The need for correctional firms that provide breakthrough technologies has increased in the last several years, especially with the criminals going high-tech as well and using new and modern ways to carry out their criminal activities. One correctional firm that has made rapid advances in this context is Securus Technologies, which recently announced the launch of two new breakthrough technologies, wireless containment system, and drone detection technology. The company is also known to provide one of the most attentive and responsive customer care services and has also won three Gold Stevie Awards in 2018 for it.
Winning such prestigious award goes on to show the dedication of the company towards its customers. Rick Smith, CEO of Securus Technologies, believe that constant innovation is what would help the correctional sector become much safer than what it is today. The company has transformed the inmate communication services for the benefits of the inmates, who are now able to talk to their friends and families more frequently while having to pay lesser than before. Securus Technologies is confident that developing new technologies would help in solving the problems that the corrections space is facing currently.
The problem with the correctional facilities these days is that no matter how tough the security measures are implemented, the inmates and the criminals find their way around it. There are many security measures implemented to ensure that the contraband supplies do not find its way inside the prison, but it always ends up inside. In fact, the cases of contraband supplies found inside the prison have increased in the past few years, especially after the introduction of the drone technology.
The drones are unmanned flying objects that are used for recreational as well as for security, surveillance, filming, and other purposes. However, the criminals have found the use of drones in supplying contraband inside the prison. As it is unmanned, chances of corrections officers catching anybody red-handed are next to none. It is a safe way of transporting the contraband items inside the prison.
However, Securus Technologies recently launched the highly awaited drone detection technology. It is a technology that would help the correctional agencies to detect any oncoming drones, even if it is at a distance. The alarm would ring as soon as the drone is detected in or around the prison, and it would help the correctional officers to take the drone out and seize all the contraband materials it would be carrying. Stopping this supply route is essential as it would lead to safety issues for the prison facilities and the inmates.
The inmates depend on the safety provided by the corrections officers, but if some of the inmates can get their hands on weapons through the contraband supplied by drones, it would put lives of many inmates and even officers at stake. Securus Technologies said that also though drone detection technology is currently in the infant stage, the company would leave no stone unturned in continually developing it further. It is what would help in eliminating the use of drones to supply contraband in prison.
