Securus Technologies Develops A Powerful Weapon That Deters Illegal Prison Cellphone Communications January 10, 2018

Life in the U.S. correction system is nothing like life outside of the razor-sharp fences that keep prisoners isolated from the rest of society. Prison live a mundane life filled with zoo-like interactions that create an incarcerated social bond that few people understand. The perks prisoners receive in prison are nothing to write home about. In fact, prison perks are basic needs that remind prisoners that decent behavior is one of the most important characteristics of a normal life. But some prisoners never learn the lessons that prison officials put in play on a daily basis. The hardened criminals, and the gang members, still like to break the rules. They like to find ways to complicate the lives of prison officials on a daily basis, and one way prisoners do that is by using contraband cellphones.



Smuggling a cellphone into a prison isn’t uncommon. Drugs and cellphones are the two biggest weapons prisoners have behind bars. A cellphone in the hands of a gang member is a lethal weapon. Gang member communication with their homeboys on the outside and the result of those interactions can mean more death and destruction on the streets of American cities. No matter how hard prison officials try to stop cellphone smuggling it continues at an alarming rate. Outside companies that work with correction facilities try to help stop contraband, but those companies have little success. But Securus Technologies, the prison communication provider for correction facilities across the country, has finally developed a solution to illegal cellphone use in prisons.



Securus Technologies has a system that can shut down all illegal prison calls. Securus calls the system “the Wireless Containment System.” When prisons use the Securus Wireless Containment System, 100 percent of the illegal cellphone calls never connect as long as the system is on. The feedback that is coming from prison officials around the country is all positive. Inmates who like to threaten public officials or send messages to gang members on the outside never happen. One prison official said the Securus Wireless Containment System is playing an important role in protecting the public. Another prison official thinks Securus is helping sheriff departments stop the flow of drugs and illegal cash when those departments have the system up and running.



The Securus Wireless Containment System is a valuable asset in the recovery of stolen property, according to law enforcement departments that use the system or are testing the system for future use. Securus Technologies has a reputation for helping correction facilities function effectively when it comes to legal telephone communication, video calls, and video visits. But this new cellphone containment system is cutting edge technology that will bring more order to prisoners who continue to defy prison system rules.

Why Dangerous Prisons Need Securus Technologies November 4, 2017

Most people are completely unaware how dangerous the conditions are inside the local prisons for officers working each day. Not only are me and all my fellow officers significantly outnumbered, the inmates are getting frustrated due to overcrowding. Packed in cells like animals, these inmates feel they have to lash out at authority to get a point across. Rather than go to work and hope for the best, we have embraced technology and finally have the ability to take back control of the facility.


Securus Technologies is a company that manufactures call monitoring software now being used in thousands of prisons around the country. The technology is so advanced that it can scan calls the inmates are making and identify chatter concerning drugs, weapons, or anything contraband related that could be a problem in a jail.


The LBS software simply alerts officers who are able to take action long before that could become a potential treat to anyway trapped behind those jail walls each day. The mission of Securus Technologies is to make the world a safer place, something each of my fellow officers live by each day.


To help show how effective this technology can be in a crowded jail, we only need to look at a few instances that happened this week. An inmate was mentioning to his friends on the phone how his gang is planning to take down a rival member in the yard with weapons they made. That incident was taken care of before it happened. An inmate was bragging to his dad about doing drugs in his cell, we moved that inmate and confiscated his contraband.


There was even an instance where one inmate was telling his little sister how to hide drugs from officers so she could pass them to him when she came to the fail on visiting day.
