Keeping Our Jail Free of Drugs with Securus Technologies

Posted by Avery05 on

I work in our local state jail, and each day I am putting my life on the line to try to keep the peace in jail. These same inmates that I am trying to keep from hurting each other, are the ones getting high and looking to hurt me and my team of corrections officers. To combat the problem, we have to work tirelessly each day to try to keep drugs out of the inmates hands.

 

An inmate who is high on drugs can be a bigger problem to handle and puts us all in severe danger. The ways that we try to combat the flow of drugs in the jail is by stopping each visitor and going through their belongings and scanning them trough a large x-ray machine. Gang members are not concerned about going to jail if caught smuggling drugs because they feel they will earn credit with the gang leader for taking the risk.

 

To fight the drug issues on another level, we do a surprise cell inspection all the time. These searches sometimes yield us the drugs we want, but the inmates tend to be one step ahead of us and keep the drugs from being discovered. One last resource that has become invaluable in our efforts to stop the flow of drugs in the jail in monitoring the inmate calls. The inmates know we are listening, so they try to code their messages so we can not make heads or tails of what they are saying.

 

When Securus Technologies installed the new system to monitor all inmate calls, we saw results immediately. The chatter was detected by the LBS software, and pointed us to inmates who were handing down orders, how the drugs got into the jail, and who was carrying out the orders. This phone system has been key in our efforts to make the jail safer.

Securus Keeps Everyone Safe With New Innovation

Posted by Avery05 on

Preventing crimes that take place in prisons is a difficult thing to do. First of all, prisoners are very unlikely to tip off law enforcement officers. They do so at risk for their own safety. Secondly, prison guards may be in on the crime taking place inside of a prison. This includes smuggling in contraband for the prisoners for profit. Many times, guards themselves are a part of a crime ring inside of a prison.

 

So how do you get information about the criminal happenings inside of prison? You may have come up with the idea to listen in on prison phone calls. You’d be right. Many times, criminals give away their plans during their phone calls out of a prison. If you need contraband smuggled into the prison, for instance, you need to communicate your order to somebody.

 

This is where it gets tricky. While listening to prisoner phone calls is a good way to collect intelligence, how would you go about doing it? You couldn’t have a panel of law enforcement officers constantly listening in on the phone calls. That would be way too much man power. The costs for that kind of surveillance would be sky high. Plus, you’d want your officers doing other things, such as enforcing the law.

 

That’s where a telecommunications company called Securus comes in. This company provides internet and phone call services to prisons. In an effort to help law enforcement prevent crime, they have developed proprietary software. Securus records all prison phone calls. The recorded digital information is then stored in a database.

 

The software is capable of searching the database for a single person’s voice. This allows law enforcement officers to follow up on leads, collect actionable intelligence and prevent crime taking place in the prison. It keeps everyone safe.
