Innovation for a Safer Society from Securus Technologies

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.

 

 

How Securus is Making Correctional Facilities Safer

Securus Technologies is a contractor based in Dallas, Texas that develops products for detainee communication and information management. Securus has been recognized in the past for the services that it has provided to various organizations. 2016 was a good year for them as it saw them receiving an A+ rating and accreditation from the Better Business Bureau. They published a few of the comments that they had received from users of their products and their services who expressed their satisfaction with Securus’ services in October. These observations were extracted from emails and letters that they received from prison and jail officials.

 

Richard Smith is the Chairman and CEO of Securus Technologies. He says that the company fostered innovation and released new products and services each week. These products are aimed at aiding law enforcement and officials to solve and prevent crimes from taking place. He added that the company was dedicated to ensuring safety and they make certain that their products do this.

 

One of the comments outlined how they were able to use Securus’ products to extract information from phone calls. The information went a long way in helping them acquire a search warrant which led to the arrest of a corrupt staff member who was smuggling contraband into the facility. Another comment from a prison official explained how they got information from monitored calls on some illegal activities that were taking place in the facility. They obtained information on the presence of drugs and alcohol in the facility and the presence of mobile phones.

 

The LBS software was mentioned in several comments and how it helped in the conduction of many investigations. One official said that LBS software had worked so well for them that they decided they would be a long term client of Securus. One comment mentioned how a member of law enforcement was able to use the covert alert feature during an investigation that led to the arrest of the suspect.

 

Securus Investigator Pro 4.0 With Voice Search Allows Law Enforcement To Focus

Imagine being tasked with the investigation of all the phone calls made by a singular inmate into an out of all the prison facilities he has ever been. Every single phone call that an inmate makes in the United States is recorded. You’d have to go to every single one of the prisons to request these recordings. And how would you go about requesting them?

 

The prison likely logs these phone calls by the name of the inmate. You would get hours upon hours of recordings and need to comb through every single one of them. You’d have an easy time identifying some of the voices, like that of the prisoner’s mother. But other voices would not be as easy to identify. Oh, and you need to get this investigation done during a certain period of time so that the prosecutor can move forward with her case.

 

You’d likely make mistakes in this long and arduous process. You may even misidentify some of the subjects of the phone calls. But this job that would have taken weeks upon weeks to complete can now be done in just a matter of minutes. This is all due to a recent software release by Securus Technologies.

 

The Investigator Pro 4.0 with voice search can scan an entire prisons telephone call library for a single voice. You wouldn’t need to go through poorly kept logs and you can even narrowed down the calls further. You can cross-reference one voice with another to hear every single phone call between two identified voices.

 

This would cut down on many mistakes. You could focus more of your energy on a smaller number of phone calls while analyzing the content further. This technological innovation should put more people behind bars that deserve to be there.
