The field of inmate communications and prison technology was neglected heavily when it comes to the integration of technology in the past couple of decades. Even though other sectors were advancing rapidly and the use of modern and advanced technology was rampant, the field of inmate communications and prison technology didn’t see much development. However, the scenario of primitive technology in the area of inmate communications and crime prevention technology was changed by Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies invests heavily every year into developing products and services that would help the inmates to communicate with their loved ones efficiently and at affordable prices. The company also develops new age crime prevention and investigative technologies that would assist in keeping the criminal activity low in the prison as well as in the communities. It is because the services offered by the company such as LBS and Investigation Pro helps in passing the crucial information to the law enforcement agencies that assist in taking corrective measures at the right time before the damage is done. Convicting the offenders in the court of justice also becomes easier with the evidence supported by the high-end services of Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies aims to keep its operations transparent, and with that aim in mind, the company recently published a press release on the web. In the media release, the company shared the contents of the letters written to the company by the law enforcement officers. The law enforcement officers have mentioned about the usage and effectiveness of the company’s products and services in the letters it wrote to the enterprise. The media release by the firm is a measure to help showcase the dedication of the company to the wider audience. As a law enforcement official myself, I am proud of what Securus Technologies is doing and how it is helping the law enforcement agencies to fight against the criminals effectively.
Technological advancements in the modern days have brought about the revolution of the world. Almost everything is technologically enabled these days. As a result, the state of things has been made easier and better. For instance, correctional facilities and law enforcement agencies have adopted technological mechanisms to help prevent and solve crimes in and out of these facilities.
Securus Technologies is a firm that has turned into a national leader in providing civil and criminal justice technology solutions for the purpose of monitoring, corrections, investigation, and public safety. Users of these technologies mostly are the prison and jail officials throughout the country. They have confessed to the fact that the incorporation of these technologies in their system has made their working environment better and safer.
For starters, clients have asserted that the technologies have assisted them in the capturing of corrupt staff members by use of information from phone calls. For instance, a person was arrested trying to bring in contrabands. Moreover, the monitoring of calls from inmates helped shed light on the alcohol and drug use and sale in the facilities.
Securus Technologies is a reliable vendor of choice and has meticulously served some correctional facilities for well over a decade. Its technology has brought about revolution and improvements regarding public safety. Others claim that it has largely assisted in their investigations and has improved the security posture of their jails. Besides, their investigative tools have made it possible for staff to conduct investigations in cases of harassment or potential threat to the facility. More so, the company’s LBS software has been of great help to the law enforcement in the recovery of millions placed in illegal assets and drugs.

Here is where a breakthrough from Securus Technologies can really help you out. You can bring them a voice recording of that gang leader and they can provide you with every single telephone call he has made to a prison that the technologies company services. This amazing innovation can have you listening in on every single plan, anecdote and a joke made by that gang leader to the active, incarcerated members of his gang.
