Public safety and security are becoming more and more important these days. With a growing amount of cyber threats and advancement of technology, people are more interested in companies that work for the good guys. Solving crime and crime prevention is another aspect where technology can be beneficial. Companies operating in this sector research and develop solutions that help improve public safety. Introducing modern technology in correctional facilities one of the ways to do that.
Securus Technologies is one such company. They have more than 25 years of experience working with prisons, connecting inmates to family and friends. This helps with crime prevention since it also offers inmates access to education and legal assistance when necessary.
The company started work in 1986 and worked with several other companies on the first technology solutions for security and crime prevention. They created Securus Video Visitation system which allows family members and friends as well as lawyers to create video conversations and conference calls. It allows people to connect and keep in touch, improving the chances of inmates not returning to prison after their release date. It also helps with decreasing violent activities happening within the jail walls.
The response so far is positive, and the customers showed their appreciation with positive feedback. The technology helped to secure search warrants in several separate cases because of the monitored call system. It also allowed the staff to find out about inmates using drugs and alcohol as well as selling these substances. The software is also useful when searching for stolen or missing property or gang violence, as people are not always aware of how much can be picked up from a conversation in the background.
Securus Technologies dedicate time, effort and money to make sure that prisons become safer spaces for the staff and inmates alike since it is not the most fruitful of environments and a lack of socialising does not help.
