Shot 6 Times and Still Working To Put An End To Contraband Cell Phones In Prisons

Learning first hand from his own personal experience, Robert Johnson knows how important it is to keep cell phones away from inmates in prison. In 2010, Robert was working for the corrections department when he stopped a package from being delivered. This package would be the start to a difficult life for Robert. After stopping the package from being handed over to a well established prison gang, two weeks following the day when he stopped the package from being delivered, someone kicked in his door to his home and attempted to kill him.

 

Trying to protect his family from harm, Robert took to stepping away from the room where his wife was asleep at. In the attempt to stop the gunman, Robert was shot 6 times at a close range. In the 15 years that Robert had been working for the prison systems and stopping many packages of contraband making its way into the inmates hands, he had crossed the wrong person.

 

The package that was supposed to be given to the affiliated gang member had a value of more than $50,000 dollars.

 

After being shot 6 times in the chest and stomach, Robert was taken to the hospital and his family and friends were told that he would not make it and that they should make arrangements in the case that he doesn’t pull through. A chaplain spoke to Robert’s wife and prepared her for when he passed. While in the operating room, Robert died twice on the operating table and fought his way back.

 

An inmate who had been recently released was later tried and convicted on the attempted murder charge. The prison gang had made contact with the released inmate and was paid $6000 on a prepaid debit card to kill Robert.

 

Johnson is not the only person who has been shot for crossing an inmate. An order was taken on a baby who was only 9 months old, being held by his mother in Georgia. The inmates had arranged for the baby to be shot because the uncle to the child did something that the inmates did not approve of. Through contraband phones inside of the prison, they were able to arrange the hit.

 

Since being shot and finding out about the nine month old baby, Robert has helped Securus Technologies to put an end to cell phones inside of prisons. Through Securus Technologies, technology has found a way to keep cell phones inside of prisons to be recorded when accessing the mobile network in a prison. The phone will register with the number that it is calling from and the number it is calling. From there, they are able to shut the phone down or allow the calls to go through. Once they know the number and can distinguish what the inmate is calling for, they can choose to drop the call.

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.

Securus Technology Dedicated to offering The Best to Their Clients

Communication is essential in our day to day life’s activities. Individuals in prisons were once getting the challenge of how they can communicate with their loved ones, Secures technology noticed the gap and took responsibility for them to fill it and provide communication services to the correctional institutions.

In June 2016, Securus Technologies which is a leading company in the provision of civil, criminal and justice technologies resolutions for public safety, monitoring, investigations, and corrections, issued corrections to GTL Press release that the firm released on June 7, 2016. Securus found the press release that was issued by GTL to be misleading and inaccurate. Some of the allegations included; GTL claims that Securus has been suing them since 2011 on patent issues and they have been accusing them even in the media, claims that are designed to pressure them and settle their disputes because will favor Secures. On the other hand, Securus Technology corrected the allegations saying, we have always made efforts to reach GTL’s claim in an intelligent and mature way to accept financial arrangements with those companies that use our patent technology without a license.

Securus Technology we believe that GTL is aware that the patent often takes a long time and cost million of dollars, but as a company, we will continue to defend our organization from GTL’s attack and state our patent in response to GTL’s current approach.
