Securus Technologies, one of the nation’s leading technology providers to law enforcement and correctional facilities, recently released stories of how their customers use their technology solutions to prevent or solve crime. As prison officials shed light on crime in the incarceration environment, it’s interesting to see how technology aids in apprehending criminals behind bars, and in one case, a corrupt staff member who was sneaking in contraband.
Securus, which is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and has an A+ rating, provides jail and prison staff tools to monitor conversations when they receive complaints about harassment inside facilities. In one case, an inmate call revealed one person telling another what to say when questioned by the police. Had investigators not heard the conversation, they might have believed the witness’ statement as the person who would make the statement had a clean record.
Providing technology to approximately 2,600 jails and prisons, Securus Technologies is one of the leading technology providers, especially since the company has a wide range of inmate communication and monitoring solutions available, including data analytics, voice biometric software and more. Securus has enabled law enforcement and corrections officials to use advanced technology to fight, and even prevent, crime, which is due in part to the $605 million investment the company has made in research and acquisitions in the last four years.
