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.
Hearing that there was a need for special technology for the correction facilities to stop wireless crimes from occurring, Securus Technologies began their journey on creating just the right one. There were other public safety companies that tried to, but they could not complete the project. Thus, the technology called the Wireless Containment Solution was created by Securus Technologies. The technology stops the crimes from occurring because secure the wireless networks, and they catch the inmates that are using cell phones to commit illegal activities. The facilities are very grateful to the company for creating the Wireless Containment, and they are having a lot of success with it. The company is very proud to have been a part of this endeavor, and glad that they could create the technology that worked. Protecting the public is what they are all about, and the more that they do, the more they intend to create.
In an effort to allow the public to know more about what the company does, they have invited them to a presentation and tour of their business center in Dallas, TX. The people can see what the latest technologies are, how they work, and why they are necessary for the public’s safety. The people will understand why Securus Technologies is the leader in the public safety field, and why they are known and respected all over the world for their work. People will want to keep up-to-date with their latest creations, and how they will benefit all people.
