How Securus Technologies is Changing the Crime Technology Landscape

As a criminal justice major, I was very interested to learn about innovative companies that are using the power of technology to benefit us and to regular our country’s prison system. When I think about crime committed by inmates in the prison system, I typically think of drug rings or hand to hand violence. I never would have thought about the role that technology would play in allowing inmates to commit crimes while incarcerated.

 

Cell phones are typically contraband in prisons and correctional institutions, meaning they should not be brought in. However, many inmates have these smuggled in and they attempt to do bad things or commit crimes with them while on the inside.

 

Securus Technologies is a company I recently read about that has worked diligently to make sure that cell phones and other technology can’t do any harm if they are smuggled into a prison. First, they have a technology that is able to locate and pinpoint any contraband cell phones that are brought in to prison. The service allows prison security to be notified when there is a cell phone brought in and then they can locate and confiscate that phone. Securus Technologies also has a technology that blocks mobile phones from being able to access any wireless services, whether they are known or not. This is critical as inmates can commit crimes or do other harmful acts with the simple act of connecting to WiFi.

 

Securus Technologies is the leader in providing this type of inmate security through their technology. They are headquartered in Dallas Texas and have satellite offices throughout the United States.

 

In fact, Securus is so prized by its user base that clients took it upon themselves to write in to note the ways that the technology has helped their prison system. For example, one person wrote in from a prison and stated that by using Securus’s tech they were able to uncover an entire ring of drug and alcohol inside the prison.

 

Securus Prison Tech Busting Criminals On The Outside

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.

 

Securus Technologies prevents crime using cutting-edge tech

Securus Technologies is the nation’s leading provider of inmate communication services. Serving over 3,500 institutions, the company provides calls at reasonable rates to a huge percentage of the nation’s prisoners.

 

But many do not know that Securus is a major provider investigatory solutions, crime prevention technologies and systems that allow the nation’s penal institutions to run smoother. With a research and development budget larger than any other company in its sector, Securus has been developing some of the most cutting-edge and innovative technologies seen in the prison industrial space.

 

Securus believes strongly in getting these crime preventing tools into the hands of the men and women who are charged with guarding the nation’s prisons. One example of these systems is Securus’ Location Based Services. This system enables corrections officers to keep close tabs on the locations to which inmates are placing calls from within the prison. This is been used in many investigations and has even been used as crucial evidence in cases involving serious crimes.

 

One of the most serious threats to the United States’ prisons is activity perpetrated by gangs. The main means by which these gangs carry out their activities is through the use of illicit communication both inside and outside of the prison. Location Based Services give law enforcement a tool to prevent gangs from plying their illegal trade inside or outside of the prison walls.

 

With location based services corrections officers can immediately determine where the calls are being placed and what parties are receiving them. The system can be set-up to automatically notify corrections officers of any suspicious or unusual calling activity, such as calls being placed within the immediate vicinity of the prison and calls being placed to known criminal parties.

 

Ultimately, such services make the nation’s prisons safer and allow prison staff to do their jobs with much more speed and effectiveness.
