Securus customers rave over new crime prevention technologies

In America’s prisons, fighting crime is one of the most important tasks that guards and administrators have set before them. Many people do not appreciate the extent to which criminal activity poses a threat to the nation’s prisons. But without the hard-working men and women who guard these penal institutions, problems, such as organized criminal gangs, would quickly rise to pose a serious threat to both the institutions and the public at large.

 

Securus Technologies is the nation’s leading inmate communications firm. Over the last 10 years, it has also branched out into providing crime-fighting tools that harness the latest in high-tech and cutting edge methods. These tools are put into the hands of guards and administrators, allowing for a much safer prison environment.

 

One of these tools, which Securus Technologies has been developing over the last decade, is its Stingray technology. This technology is derived directly from systems that were developed for urban warfare in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Originally, there was a need to intercept and monitor enemy communications on a wide variety of cellular devices across the country cellular networks. These technologies proved to be an enormous success, giving U.S. troops the upper hand in intelligence-gathering and tactical maneuvering, always staying a few steps ahead of the enemy.

 

While many critics complain about the increasing militarization of stateside police forces, there’s no denying the similarity of threat types faced by U.S soldiers abroad and those workers who are charged with guarding and keeping safe America’s prisons. Organized criminal gangs pose one of the largest threats to penal institutions across the country. The way in which these gangs communicate and carry out their criminal activities is through the use of illicit cellular devices. Using Securus’ Stingray system, prison staff is able to interdict contraband cellular devices, keeping America’s prisons safe from the threat of organized criminal enterprises.

A New Win in the Fight against Contraband Wireless Devices – Securus Technologies’

Exciting Update

Criminals are capable of continuing their criminal operations behind bars. All they need is a wireless device to do things such as directing their counterparts or issuing threats against witnesses. However, this will no longer be possible thanks to the new Wireless Containment Solution Installation by Securus Technologies, Inc.

 

Actionable Monitoring

Many service providers are capable of identifying cell phone signals, but they cannot control or regulate these signals. Securus Technologies made a breakthrough in this one aspect with its new Wireless Containment Solution Installation.

For starters, this installation collects all information about wireless signals and provides enough data to aid investigators in intelligence. It is also capable of restricting unauthorized wireless signals, unlike most other providers who are yet to develop the technology. As such, it can bar unauthorized communication between inmates and the outside world.

 

According to founder and CEO of Securus Technologies Richard Smith, correctional customers say that contraband cell phones present the biggest threat from inmates. As such, this new development is seen as a step forward in boosting security in prisons and other correctional facilities. Henceforth, only authorized signals in authorized sections of prisons will be capable of sending and receiving data.

Richard Smith was keen to commend states for taking steps towards addressing this previously undermined threat. He noted that the new focus on this problem would help prisons improve security not only within its walls but also outside by curtailing prisoners’ communications. He also promised that his team of technicians would be working diligently to install the systems in all their clients’ prisons and invited more potential clients to take advantage of the company’s advanced technologies. He also promised greater developments in the coming future.

 

Securus Technologies has been effective in keeping out contraband goods and exposing corrupted officers and inmates. This new update will help make up for any shortcomings in keeping contraband cell phones out. Additionally, its sophistication will help locate these cell phones once their signals are identified and analyzed.
