Crime prevention can be greatly helped today with Securus Technologie at the helm. working now with law enforcement since 2016, the inmate communicator is one way that crime prevention can occur today. It’s truly amazing how easily inmates can reveal vital information that can help the system crack the case, and incarcerate them. Nobody said that criminals were intelligent. This is how it can help.
Contraband is used by inmates to gain power and control over others. This can be very dangerous to the entire balance of the correction facility. Securus Technologies has an inmate communicator system that is used to prevent that. It can find and stop the use of contraband, and the presence of it. Officers can then raid the facility to gain the contraband back and restore the power to normal. This protects everyone involved.
That is just the tip of the iceberg though. It turns out that this same system can be used to help solve cases, some of which were previously cold cases. It does this by monitoring the inmate’s conversations. Say an inmate is talking to someone on the outside about what to say to the police when they come around. This information can reveal the fact that person in custody is in fact, very guilty of the suspected crimes. It really is pure genius.
Law enforcement can now take that valuable information and then truly have probable cause to hold the person, search their place of business, where they live and so on to find the needed evidence to prosecute. Not only that, but the system evidence is admissible in court.
That same person could reveal names, other places, and even discuss future plans of criminal activity. Gang affiliations can be shown and everyone involved can arrest for interrogation to solve the case.
When the correction facilities around the country were in need of technology to assist them with controlling the crimes that were occurring when the inmates were using the wireless networks, Securus Technologies stepped in to create a technology that would work. It is called the Wireless Containment Solution. Since they invented the technology, the problems in the facilities have lessened, and they are having great success with it. This is an exceptional company that stops at nothing to complete a project, and they are known for their expertise and perfection when they do.
Since the company wants the public to know more about what they do, they have decided have them down to their business location in TX. It is stationed in Dallas, and when the people are there, they will be given a tour and presentation of it. People will learn a lot by attending this event, and they can ask questions too. Once they learn how important the work the company does, they will want to follow them in the headlines to see what they are to on an ongoing basis.
Securus Technologies will continue to develop more technologies to better the public safety field. This is why they are the leader in the industry, because they have the expertise and the staff to do so. Assisting with over a million incarcerated people with techniques like monitoring, investigating and videotaping, they are able to solve and prevent a lot of crimes. In the future, they plan to create more technologies every week because their goal is to create a world where everyone is safe to work and live.
