How Securus Technologies Secures You.

Security is such a big deal that a company like Securus Technologies has grown into the capacity of keeping over 1,000 employees constantly busy serving the United States and Canada. Securus Technogies is an information and communication technologies company (ICT) that has specialized in developing technologies that enhance the communication integrity in American and Canadian correctional and holding facilities. It directly determines how secure the 2,200 prison communities it services and their neighbors get. The company is based in Texas but has numerous offices across the two countries.

Securus Technologies focuses on limiting all the communications done in the prisons and detention centers it serves to the confines of law. One of the major advantages that inmates enjoy from the company’s services is that it allows them to keep in touch with their loved ones at subsidized prices. While enhancing the economy of prisoners, the company also enhances the security of prisons by preventing illegal communications between inmates with other inmates and their outside criminal contacts. The company dedicates a lot of time and other resources specifically to that end.

According to reports by PR Newswire, Securus develops new technologies every week to prevent illegal prison communications. The company has been known to develop cutting edge technologies and has since its entry into the market spent over 600 million dollars on patents and intellectual patents. The company management is so committed to innovation that it partners with other leading IT firms to develop technologies that make its activities as efficient as possible. Its most recent partnership was with the Harris Corporation and it led to the creation of the ‘’cell defender’’. The lovechild creation was an absolutely ingenious configuration that prevents contraband mobile devices from connecting with mobile networks within assigned correctional and holding facilities.

According to letters written to Securus by concerned and grateful stakeholders, the company has had a general positive impact on the security status of prisons they serve and even those that they don’t serve since the inter-prison crime syndicates have been rendered ineffective. Coordinated attacks on inmates, prison officials, and their families have been much difficult to perpetrate with the services that Securus has been delivering.

 

Catching Fugitives with Help from Securus Technologies

I was notified this week my fugitive task force was to find and drag back to jail a very dangerous fugitive who was also wanted for shooting cops. If this suspect has little regard for the police, you can imagine what he thinks about the average citizen he comes across. This was the kind of trash we had to find, arrest, and get off the streets before he put anyone else in danger.

 

Despite our best efforts, this suspect had a number of family and friends who had no trouble hiding the fugitive. When the suspect got word we were inquiring about his location with his family, he stepped things up. His next robbery at a local restaurant was troubling because he took the owner into the meat locker and beat him to the point he almost died. That was enough for our team, as we pulled back all our visible efforts and decided that we had to start working more in the shadows without the help of anyone our suspect had relations with.

 

Securus Technologies was installing a new inmate telephone call monitoring system in the prison that we knew could be a valuable resource. Once me and the team learned how the LBS software worked, we were excited for a few reasons. Instead of talking to the inmates, and perhaps tipping them off so they could let our suspect know what we were up to, we could work in the shadows. The system is capable of doing the work of a number of my officers, so we were going to get bigger results in less time. With so many people helping keep our suspect away from capture, we knew eventually someone would talk.

 

Days later an associate let slip about a safe house off our radar, so we stormed the facility and found our suspect sleeping off a night of heavy drinking. He was unable to resist and was easily taken into custody.
