A surprising new technology is actually catching criminals from the inside of prisons. Securus Technologies is a long-standing member of the prison telecommunications industry. You probably have never heard of them before but they do good work in this industry by providing affordable telecommunications services to prisoners. The company’s technologies help prisoners stay connected to the outside world which actually reduces recidivism.
But it is another software technology that helps law enforcement catch criminals inside and outside of the prison. It should come as no surprise that criminals hang out with each other. That is why this telecommunications company records every telecommunication involving one of their inmates.
Of course, this all piles up into an insurmountable database. It would take hundreds of hours and dozens of law-enforcement officials to comb through the entire digital mainframe. But an emerging software allows law enforcement officials to find that needle in a haystack. It does this by locking onto a prisoners voice. Once the software program has the prisoner’s voice, it can then turn to the database. Every single telecommunication involving that individual pops up automatically.
The voice that law enforcement uses does not have to be a prisoner’s voice. Law enforcement can lock onto the vocal fingerprint of a criminal outside of the prison. Every time that particular individual of interest calls the prison, the call will be flagged and monitored. Vital information has been culled from these phone calls. And the software is so accurate that these recordings can score law enforcement a search warrant.
This technology has led to numerous arrests outside of prison. You would think criminals would catch on but there is no beating this technology. You cannot even mask your voice against it. It is amazing that this telecommunications company is keeping our streets safer through these wonderful innovations.
