Many of the corrections officer and law enforcement officers believe that the use of contraband interdiction technology can be revolutionary. It would help in reducing the crimes inside and outside of the prison. The use of contraband phones have led to many deaths in the recent years, and the crimes related to contraband phones usage has been increasing lately. Securus Technologies is the only company that has successfully delivered the most efficient contraband interdiction technology on the planet. The company installed their proprietary contraband interdiction technology in the eight facilities they have been servicing and were able to restrict nearly 1.7 million illegal communications within a year.
Securus Technologies has been one of the top companies in the correctional sphere and has helped transform the sector entirely. The use of contraband phones needs to be restricted to ensure that the inmates are safe, and so are the law enforcement officers. Recently, how easy it is to find contraband phones inside the prison was highlighted when one of the inmates used the contraband phones to shoot a nearly three minutes video brandishing a knife and posted it on a social media network. The video went viral and sent shock waves across the country as to how strict the security is in these prisons after all. It is this video that led the FCC to allow and expedite the use of contraband interdiction technology in more and more prison in the days to come and offload the burden of paperwork and documentation.
The use of contraband phones is done by the criminals to use their extended criminal network outside of the prison to control the criminal activities. It also helps in engaging in many other types of illegal activities without the law enforcement agencies know about it. With contraband interdiction technology offered by Securus Technologies known as the wireless containment solutions, the contraband phones would be useless inside the prison. When wireless containment solutions are activated, the contraband phones would not be able to get the signal from its carriers and thus, won’t be able to make or receive calls. It is full-proof technology that Securus Technologies has developed after years of research and has also invested more than $40 million in developing it.
Securus Technologies believes that with the help of wireless containment solutions, the use of contraband phones inside the prison would be eliminated and the law enforcement officers would no longer become the targets due to murder calls made from inside the jails. Robert Johnson was targeted for a hit and was shot six times in chest and stomach due to the murder call made from inside the prison using contraband phones. Robert Johnson is now a security consultant with Securus Technologies and provides his inputs on what can be done to make the wireless containment solution more potent and durable.
