If you wanted to know what the most dangerous job was in the country, try being a corrections officer in a very crowded prison. Not only do I have to come face-to-face with the most dangerous people in the world who want to hurt me any chance they can, add into the mix they get more violent when they are on drugs. Any time an inmate is able to access drugs in the jail, things quickly escalate from dangerous to deadly.
To try and maintain some degree of order inside the jail, me and my fellow officers are always working hard to keep all drugs out of the jail. To the surprise of many, these inmates say that they can score drugs of all sorts more easily from inside the jail than when they were on the street. That reflects poorly on me and my fellow officers, and we will make use of any resource available to us to keep the drugs on the outside.
Securus Technologies has their inmate telephone monitoring system inside our prison, and it is one of the keys to making our facility safe. The company is headed by their CEO, Richard Smith, and he says that all of his employees are dedicated to making the world a little safer. We have seen incredible results since making use of the LBS software, and our jail is safer as a result.
If an inmate is on the phone trying to convince someone to sneak drugs to the guest center, we act. If inmates are sharing experiences of drug use with other inmates, we act. If inmates slip and talk about where they hide drugs in the jail or in their cells, we act. Our entire prison population is that much safer each time we eliminate a threat of drug use.
Securus Technologies is a company that is wholly dedicated to the prison population in the United States of America. Securus was founded in 1986 and is based in Dallas, Texas. It is a large for-profit company that employs more than 1,000 people and has contracts with 2,600 correctional facilities across the United States and Canada. In a July 2016 reporting, the company announced that it had invested more than $600 million in product and application patents, communication technologies, and acquisitions in the past three years.
Although the American prison population is enormous, Securus has excelled in communication services. The antiquated and costly previous system that put the expense and burden on family members and friends of those convicted has been replaced by a special telephone system for inmates to communicate with family and loved ones.
This new communication system not only helps friends and family but gives the inmate more needed contact with attorneys and friends and family. Securus is doing its part in helping inmates rejoin the society they had transgressed against. The transformation of persons convicted of crimes, turning them into useful members of society is the true task of the American prison system. Securus is helping this transformation in no small part due to its innovative and inexpensive communication system.
Securus Technologies is bringing a whole new world of innovative technology to your very own home. Oftentimes, any of us find ourselves in unfortunate circumstances in which those who are close to us are faced with a difficult time in their lives in which they are placed in jail. If this happens to be your case, then it is possible that you’ve found yourself in a predicament in which you will need to visit the jail by setting up an appointment with one of the officials at the front desk. You may then come to realize that the jail facility is so busy that you are unable to set up an appointment at a time that you had wished to have had such a form of visitation conducted. This can be quite problematic as you had wanted to visit your friend, significant other, or relative while they’re enduring through a tough time in which they may begin to feel lonely while incarcerated, but you also were not able to cancel other important obligations that you may have had, such as school, business, or other types of responsibilities that required your attendance/attention. Securus Technologies understood that such dilemmas exist in people’s lives, and therefore, have created an opportunity for them in which they can now successfully communicate with the inmate that they’d wanted to visit through means of video chatting sessions from the comfort and privacy of their own homes,
Securus Technologies is not only providing everyday citizens with wonderful benefits, but it is also giving a great advantage to law enforcement agencies in solving crimes. It is a great tool that enables people to not only connect with one another, but also one which enables law enforcement agencies to utilize whatever has been said within the conversations of the video sessions as evidence to use for opening investigations if dangerous crimes, or any type of crime for that matter, is discussed within them.

The leading provider of inmate technology solutions, investigative authority and corrections monitoring company Securus Technologies just rolled out a new way to help facilities and customers save more time and money. The company will now include Inmate Forms and Grievance applications on ConnectUs, which in turn will cut down the amount of time needed to complete the paperwork by more than 50%.
The extreme amount of time required to complete such paperwork minimizes the amount of prison staff that are readily available to tend to inmates and with the cost of paper, and filling the empty seat of a guard working to process it has a direct effect on the facilities budget. Through ConnectUs, prison staff will be able to complete and revise paperwork in under half the time it takes to manually process it, and there is no printing involved. With the world moving heavily toward the use of technology for everything, having this option at their fingertips is an awesome addition to the list of helpful tools that Securus has introduced to the corrections industry.
Inmates will enjoy the benefits of the new tool as well. They will have the ability to log on and check the status of their forms, as well as take action on them by accepting or appealing them. The new innovative feature brings convenience and well needed twist on the way paperwork is done inside of prisons.
