Securus Technology Has Frequently Prevented Many Large-Scale Prison Security Events
In a few cases, Securus Technology has helped to identify a corrupt prison staff member who was then removed from their post. Call monitoring has also resulted in the apprehension of individuals involved in the sale and distribution of drugs, alcohol, and weapons within the facility. The reach of the technology extends beyond the prison, to the outside community as the technology is used to ensure that all activities remain contained within the walls of the prison – thereby preventing any additional criminal activity that would spill over to the community. Even parolees are able to feel safer knowing that potential criminal activity which could harm them is monitored.
Securus Extends Investigative Abilities of Prison Staff Members
This monitoring technology has further extended the investigative capability of the prison. Prison staff are able to quickly conduct investigations into matters such as contraband and other violations. In cases where there might be harassment involved, the call monitoring technology is able to ensure that these matters are promptly investigated. Securus further deters the introduction of contraband within prison facilities.
