Modern prisons are supposed to be safe, but it isn’t like that for most of the prisons and correctional facilities out there. There is always some way in which the criminals can smuggle cell phones, drugs and other illegal materials inside the prisons and then use them to their advantage. There is some serious hi-tech security in place, but still, there are many loopholes in it that the criminals can find. Sometimes it becomes difficult for the prison officials to guard the entire prison and it leads to many accidents that also become life-threatening sometimes. In the past, inmates have been using the cell phones inside the prison to carry on their illegal activities without any problem. Many few companies have been trying to help the prison industries from becoming safe, and one of the top ones is Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies has developed a unique system that has allowed them to contain and restrict the use of cell phones inside the prison. The company has spent millions on developing the system and has finally come up with a Wireless Containment System that has been successful in blocking calls that are being made to and from the prison. But, it doesn’t mean that they restrict all calls that are made as sometimes it is necessary for the prison officials to make calls during riots or any accidents. Wireless Containment System is an advanced system that does not block all the calls, but only the ones that are not authorized by the system beforehand. Each call that has to go through the network has to be approved by the prison officials, and only then the calls can pass through. The system has already been tested and is providing excellent results. Securus Technologies is aiming to bring most of its clients under the purview of this system so that the prisons can become much safer.
The Wireless Containment System has been named as one of the most innovative and significant products made exclusively for the prison industry. Robert Johnson, who is no stranger to the problems that the contraband cell phones can pose to the human life, has been one of the people behind its development. He was the victim of the inmate brutality and was attacked at home by multiple men. Even though he was shot numerous times, he survived but after spending months in the hospital. He took a break from work and started to collaborate with Securus Technologies to develop a system that would prevent prison officials like him from becoming victims of the inmates’ anger. The company has already begun installing the system in prisons across the country and hope that it would cover all prisons in the coming months.
