The reasons that our prison has partnered with Securus Technologies are numerous, but all seem to come down to the fact that safety is and always will be our top concern. It doesn’t matter if it is the safety of me and my fellow officers or making sure to keep the peace with all the inmates, a safe prison is a happy prison.
To complicate matters, we have overcrowding and gang population explosions that are creating tensions behind bars for anyone trapped behind those prison walls. Add into the mix the fact that drugs and weapons can be acquired easily, you have a volatile mix that needs to be addressed on a daily basis or people get hurt.
In the past, my team of corrections officers have take precautions to ensure the safety of all. We have done body scans and searches in the visitor center so nothing illegal is changing hands between inmate and guest. We follow up on those efforts by hitting the inmate’s cells each day with inspections to remove anything that could be a potential problem.
Securus Technologies employs a thousand hard-working individuals who are committed to making out world safer. The company has thousands of their inmate call monitoring systems operating in different prisons around this country. The LBS software will do the work of a half-dozen officers, scanning calls for anything that could be considered a threat to safety in the jail.
Now that my team makes use of this technology each day, we have made some serious progress in tightening up loose ends and making the jail safer. We can now identify when inmates expect things from family in the mail, if they are using drugs in their cells, and when gang members are ordering hits or demanding others sell drugs for the cause.
Securus Technologies recently made public comments received by the company from the public and users of its software. The comments received were mainly directed from investigators in correction facilities and wardens. In one instance, a warden noted that the product has helped in improving safety immeasurably within the facility. Another warden also commented how they have learnt to make use of information from communication records. The latest technological advancement have made everyone smooth and easy. The whole product provided by the company includes a software package that records people’s voices and identifies a person’s distinctive voice.
In another instance, a warden in the correction facilities was truly impressed with the extent which the product has gone to help fight crime. From their current assessment, there has been a tremendous improvement in investigations and the overall jail security. The release of the investigation tools has provided efficiency in the way investigations is carried out. Apart from simply recording and reporting data, the software has enhanced proactive measures in deterring and detecting contraband in correction facilities. Safety within correction facilities has been highly advanced and improved.
Securus Technologies is a company that was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. The company has multiple regional offices in other locations such as Atlanta, Allen, and Carrollton. Securus has grown to be a leader in providing communications and technology advanced equipment.
Securus Technologies has always been on the forward path to growth. The company recently made an announcement that they had acquired JPay Inc. The acquisition has helped improved the company’s service delivery. It has introduced education related materials, electronic payments and efficient communications solely by email. Securus has in the past year provided to more than 33 correction facilities modern gadgets that entail a modernized security system.
With Securus their communication service is all about connecting inmates with their loved ones and their lives. The video begins with a number of small, simultaneous shots of inmates talking to their loved ones on the phone and over the computer screen. These moving video clips fade out and it says such capabilities gets inmates “connected to smiles”, “connected to fathers”, “connected to birthdays”, “connected to performances”, “connected to bedtime stories”, “connected to daughters”, “connected to sons”, “connected to weddings”, “connected to graduations”, “connected to sweet sixteen”, “connected to dad”, “connecting to game night.”
All of these are just examples. It fast forwards through a whole bunch of others and ends with “connected to you” and finally “connecting what matters.” In reality this is what they are doing. Without the use of this communication technology, inmates can miss out of so much in the lives of friends and families. Securus Technologies is a proud provider of this. This is just one of Securus’ many services, but it is a service that is extremely important to them. Securus has some top-of-the-line technology to help it do what it does.
One of its most valuable and most current tools for the law-enforcement sector is its XRMS Records Management System. This system offers world-class secure data storage, but at the same time it is incredibly easy to manage for persons who aren’t that technically savvy. It has become a very highly valued tool by the law-enforcing industry throughout the U.S and the most trusted source of police officers everywhere. This is known as one of the most innovative public safety software tools on today’s market.
Another extremely valuable tool is the XMobile. This is perhaps the most cost-effective option for public safety professionals. Like the XRMS, the XMobile gives officers incredibly fast access to needed data while also reducing the need for duplicate data entry.
And it is continuing to develop this communication. Just this past spring it delivered more than 84,000 intelligent communication devices throughout the country. The purpose of this innovation is to help rehabilitate inmates, improve prison safety, to help inmates get jobs, and to generally make society a safer place.
