Communication is something we rely heavily on each day. It is the thread that weaves the world together and the platform that encourages relationships with others. For most of us, communicating with loved ones or friends is as simple as can be. For thousands of inmates across America, communication has become a luxury to cherish.
Due to the sensitivity and security of correctional institutions and facilities, traditional communication is not an option for inmates. In an effort to present inmate on inmate crime and assist in solving criminal cases, all inmate communication must be monitored and recorded. Securus Technologies, a Dallas based prison technology company specializes in providing high-quality communication and technology solutions that meet prison security standards and keep families connected. Aside from offering traditional phone service, Securus Technologies also provides video chat and inmate email and voicemail platforms.
Incarceration should be about rehabilitation. Research shows that family plays a vital role in the success of an inmate upon their release, and during their incarceration. Inmates rely heavily on the support and encouragement of loved ones to help ease the stress that comes with being incarcerated. Securus Technologies understands the importance of maintaining relationships during incarceration and is dedicated to keeping families together, one call at a time.
Technology changes life. It makes it better, easier and safer. While most of the developers and companies focus on the first two, Securus Technologies spends time pouring over data and ideas aimed at making correctional facilities safer.
Developing systems for correctional facilities is just a tip of the iceberg. Securus also creates technological innovations aimed at making the investigation, profiling and prosecution of offenders faster and more efficient.
In a recent effort to streamline operations and make all its technological solutions more appropriate, Securus send out a request for comments and suggestions from customers across the niche. The idea was to come up with information that shows what existing systems might be missing out on hence giving developers and innovators a chance to plug the gaps.
When it comes to jail security, Securus’ assessment software gives an innovative way to identifying emerging problems and handle them in advance hence improving jail security. Combining an intelligent monitoring system with the natural warden aggressive investigation not only gives the prison management an upper hand but also keeps prisoners safer by defusing potentially explosive situations before it is too late.
Another important feature that caught my attention is the comprehensive LBS software that has allowed law enforcers to capture illegal assets, laundered money and drugs faster by handling the logical analysis that would have otherwise been left to the cop.
As a developer, Securus has done a great job at using a practical approach to identify what the market needs. The released comments and responses to the reach out, though anonymous, are a great testimony to what technology can make our correctional facilities safer while helping officers lock up the criminals faster. It is a great way to draw attention to the otherwise ignored niche, a niche we all take for granted and don’t care how it works.
