Ways that Securus Technologies Helps Eliminate Contraband from Our Prison

When me and my fellow corrections officers are offered another resource in our wage against drugs in the prison, we jump at the opportunity. This month we were told that Securus Technologies was going to be installing their inmate call monitor system, and we couldn’t wait to see what this newly upgraded system would allow us to do. We know how dangerous our jail can be if we allow the inmates to use drugs, so anything that will help us to clean up the location is welcomed.

 

We have been seeing instances in our facility where an inmate will take heroin or crack, then become so violent that we need a dozen officers to get control of the situation. If we had several inmates in that condition, there is no telling how violent things could become. We trust that Securus Technologies will be able to help, they are already using this exact call monitoring system in over two thousand jails around the country. The CEO of the company says his one thousand employees are dedicating themselves to making our world that much safer.

 

The day that me and my fellow corrections officers were trained to use the LBS software, we could not wait to see how effective the new monitoring system would be. It didn’t take but a few minutes for the system to alert my team that there was chatter inside the jail concern different types of drugs. One call was about an inmate who was asking family to bring him some prescription drugs that he could use in his cell. One inmate was talking about where he had hidden drugs in his cell and how his mom could send small amounts in letters. We take each alert serious and take action the minute we can so drug use is better controlled.
