Securus Technologies, Making a Positive Impact for All Parties in the Correctional Facility World

Securus Technologies specializes in inmate and correctional facilities services. Their primary focus in on telecommunications and monitoring. Providing a beneficial service to keep everyone safe, they’re constantly seeking to develop technology to improve the inmates’ lives and safety. Wireless containment systems or WCS is a service that blocks calls and text messages from being sent from contraband devices. The technology has been tested, and to date, almost two million unauthorized calls have been intercepted.

 

If you’re wondering why this is a concern, there are a few incidents that support this measure. A former corrections officer, Robert Johnson, was shot multiple times due to a call being able to connect from the facility. A nine-month-old child was also killed as the result of a call being allowed. The monitoring of calls is a service that Securus Technologies provides, and it has been proven effective.

 

Looking like a miniature cell tower, this technology kills calls and texts as soon as they’re attempting to connect. This technology has been available for some time now, and Johnson is pushing to have it be a legal requirement by lobbying about the cause. Had the technology been in place, both incidents wouldn’t have occurred, providing the technology was functioning at its full capacity.

 

Securus has been monitoring inmate calls and chats for quite some time. Another benefit of using this company is that they monitor calls and even those under house arrest. These services alone have been used to investigate and prosecute crimes. Even correctional facility officers are monitored to thwart any potentially hazardous situations.

 

While Securus primarily focuses on telecommunications they’ve acquired numerous businesses along the way. In recent history, JPay has been added to the mix. This service, which primarily focuses on financial transactions has developed technology for the inmates. Offering them electronics, such as tablets, allow them to access educational and other materials such as books to enrich themselves.

 

While WCS may not solve every problem inside and outside of correctional facilities, the technology looks promising. As Robert Johnson continues his journey to make a difference, these monitoring systems may be soon required in many facilities by law. Hopefully, there won’t be any other lessons learned prior to getting the systems in place in more locations around the country and beyond.

How Securus Technologies is Keeping Us Safe

While technology companies have become an incredibly prominent sector in pushing America to the forefront of tech, I don’t often think about how important the type of technology is that benefits me every day but that I will never have any interaction with. I recently read an article on PR Newswire about Securus Technologies that showcased comments from users of the successful technology that intrigued me.

 

Securus Technologies focuses on providing state of the art technology for prisons across the company. Securus is contracted to provide services to over 2,000 Correctional Facilities in the United States and in Canada. Securus is an innovator and the largest provider of parolee tracking and detainee communications and it pioneered a new technology that would seek out and control cell phone communications from contraband cell phones through its “Cell Defender” technology. This technology also ensures that cell phones are completely unable to connect to any wireless networks through its Wireless Containment Solution technology. These technologies made me realize how serious the issues of contraband cell phone use in prisons were and how important having technology in place that could prevent them is.

 

Securus is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and has several other regional offices throughout the country. The company has over 500 employees and continues to grow as digital threats increase in prison systems.

 

The PR Newswire article made me realize the tangible affect have this technology was to the prison systems. For example, one comment noted that through Securus’ technology they were able to gather information from phone calls to find a corrupt staff member and arrest them. Another testimonial talked to how call monitoring enabled prison staff to find and break up a ring that was facilitating alcohol use among inmates, the selling of drugs and overall threats and violence. Finally, a testimonial from one correctional facility noted that not only have they seen a huge benefit from the technology but that Securus was continually evolving and revolutionizing their products to meet growing threats in the prison system.

 

Securus Technologies Innovates Deterrent To Keep Us All Safer

I think we all worry about crime from time to time. There is this ever-present fear that somebody is going to perpetrate crime against us and that we will be helpless. That’s why it feels good to hear that there are more and more deterrents to crime being installed into our society. Technology is one of these deterrents. With the advent of DNA evidence, people are much less likely to get away with crimes. Same goes for cameras being in everybody’s pockets. Cell phone video has helped convict many criminals recently.

 

That’s why I am so jazzed to hear about the latest innovation from Securus Technologies. I guess you can think of Securus Technologies as a telephone company. It is not the kind of Telephone Company that you would contracts to service your home or office. The company only deals with government run prisons and jails. This is the company that provides all prisoners with their telephone services when they want to call outside of the prison.

 

Since the company handles all of these phone calls, they go the extra mile and record every single phone conversation. They save all of these phone conversations and an accessible database. They then allow police officers to sift through all of this information using a proprietary software that will really blow your mind.

 

All the companies to do is get his hands on a recording of a criminal’s voice. Securus Technologies then feeds this voice into the software where it matches up that voice to any phone call in the database. This allows police officers to get a bunch of information out of these criminals that they can use to make arrests and ensure convictions. It is another wonderful, innovative way to deter criminals from committing crimes because they know they will be caught.

 

Talk Fusion Is Never Rattled

An admirable trait of a company like Talk Fusion is the fact that they are never rattled. They have been around for a decade now that it is 2017, and nothing has ever rattled them or caught them by surprise. That is because they know what they have in their all-in-one video communications provider. That is not to say they are arrogant, smug, or think too highly of themselves. They are confident. There is a big difference between being cocky and being confident. A company has to be confident. After all, if they don’t believe in the product, how do they expect the customers to believe in it?

 

Bob Reina and Talk Fusion believe it in because they have heard from the customers directly. They have heard the success stories. They have heard from people that have used Talk Fusion and have gotten a lot out of it. They have seen it improve their lives in so many ways. It has opened doors for them and allowed them to live life on their own terms. That is a powerful thing when one really sits down and thinks about it. It allows people to regain their life again and start living happily.

 

When someone is happy, anything is possible out there for them. Nothing can stand in their way and nothing can prevent them from enjoying the little things in life. Talk Fusion has video emails, video chats, video newsletters, and video conferences. That is how someone not only starts up a business, but it is how they stay in business and grow the business to where they can quit their day job and this can be their everyday job. They have done this by reaching for excellence and always achieving it. This was proven to be true by the Technology Marketing Corporation, which is a corporation that hands out awards when they see companies that are really taking things seriously and making a special product

 

They won two awards in 2016 from them and the recent award is one that is near and dear to their heart and that is the 2016 Communications Solutions Product of The Year Award.
