The use of contraband phones inside the prison has cost lives for far too many years. Even after rigorous checks and security measures, there have been ways in which the inmates can sneak in contraband phones. The use of contraband phones gives the inmates the right to call whoever they want without authorization, and most of the times it is used to control illegal activities from inside the prison. Even though many other companies have tried building technology to limit the use of contraband phones inside the prison, it is only Securus Technologies that has been able to develop a successful, fully-functional, approved, and tested contraband interdiction technology.
Securus Technologies knows and understand that the use of contraband phones inside the prison can be dangerous, and have been after developing a technology to control its use. The contraband interdiction technology that the company has named the wireless containment solutions is a highly efficient technology and has been approved by FCC as well. The FCC has announced that it would be trying everything possible to ensure that the paperwork and documentation for the installation of WCS in the correctional facilities are reduced so that the installation process is expedited. As the video made from a contraband phone inside the prison recently went viral on the internet, the law enforcement agencies, as well as the authorities, are careful as to what can be done to stop the use of contraband phones inside the prison.
The wireless containment solution designed by Securus Technologies is primarily to ensure that the contraband phones’ use is eliminated from the correctional sphere. As difficult as it may sound, former corrections officer such as Robert Johnson feel that with the use of contraband interdiction technology such as WCS by Securus Technologies, the use of contraband phones can be eliminated entirely. In the eight correctional facilities where Wireless Containment solutions were tried, it managed to stop over 1.7 million illegal communications with ease. When the inmates get to use the contraband phones, it becomes easier for them to control their criminal activities outside the prison. Robert Johnson, one of the former corrections officers as mentioned above, was made a target and was shot six times by a criminal through an order he got from inside the prison using a contraband phone.
The use of contraband phone puts everyone in danger, and it is in the best interest of everyone to ensure contraband phones are kept away from the prison facilities. Securus Technologies is dedicated to not only installing wireless containment solutions in as many correctional facilities as possible but is also ready to invest in upgrading it to changing times and demands continually. Securus Technologies has so far spent over $40 million in developing WCS and is prepared to invest more to perfect the system.
