How Did Securus Technologies Make a Jail Safer?

I have been working in the same country jail for twenty-six years, and in that time the most important part of my job is making the facility safe for me, my fellow officers, prison staff, visitors, and the inmates. Some inmates have nothing but time on their hands, and they look for any opportunity to lash out at other inmates or authority figures to make a statement. I will not allow these inmates to put me in a position where I can not come hoe to my family, so each day I take certain precautions.

 

When it is visitors day, we not only search each guest, we watch the interaction with the inmates and then check the inmates before allowing them to return to their cells. It only takes a small piece of contraband to be used as a weapon or drugs to cause the inmates to lose control and hurt another person in this jail. My team will do various cell inspections with drug-sniffing dogs too, all in an attempt to clean up the jail and make it harder for inmates to get an edge.

 

No longer do we have to listen in to the inmates on the prison phone system, Securus Technologies installed a modernized call monitoring system that will do the work of my whole team autocratically. The LBS software can scan every second of every call those inmates are making, and alert my team if something of concern is said. Securus Technologies has a thousand employees, and thousands of systems installed in jails all over, and they all work together to make the world a little safer.

 

The LBS software can alert my team if inmates are talking about drugs, making or hiding weapons, or if a hit is planned on another inmate or one of my guards, allowing my team to take preventative action.
