There are many companies that have been trying to develop the contraband interdiction technology for long, but one of the companies that have been able to achieve developing advanced wireless containment solutions is Securus Technologies. The company has been around since 1986 and has developed many high-end systems for the correctional facilities, which has helped in making the correctional sector, safer and more secure. The company also leads in providing highly advanced and affordable inmate communication services, which helps the inmates to stay in contact with the outside world. The new wireless containment system that the company has developed would help the correctional facilities to keep the contraband phones away. It is highly needed to keep the prisons safe and ensure the crime rate is low.
Securus Technologies has developed wireless containment solutions recently after many years of research. In some of the prison facilities that Securus Technologies serves, wireless containment solution was tried and tested. It was found that the wireless containment solution was able to stop more than around 1.7 million calls to go through. To put an end to such illegal communications is necessary from inside the prison as it can mean more crimes outside as well as inside the prison. Securus Technologies has also got a word from FCC that they would try and expedite the process to install wireless containment solutions in more prison facilities in the years to come. Securus Technologies has helped in the development of the many different types of correctional technologies over the years, and wireless containment solutions are one of the newest additions to its portfolio.
A few years back I had read an incident report where a correctional officer was attacked by a person who was hired by an inmate. I later came to know that he was Robert Johnson who worked with prison and had dedicated his life to the prison work. He spent hours trying to get tips about illegal drugs inside the prison as they were in abundant. He had confiscated thousands of kilos of drugs from the inmates, but it didn’t go down well with the drug cartel. The head of the cartel was in the same prison where the official worked, and he issued a hit on Robert Johnson. Within a week he suffered major injuries after being shot at and spent days recovering. After retiring from his work, he wanted to do something useful with his life. He wanted to show people how contraband cell phones in prison are a serious threat and should not be taken lightly.
Robert Johnson is a special consultant with Securus Technologies and is helping the company in improving their system and designing the implementation plans for prisons across the US and Canada.
