The Benefits of Technology in Prisons

The Story Of Robert Johnson

Recently, www.nbcmiami.com did an article about Robert Johnson. Robert Johnson is an individual who formally worked as a correctional officer in the Lee Correctional Institution in South Carolina. In 2010, Johnson was shot multiple times in his stomach at his home. This was an apparent act of retaliation. This act that was initiated by an inmate who called a hit on him from prison using a contraband cell phone. Robert Johnson had been working as a correctional officer for 15 years, and his job was to confiscate contraband from inmates. It appears that an inmate was upset because Johnson had intercepted a package that was originated from a gang, and it contained around $50,000 worth of contraband. Johnson was barely able to escape with his life, and the person who tried to kill him believed that he was dead.

 

Now, Johnson is working to keep cell phones out of prison completely. Every year, thousands of cell phones are confiscated from prisoner. These are cell phones that can be used to carry out horrific crimes outside of prison.

 

Phone Blocking Technology Is Needed In US prisons

The state of Georgia there was a horrific crime that was carried out on a nine-month-old baby. Kendarius Edwards was killed in his home in a murder that was orchestrated by three inmates who called out a hit on the baby because they were angry at his uncle. This crime shows the danger of cell phones in prison. Johnson now works for Securus Technologies. Securus Technologies is a company that uses technology to keep prisons safe. Securus Technologies uses a Wireless Containment System. This is a system that is able to stop phone calls made by inmates. It is not enough to just confiscate cell phones; it has been made clear that it is virtually impossible to be able to find all cell phones that are possessed by inmates. This Wireless Containment System is able to put up a cell phone network. This network stops any calls from dialing out from a cell phone. The antenna that is used for this wireless network can intercept any phone calls that are coming or going from the prison.

Securus Technologies Shares Real Customer Reviews

I am very intrigued by the developments in technology and how it is applied to every day life. Much of this is intrigued by what is around me: incorporation into my workplace, my gym, my home, etc. Securus Technologies is a large corporation headquartered in Dallas, Texas that specializes in a suite of prison security technology as well as inmate calling services. Although prison technology and security is a completely foreigh concept to me, the article outlined specific testimonials written in by real customers that shed light on issues I didn’t really know existed.

 

For example, one testimonial said that by using the cell phone monitoring service, the prison was able to find out there was a ring of contraband drugs, alcohol and other illegal activities going on within their walls. I wasn’t aware, but mobile phones themselves are contraband in prisons, but are smuggled in nearly as frequently as other contraband like drugs and guns. Securus Technologies has the capability to find cell phones that have been brought in illegally by tracing them. Not only that, but sometimes it is in the best use to not confinscate them right away and to find out what the inmate wanted to sneak the phone in for. For this, Securus also has the technology to turn off the wireless capabilities of a phone remotely, meaning it will have no internet connection. This could be incredibley damaging.

 

Finally, I was interested in one of the testimonials that talked about how innovative Securus technologies is. Their CEO said that typically not a week goes by where they don’t create or build onto a new development or new platform. One of the testimonials spoke directly to this fact.The person who wrote in thanked Securus for continuing to be on the cutting edge of prison technology and security.
