With new technology makings its way to the common people and becoming more accessible, security measures to prevent misuse have to also move along with the times. This especially holds true for the judicial system, and prisons all over America. With new technology easily available to the common people, the security measures that are adopted need to be improved.
Drones are one kind of technology that has been becoming increasingly popular during the past year. With how easy it is to get a high tech drone, the abuse potential is also immense. There have been reports emerging of contrabands being smuggled into prisons using drones and other kinds of similar devices. This poses an additional threat, not only to people within the prisons but also for the general populous.
Securus Technologies, a company leading in prison communications technology decided to start the development of a program that would help reduce the risk of these incidents and to prevent goods from being smuggled into prisons. The technology was recently implemented in a few prisons that the company was operational in, and saw incredible results in terms of its efficiency and applicability. The program was successful in abrupting drones from entering the premises and takes control of them so that they can then be seized and used as evidence. Through this, Securus Technologies has done an incredible amount to tackle one more threat that people in society are prone to face.
Securus Technologies has always worked to improve the services that they provide for public safekeeping. The company has implemented several other programs and measures to reduce the threats that prisons face and to keep the illegal activities taking place there to a bare minimum. Prior to implementing this system, the company had implemented a wireless containment program that worked to reduce the number of unauthorized cell phones in prisons. The systems blocked any incoming network inside the prisons, thereby preventing the usability of cell phones inside prisons. This was done so that the only means of communication that the only lines that inmates could use were the ones that were being provided to them by Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies was also one of the first companies to implement phone monitoring systems to make sure that inmates were not using the phone lines for any kind of illegal activities. The company tracked each and every one of the calls and nabbed any inmates who were using them for potentially harmful or illegal activities that they were planning on carrying out. Through this, the company managed to catch many criminals before the deed was carried out, thereby preventing criminal activities and preventing anyone from getting hurt. They have also submitted these records as evidence in court proceedings, thereby helping serve due to justice.
