Helping Tighten Security in Prison with Securus Technologies

When the inmates in our jail started getting disorderly, me and my fellow officers knew we had to make changes to our routine or we would be subject to serious threats. Inmates are having to deal with severe overcrowded conditions, and when they can not take those conditions, they lash out at other inmates, officers, guests, staff, and anyone that has to conduct business inside the jail. Priority one this year has been securing our facility so that everyone is safe again and we can get back to running this facility as in the past.

 

In our hunt for resources to make this facility safer, we came across Securus Technologies. This company has a stellar reputation, already responsible for making jails around the country safer by installing their inmate call monitoring systems. Over 3,600 units later, we decided to see if that call monitoring system could help us to get a hold on this violence issue, at this point we really had nothing to lose. The company is based in the states right in the heart of Texas, and all thousand Securus Technologies employees have a single objective they work towards, making the world a safer place for all to live.

 

Once we had the Securus Technologies call monitoring system installed and the LBS software began monitoring those calls, we began to see a huge decrease in the violent outbreaks in our jail. This is because with the help of the monitoring system, we can start removing drugs and weapons from our facility and intercept instances where inmates are going to cause harm to others. When inmates are on the jail phones and talking about selling drugs, acquiring drugs, making weapons, or getting in fights with rival gang members, we can take the action needed on the spot to make things safer for us all.
