Securus Technologies shared an interesting article recently. The article highlighted quotes from the company’s actual clients. The quotes detailed exactly how correctional institutes and law enforcement use the technology to prevent crime. While prison technology isn’t exactly the most fascinating subject, I did enjoy learning a little more about how dangerous cell phones can be when used behind bars. Literally almost any crime can be committed from prison if the inmate has access to a cell phone.
Some of the quotes were very specific to certain instances. For example, one testimonial talked about how a local Sheriff’s office was able to recover illegal assets using Securus Technologies. They used Securus’ location based software to track down the criminals who had been hiding a large store of drugs and firearms and arrest them. Using location based software surely cut down on the amount of time and energy that was needed to track down and recover the illegal assets.
Another quote talked about how a correctional institute uses Securus Technologies to uncover just what exactly happened when an inmate accuses someone of assault. They could be accusing another inmate or one of the corrections officers of assault. Securus Technologies allows the correctional facility to learn exactly what happened and who was at fault. This also likely saves a great deal of time and energy for the people who work at the correctional institute.
Another quote cited Securus’ reporting data as a great deal of help in being proactive at preventing contraband in their institute. Securus is known for its great deal of helpful reporting data that can be used in a variety of ways, depending on what the person or institute needs it for.
The article shed a lot of light on how important it is for correctional facilities to have the technology they need to prevent crime inside prison walls.
