Efforts by Securus Technologies to Prevent Crimes Inside Prisons
Written by admin on April 20, 2017
The American prison industry is constantly evolving. Changes are always being introduced to cope with the influx of inmates. Overcrowding in prisons has made it next-to-impossible for the correctional facilities staff to monitor the rehabilitation process. Securus Technology saw this shortfall as an opportunity and went for it.
Thousands of Emails Received
Securus recently published testimonials and feedback received from their clients notably, correctional officers, law enforcement officers and the prisoners themselves. The goal of the study was to come up with efficient tech-based solutions to reduce criminal activities within the prisons. The CEO and Chairman of Securus Technologies, Rick Smith, made it crystal clear that they had observed due protocol in protecting the secret identities of the respondents to their questionnaires. According to Rick the number one agenda of Securus is making prisons safe and secure.
Corrupt Prison Guard Busted!
This post goes ahead to list recent successes made possible by the tech-solutions provided by this enterprise. The first comment details a corrupt prison staff member being reported and then arrested the following morning following the tip. The emails curated also reported incidences of liquor, tobacco, prescription drugs and other contraband being sneaked into prisons. The authorities are still pursuing those investigations.
Securus Saves Lives
No prisoner willingly volunteers to give away on their mates. Doing this is tantamount to signing your death warrant as the other inmates will undoubtedly gang up and deal with the tipster. Corrections officers are also implicit in some of the crimes, therefore reporting to them makes not much difference. That’s where the Securus Technologies comes to save the day. The products offered by the firm are discreet, and they can be used in an investigation without the adverse ripple effects mentioned.
