The wireless system of the world is a system of technologies we don’t get a clear glimpse of in our lives. These technologies are founded on what’s possible through signals that travel from one antenna to another. The entire system in place, though highly advanced, is infiltrated at times. What’s infiltrated are a number of agencies, phone calls and data centers in the USA.
These locations, businesses and private facilities are part of the entire development of society. They must be protected from illegal activity and what the normal access to technology makes possible in the hands of every citizen. The lives lost by having access to such a large technology infrastructure are not to be taken lightly.
Why Protecting Our Signals Matter
Wireless signals create a large network of people who haven’t imagined you and I as using “the other side.” The size of our system forces Securus to make one of their own that’s just as big and that can take the place of wireless systems within any location. By working as the sole wireless system in a specific place, all the contact signals that enter and exist are caught.
It’s important to protect these signals because they are a part of the lives we live. What’s contained in the private sector puts together a number of important facets that operate public life. The information, resources and energy components remain protected under the work of the private sector. This sector is one that expands daily and remains open to public access.
A Better Look At Security That Matters
Security in the private sector brings together all of the elements of a James Bond movie but without the flash and gold. The real work of private industry safety begins with an understanding of the facilities to be managed and what’s held within them. The wireless signals that a 13-year-old kid has access to is the same signal that can take lives.
Our private sector must remain protected by putting together the right security measures. The work of Securus Technologies expands to enable complete control of wireless data and functions. The wide platform in Securus’ hands is reaching over 2,600 U.S. contracts. That number continues to rise with the agency’s impeccable service.
When the local prison was meeting with Securus Technologies, little did any of the local officers realize at the time how instrumental this change would be. Trying to solve crimes in a crowded metropolis is hard enough, and with more inmates getting shorter sentences because of overcrowded conditions, me and my team of fugitive hunters were seeing a rise in activity too.
Securus Technologies has developed a monitoring system used in over 2,488 jails around the country for being able to listen more intently to when inmates are on the jail phones. Instead of a group of officers having to sit in a call center and listen carefully to those conversations, now the LBS software does all the work more thoroughly. CEO Richard Smith of Securus Technologies, says his system has given officers the ability to get ahead of potential trouble instead of always having to react and let the bad guys get that crucial upper hand.
This was the case when a recent crime spree had my team all scratching our heads as to who and how were these individuals able to get away with the crimes and never leave any evidence for officers to find. It wasn’t until one of their own was arrested on some unrelated charge that we got to see how powerful the Securus Technologies system really is.
The inmate was one the phone speaking to friends and mentioned something about those crimes that triggered the LBS software to alert my team. The inmate gave details only those involved would know, and his call lead us to a safe house where stolen goods were housed as well as the rest of the gang committing those crimes. Thanks to the alert, we took a half-dozen dangerous criminals off the street and returned the stolen property to the rightful owners.
If you wanted to guess what was the most dangerous job in the country, hands down I would tell you that it has to be prison guards. The jail that I work has more violent gang members than all the other California prisons combined. These inmates have little regard for authority and for each other, so hurting anyone in their way has become a way of life for most of them. Me and my fellow officers work hard every day to maintain peace and keep everyone safe.
In the past we made use of a few techniques that would curb prison crime, and they took a huge group efforts. For one, we search each inmate and guest before they can interact in the visitor center. We do cell inspections daily, looking for anything the inmates can use to get the upper hand on use officers or one another. We even used to listen to the inmates on then phone to see if they were discussing drugs, weapons, or other contraband.
This year things got easier for us in one respect. Securus Technologies installed a call monitoring system in our facility that would do the work of many officers and pay very close attention to what the inmates were discussing when they made their calls. The LBS software is the key, able to monitor all their calls and instantly recognize potential trouble and alert us on the spot.
Securus Technologies is based in the state of Texas, has a thousand loyal employees, and they work towards an objective of keeping this planet safe. This year we have been able to stop more violent outbreaks just by getting the jump on fights, hidden weapons, and drug usage. If the system can identify contraband, we now have the ability to take swift action and eliminate any potential problem.
Securus Technologies is a leading provider of communications platforms for correctional institutions, law enforcement agencies, and safety organizations. Currently, over 2,200 correctional institutions are served as well as over 1,200,000 inmates.
Securus provides different communications platforms such as full and limited phone services, so families will be able to keep in touch with their loved ones who are incarcerated. Different payment plans such as debit plans, collect, direct bill and others make it convenient to tailor a plan that fits the needs of the participant. There is also jail voicemail, email and money transfer capabilities.
Recently, GTL, a major competitor has made public announcements that they have facilities and rates that are much better than Securus and that people should switch their usage from Securus to GTl. Consequently, Securus has offered to have a public challenge, to be judged by an independent source to prove the claims that GTL is making to be false. There are no better rates in the industry, and with the broad reach of Securus programs, there is no better service.
With all the noise and bravado put forth by GTL when things got down to the wire, GTL politely bowed out of the challenge and decided not to compete. This is what Securus thought would happen because GTL has very limited capabilities in comparison to Securus.
Customers who have switched over to Securus from GTL have overwhelmingly stated that they prefer the services that are offered by Securus by a 3 to 1 margin over the GTL services. Securus has enjoyed an excellent reputation due to its investment in the best possible technology and the award-winning call center that helps customers get where they want to go. For the best institutional communications, it is always Securus that brings home the best in performance and quality.
