Securus Technology Solutions Help Make Inmates Safer In Prisons03.24.17

With Securus Technology’s solutions for corrections facilities, crimes are stopped before they occur, which makes inmates, corrections officers and the public safer. After recently reading a press release where Securus shared a few of the thousands of emails and letters that they receive from their jail and prison customers, I realize that corrections customers count on Securus to make the incarceration environment safer for everyone.


In one facility, monitored calls revealed alcohol and drug use inside the prison, which the guards must have missed, but now they are aware of it and can take steps to stop crime in their facility. Other calls that were monitored revealed other suspicious activity, including an unusual money transfer. Whenever there is drug and alcohol use in prisons, inmates who were addicted to these substances before entering the prison have no incentive to stop using either alcohol or drugs.


In another case, a corrupt staff member was caught bringing contraband into the facility. Thanks to information obtained from a phone call with Securus’ technology, a search warrant was issued. The facility was so glad to have found the source of the contraband that they wrote to Securus, thanking them.


Effective communications management in prisons and jails has a direct impact on inmates and guards, as Securus Technologies solutions offer crime-fighting abilities. While inmates were convicted of a crime, they deserve a safe facility, free of alcohol and drugs, to serve their sentences.

Securus video visitation makes institutions safer for everyone01.30.17

Securus Technologies, a leading provider of prison communication services, has been developing and implementing its video visitation systems throughout the last decade. These have proven enormously successful, with both inmates and staff acclaiming the system for its efficiency and savings. But as much as inmates and their families have loved the ability to allow for almost constant communication between them, some of the largest benefits have accrued to officers in the form of increased safety of the institutions themselves.



Detecting and preventing crime


Historically, one of the largest problems that prisons have faced in the United States has been the ongoing criminal enterprise perpetrated by gangs with highly structured hierarchies and military-like discipline. One of the things that have made these gangs so shockingly dangerous is their ability to operate criminal enterprises not just within prison walls, but on the outside as well. Cases of individual gang leaders amassing fortunes while incarcerated have been known. Another lurid problem is gang leaders being able to order brutal murders and physical assaults to those on the outside, including witnesses, snitches and their families.


Video visitation and other systems in Securus’ line up have allowed officers to fight these problems like never before. Voice, facial and other biometric data is used to identify any unauthorized persons talking on any device on prison property. This can be achieved within milliseconds and officers alerted so that they can begin to monitor the call in real time. All text messaging can also be analyzed for any kind of anomaly, including the use of code words or other keywords that may indicate criminal activity.

Securus’ products have the capability to monitor every word spoken and typed within institutional walls, including, where permitted, non-electronic voice conversations occurring between two inmates anywhere within the facility. These measures are keeping prisons safer than ever before.
