Securus Technologies is a corrections firm that is dedicated to reviving and modernizing the corrections space. Since 1986, when Securus Technologies was established with the merger of two of the premier telecom companies, the company has diversified in the correctional sector vastly. It is one of the most well-established and deep-rooted corrections firms in the industry, and it continues to contribute heavily to the corrections and investigative technology sector.
Some of the technologies developed by Securus Technologies has created waves in the industry and is in use by thousands of the correctional facilities and law enforcement agencies. Rick Smith, CEO of Securus Technologies, says that security and prevention of crime are at the core of the Securus’s business. The company thrives on making correctional facilities safer and giving the inmates as well as the officers the technologies they need to stay safe and perform better.
The wireless containment system developed by Securus Technologies has helped the correctional agencies to ensure that the contraband phones are rendered completely useless and ineffective in making any communication from inside the prison. With the activation of the wireless containment system, the contraband phones would not be able to make any calls or receive any calls. Securus Technologies has collaborated with the commercial networks in shaping the wireless containment system possible.
The commercial networks agreed not to make or receive calls where the wireless containment solution would be activated. Securus Technologies has researched for many months to make wireless containment system as useful as it is. In the first phase of testing that took place in the eight facilities where Securus Technologies serves, the wireless containment system managed to stop more than 1.7 million communication attempts.
Securus Technologies is confident that the results would be the same in the other correctional facilities as well where the wireless containment system would be installed. Securus Technologies has ensured that this technology is full proof and doesn’t let any unaccounted for communication attempt pass through unnoticed. Also, Securus Technologies has assured that it takes the expertise of the ex-corrections officers into account.
Robert Johnson is one of the ex-corrections officers who is working with Securus Technologies as a consultant. He has also helped in making wireless containment system possible. As a correctional officer, Robert Johnson’s primary responsibility was to track, follow, and catch the contraband packages inside the prison. He used to be an expert with that, and it is what led to him becoming the target of many criminals as well. The achievements of Robert Johnson as a corrections officer led him to be shot six times in his home in the presence of his family. Since then, Robert Johnson has vowed to ensure that the contraband phones do not make it inside the prison.
