looking at technological advancement that not only keeps prisoners in check but also plays big brother on unsuspecting dubious officials. Securus doesn’t stop there, on average the company is said to release a new product each week that will supposedly transform life within the prison walls. One of them has to be the new video calling service that lets prisoners connect with their families at any time of day wherever they are.
