Prison is not the first place that a lot of us think of as somewhere they needs a lot of technology. We have this outdated mindset of thinking of the place as a simple building with some cells and a lot of people we don’t want to be near. The modern prison is actually more complex than this though, and it requires a fair bit of technology to keep it running smoothly and safely.
Securus Technologies is a company that develops a lot of the technology that is used in prisons to keep everyone safe. They are primarily known for their call monitoring technology which enables prison officials to monitor all calls made within prison walls.
The company recently wanted to know how they were doing and how their products were impacting the day to day lives of law enforcement officials who work in the prisons. They were pleased with the thousands of responses that they received and the uplifting comments that they heard.
Some officials said that the call monitoring made it possible to track down people who were going to commit crimes in the future, or perhaps those who had already done something bad and were talking about it with someone from the outside.
One response received by Securus talked about how officials were able to find a corrupt member among their ranks and weed this person out. The last thing you want in a prison is someone that you cannot trust in law enforcement. That could make a bad situation a whole lot worse when it all comes down to it. Instead, they were able to find out about this person and take the proper steps to get them away from important roles in the organization.
Although we do not think about them everyday, Securus is doing their best to ensure that we don’t have to but that we remain safe anyway.
