Fighting Prison Violence with Securus Technologies

Over the last couple years me and my fellow corrections officers have seen a steady rise in gang violence in our prison. One of the contributing factors is the escalation of drugs and other contraband getting into the jails each year. Inmates will tell you that they can score just about anything illegal they need in jail easier than they could when they were roaming the streets. That alone was reason enough for me and my fellow officers to make a huge effort to stop contraband at the choke-point this year.

 

Securus Technologies is the leader in prison inmate call monitoring systems, having their units in over 2,500 jails around the country and growing. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Rick Smith, says that his employee base of 1,000 employees are all working hard for one objective, keeping the world safe. We decided we were going to use this company and their phone monitoring software to help cut down on the violence in our prison as quickly as possible. Little did any of us realize at the time exactly how essential this resource would be in our efforts to stop the flow of contraband into the prison.

 

Once all the officers in the prison were able to better understand how the LBS software worked, we got right to it. Within days we were able to pick up on some interesting chatter from an inmate who was requesting family to sneak in drugs to him on visiting day. On another call we discovered exactly how the inmates got their drugs and how they were hiding things in their cells each time we did an inspection. It only took us a few weeks to collect information to collect more contraband than we did in several months last year without the new Securus Technologies inmate call system.
