Securus Technologies Contain Wireless Communications01.18.18

Authorities are cracking down on cell phone usage by prisoners in America’s prison system. It is becoming increasingly common for inmates to obtain cell phone through various forms of subterfuge, smuggling, etc. Upon getting these phones, they frequently use them to orchestrate illegal activities, including setting up hits on their enemies. Securus Technologies is one of the major prison communication systems that that is striving to crack down on the abuses.

 

It became apparent that inmates obtaining cell phones was going to be an ongoing issue, when a Florida ex-corrections officer was targeted for reprisals by an inmate who had access to a cell phone. This inmate ordered a hit on the official and his wife. Both people were shot. He was shot six times, all at the urging of an incarcerated individual who ordered a hit by cell phone.

 

That was not the only example of the heinous use of cell phones by inmates. Three other inmates actually ordered the murder of an infant via cell phone. The uncle of the infant was a co-confederate of the inmates. When things went awry between them the inmates ordered the infant killed. His conspirators executed the child in its mother’s arms while she was walking down the street a Georgia.

 

The ex-corrections officer’s name is Robert Johnson. Since his shooting he has been on a crusade to insure cell phone usage is banned in prisons. He has spoken to the Federal Communications Commission and now he represents Securus Technologies as they spearhead this effort to crack down on inmate cell phone abuses. Securus Technologies is instituting a blocking system referred to as the ‘Call Defender‘ that prevents cell phones from being used by inmates to make calls or to send text messages to the outside from inside the prisons. This wireless containment system is acts as an internal cell phone tower and decides which calls to connect and which ones to drop. Inmate calls that haven’t been cleared are automatically dropped.

 

Securus Technologies is continuously utilizing technology to cut down on illicit acts within the prison system. They discovered a corrupt staff member through phone call usage. They also used a similar method to break up a prison ring that was selling alcohol to inmates. Technology has consistently been a very effective method for unearthing corruption in the prison system.

 

For 15 years, Johnson worked for the Lee Correctional Institution in South Carolina. One of his jobs was to confiscate contraband. His shooting was directly tied to executing his job flawlessly. Now, Johnson is joining forces with Securus Technologies, which provides communications for inmates for 2,000 correctional facilities across the nation. By using their state of the art technology, inmates using unauthorized numbers cannot gain access to the outside world. The internal cell phone tower stops the calls. No longer can inmates plan hits or other criminal ventures from inside the prison system using cell phones.
