Believe it or not, crime is a big problem in our prisons. You would think that the prison guards have complete control over the entire environment, but you would be wrong. Prisoners find a way to commit crimes inside of prisons despite the most maximum of securities. One of the most prevalent crimes committed inside of a prison is the flow of contraband materials, including drugs, alcohol, cell phones, pornography and weapons.
One of the reasons that crime is prevalent inside of a prison is because many prison guards become corrupted themselves. Prison guards can sometimes be the source of contraband materials flowing into a prison. They obviously do this because they are profiting on some level. But the flow of contraband is a very big problem for a few reasons. Prison is supposed to be an uncomfortable place for prisoners so luxury and device items are prohibited. Contraband also includes weapons, and these weapons can be used to perpetrate violence inside of the prison. Contraband, in the end, is a safety issue.
The problem for law enforcement is that prisoners are very unlikely to tip off police officers on the source of contraband. That is why Securus Technologies has debuted its most recent innovation.
In order to get contraband flowing into a prison, prisoners must communicate to the outside world. The most prevalent avenue of communication is telephone calls. But each of these telephone calls is recorded by Securus Technologies and made available to police officers. Securus Technologies makes this database easily searchable for police officers with its latest software.
During the short time this software has been available, it has stopped the flow of contraband all over the country. It has also helped police officers catch corrupt prison guards. And all of this makes the people on the inside of prisons much safer
