Securus Technologies is deploying life-saving anti-cell phone tech to nation’s prisons

Being a prison guard may not officially be in the top ten most dangerous professions in the country today. But that does not mean that it is a normal job. In fact, prison guards face some of the most extreme threats to their safety and that of their family of any job there is.

 

One of the most severe threats to the lives of the brave men and women who are tasked with keeping the nation’s prisons safe and the public safe from those housed there is the threat posed by organized prison gangs. As the story of one prison guard, Robert Johnson, illustrates, for many of the nation’s prison guards, the right to life and safety is not always a guaranteed perk of the job.

 

Illegal cell phones are as dangerous as a loaded gun

 

Robert Johnson had spent 15 years of his adult life working as a guard at one of Florida’s most notorious maximum-security prisons. Over that time, he had proven himself to be a capable and courageous officer, eventually being promoted to the prison’s SERT team, an abbreviation standing for Special Emergency Response Team. It was his job, as a member of this elite team, to conduct high-risk cell searches and seizures of contraband.

 

On one mission, Johnson uncovered a package containing an estimated $50,000 worth of heroin that had been slated for distribution within the prison by a powerful gang. The gang quickly uncovered what officers were responsible for the confiscation, getting Johnson’s name from an informant to the gang.

 

One morning, as Johnson was preparing to go to work, a gunman kicked down his front door and stormed into his house. Firing point blank, the hitman unloaded 6 shots directly into Johnson’s chest and abdomen. Over the next month, Johnson clung tenuously to life. Eventually, he began the slow process to recovery. Today, after 23 surgeries and untold pain, he is back to feeling almost himself. The miraculous recovery is testament to his willpower and tenacity. In fact, Johnson is now back at work within the prison system.

 

Except now, he is acting as a salesman for Securus Technologies, the nation’s leading provider of inmate communications and prison security services. Johnson is selling a technology developed by Securus called the Wireless Containment System. It is almost certain that the cell phone used to order the hit that nearly claimed Johnson’s life would have been rendered inoperative, had the WCS technology been deployed in the prison where Johnson worked.

 

Now, he is making the rounds in prisons across the country, getting the word out that WCS is capable of totally eliminating the threat of unauthorized cell phones falling into the hands of gangs. Johnson believes that this technology has the potential to save thousands of lives.

 

Exemplary Vision Of Securus Technologies

This is one company that is a recipient of thousands of letters as well as emails. Most of them are expressing their appreciation regarding what they build and how it is helping to keep the society safe. I am well aware how Securus Technologies is keeping inmates, their families, as well as the parolees safe. Building safety into everything is a part of the DNA of the people there. They feel that it is their duty and honor to protect as well as serve.

 

Securus Technologies has been preferred by customers over others for preventing and solving crimes by making use of technology.

 

They come back saying that the assistance Securus Technologies on various cases has helped them a lot. The phone calls are recorded. The data obtained from these phone calls helps in getting a search warrant for those staff members who are corrupt. Due to this, a person could be arrested for introducing contraband into the Facility. This was something that could be achieved only due to the help provided by Securus Technologies. Besides making the place safer, it helped to nail the culprit also so that such things do not happen in future. This is exactly the reason why the inmate-on-inmate crimes have reduced in a big way.

 

All this becomes possible due to call monitoring by Securus Technologies. The jail authorities can playback this recording. It gives them information about alcohol use by inmates, drug selling as well as drugs being used in the facility. Next, they have managed to get information about accessing a cellular device, and so on. The other issues inside the facility can include threats, money being transferred, or even some past criminal incident that may have involved shots being fired. Or else, there can be some civilian who may be selling prescription drugs at some discount which may be not allowed by law.
