Securus Technologies Investing Millions to Develop Futuristic and Progressive Correctional Technology

The correctional industry is saturated with many new companies surfacing now and then. It is because the penitentiary sector has been growing massively in the last few years, especially with the need for the penitentiary technology increasing in recent years. One of the companies that have been making immense progress in the correctional industry is Securus Technologies.


The company was established in 1986 and since then has been making rapid progress in the field of corrections, and is known for developing high-end correctional technology, investigative technologies, parolee tracking system, and more. The company has won many awards over the years for developing innovative technologies and its attentive and responsive customer service, including three Gold Stevie Awards in 2018.


Securus Technologies recently introduced the futuristic wireless containment system in the correctional sphere, which is a technology that the sector needed for a long time. It is a technology that would not let the contraband phones to be used inside the prison. Securus Technologies has partnered with other network carriers to make wireless containment solutions a success.


As per the reports, more and more contraband phones are getting into the circulation in the correctional sphere, and it is something that needed immediate attention of the law enforcement agencies. If the illegal communication using the contraband phones from inside the prison is not stopped, the lives of many inmates, the families of inmates, and even the police officers are not safe. Many of the crimes are controlled from inside the prisons using the contraband phones, but with the help of wireless containment system, it would be stopped altogether.


Securus Technologies recently also introduced the drone detection technology to the correctional arena, which would not allow drones to enter the correctional institutions’ premise. The correctional facilities are highly guarded locations, but if any packages are dropped from the sky into the compound, it is difficult to stop. It is what drones are used to do. The drones carry contraband supplies that it drops into the compound from the sky, and the inmates use the contraband phones to manage the timings of the drop.


It has been found in many of the contraband supplies sent through drones that drones are being used to carry weapons, drugs, and contraband phones inside the prison. If the supplies using the drone are not stopped, it will create enormous problems for the law enforcement agencies in the future. However, with the use of drone detection technology, one can be sure that the drones won’t be allowed anywhere near the correctional facilities. Any drones flying near the correctional facilities would be immediately notified to the correctional officers so that the necessary actions can be taken to neutralize the threat and confiscate any contraband package it might be carrying.
