Securus Technologies Making Prison Life Safer for All

Each day I report for work at the local prison I am more concerned than the day before. The violence in our jail has been escalating recently, due in part to an increased gang presence and the fact these inmates are packed in an overcrowded facility. As tensions increase, the safety for me and my fellow officers decreases. The trouble we have is that not only are we trying to make things safe for officers, I must make sure inmates and their guests are protected from harm too.

 

Securus Technologies has gained notoriety recently because their inmate call monitoring system has allowed thousands of jails to tighten up their security. The company is based in Dallas and has well over a thousand employees who feel they are making a difference in making the world a safer place for all. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, knows his team is doing everything possible to help officers to get back control in their own facilities.

 

On any given day, me and my team will start the day by searching various inmate cells to look for any contraband. Then we will spend a considerable amount of time searching the yard for hidden weapons in case they are planted for a pending fight. We do searches of inmates and guests in the visitor center to reduce the likelihood of anything changing hands that could potentially cause harm to others in the jail.

 

The LBS software has the ability to detect if an inmate is using the phone and talking about drugs. Case in point, one inmate called his brother and asked he sneak his parents prescription medication at the visitor center. We were able to meet the brother before he got into the visitor center and eliminate this from being a serious issue in the jail.

 

Customers Are Impressed With Securus Technologies

Securus Technologies provides technology in a way that has revolutionized the incarceration scene. These are being provided for civil as well as criminal justice in order to ensure public safety, and corrections.

 

There are several comments from their customers that come in the form of letters as well as email communications to Securus Technologies. All these are the prison as well as jail officials. These comments come from all across the United States. All these officials have the job of preventing crimes and even solving them. This is the only way to make the incarceration environment much safer for all.

 

Securus Technologies does not like to rest on its laurels. The appreciation it receives from its customers prompts them to develop new products or services to help the law enforcement officials to solve crimes. In fact, they are developing a new product or improving an existing one nearly every week. This is why Securus Technologies is able to provide the latest tech gadgets to its customers.

 

Securus Technologies is all about safety. They are thinking about how to protect and serve in the best possible way. They assist in cases by providing information from calls that are being made from these Facilities. It helps to identify the staff members who are corrupt and get search warrants against them. This way many persons have been arrested for introducing contraband inside the jails. All this leads to the jails being safe and the inmate-on-inmate crimes reducing too.

 

In addition, Securus Technologies is monitoring the calls being made insides Facilities. These give vital information with regard to alcohol being used by inmates, selling drugs inside the facility, getting access to various cellular devices and so on. There are a lot of suspicious conversations and threats and discussions about past crimes too. These are monitored and help in solving cases.

 

 

Securus Technologies and Its Role in Fighting Crime

Securus Technologies is a private contracting firm based in Dallas, Texas. The company offers a wide array of services including information management systems and parolee tracking. Securus Technologies released a sample of comments compiled from emails and letters that they had received from clients in October last year. The majority of these comments were from the people who were tasked with making the incarceration environment safer. The company has helped law enforcement and investigators to solve and prevent crimes through the information that they obtain from Securus’ products.

 

Rick Smith is the CEO and Chairman of Securus. He said that the company makes sure it develops a new product each week to help its clients. He stated that they received thousands of messages regarding their products and how they had helped to keep inmates and correctional facilities safer. One of the comments came from an investigator who said that the assistance of Securus on a case helped them to obtain a search warrant for a corrupt staff member. This led to the arrest of the person for possession of contraband. It would not have been possible without Securus.

 

Another comment congratulated the vendor for their commitment to improving public safety and reforming the incarceration environment. Many of the messages thanked Securus for their products and their continued service. An investigator also sent a comment giving official details of how the LBS Software has been instrumental in solving crimes. The official says that the sheriff’s department was able to recover millions of assets from the information that they gathered using the software. The investigator added that their job would have been tough without the software. Another comment also mentions the LBS services and how they had been enough to convince them to work with Securus. The official says that it was this technology that made Securus the leading jail phone provider in the nation.

 

 

Disputing Many Claims

Securus Technologies is a technology firm that is based in Dallas, Texas. The firm has been in business for three decades and creates technology for law enforcement and corrections facilities all across North America. Recently, a competitor to Securus Technologies put out a press release making many claims against the technology company. Global Tel Link, or GTL, has been a strong competitor to Securus Technologies and they currently have many ongoing disputes they are involved in.

 

Two days after the press release from GTL, Secures Technologies responded to the claims with their own press release. Securus Technologies took issue with six issues and stated their position on each. Many of the claims made by GTL had to do with patents and who has access to them. Patents are a vital part of the technology industry and many disputes come up over who can and can not use them.

 

GTL stated that there are disputed issues that are not patentable and that there are items that Securus Technologies cannot use due to who holds the patent.

Patent disputes do come up in the technology industry. Securus Technologies and GTL have many issues they are currently working on. Many of these have been taken to a court of law to get a final say on them. These lawsuits can take many months to resolve and only time will tell how all of this will play out once a final decision is reached.
