In this day and age, crime seems to have spiraled out of control. Even when criminals are apprehended, prosecuted, and imprisoned, some still have influence over happenings in the prison itself. Illegal substances still pass through security to the inmates due to an inmate having outside influence even from prison. What do we do when the crime does not stop at the prison walls? Securus Technologies has provided the answer to that question.
The answer is equipping the customer to solve and prevent crimes on their own. Allowing the facility to monitor activity within their own walls allows them to not only prevent crimes but solve them as well. With facility regulated education and communication, the ability of the inmate to connect with the wrong element is dramatically decreased, allowing rehabilitation to occur. This not only benefits the inmate but also their family and community.
The most recent move against crime has been Securus Technologies actually putting the power to solve, and even prevent crimes directly in their customer’s hands. This allows the facility to monitor not only inmate actions upon booking and housing but the guards that interact with them as well. Decreasing disgruntled guard assistance in the contraband influx, and acts of violence among inmates has been a real boon to security and law enforcement efforts. This not only helps the facility to provide a safer environment for the inmates and guards but reduces costs of involving an outside third party to step in and investigate in-house crimes. This is yet another bonus for the community in reduced taxes and housing fees.
Securus Technologies is continuing the long tradition of positive forward movement to improve conditions within the correctional facilities as well as within the family unit.
Securus Technologies is helping police officers keep track of gangs with a new software innovation. It should come as no surprise that gangs are often involved with law enforcement. As in organized crime syndicate, a street gang typically has a few members in prison at any given moment. Those gang members still communicate with the gang through telephone calls and personal visits.
Most organized crime groups understand that every single phone call made into and out of a jail is recorded by the telephone company that services the prison. This forces the gang to use coded language and slang words to work around the fact that they are being surveilled.
What a gang might not know is that a new innovation from Securus Technologies is helping law enforcement track the movement of their gang despite the use of coded language. This software program only requires a short recording of a particular person’s voice. The program deconstructs the voice, walks onto its unique signature and then searches through terabytes of information to pull up every single phone call where the voices found. This can help law enforcement officers track the movement of gangs outside of the prison.
If police officers get a recording of the leader of the gang, they can feed it into this software program and hear everything that person is said to his gang members inside of the prison. If they are capable of decoding the slang terms used by this particular person, they can forecast the movement of the gang and any crimes that they may commit in the future.
This is obviously a very powerful weapon in the fight against gang violence. Law enforcement can be ahead of the gang using this technological innovation and that can save lives. It’ll be interesting to see what Securus Technologies comes up with next.
Recently, Securus Technologies executive Danny De Hoyos traveled to Las Vegas to accept an award. The prestigious Stevie Business Awards are handed out yearly in various categories for those companies who display an uncommon level of excellence in their dealings with the public. This year, Securus has been bestowed with such an award for their stellar customer service and innovative line of products.
One of the factors that led to the nomination of this coveted award was Securus’ ongoing roll out of its widely hailed video visitation platform. This system has permanently disrupted the prison communications industry, turning the old, exorbitant system of outrageously expensive collect calling and kickback-driven price controls on its head.
A lot more than just Skype
Some of those who have seen Securus’ video visitation system have been impressed but have also noted that it seems like little more than a proprietary version of Skype. Such feelings could hardly be further from the truth. Run by a physical infrastructure rivaling that of the largest telecommunications providers, Securus video visitation is a 100% self-contained system which only interfaces with the world-wide-web at the last possible stage. This means that Securus retains 100% control over all communications which take place on its network.
This allows Securus to ban unauthorized parties who may pose a threat to institutional safety. It also allows for advanced investigatory tools to be deployed over all of its communications media. Such high levels of control prevent unauthorized or criminal communications and help keep jails and prisons safer than at any time before in U.S. history.
But this high-level control also allows Securus to reduce costs to levels that would not otherwise be feasible. Since Securus owns the physical infrastructure, right down to the data center, it enjoys phenomenal economies of scale. This means inmates may pay as little as $.05 per minute for a video visitation.
Leading telecommunications company Securus Technologies has recently issued a number of corrections to a press release by competitor GTL on June of 2016. According to sources, Global Tel Link had a press release that contained a number of statements that were found to be false and inaccurate. As a result, Securus Technologies has looked to correct the press release so that it reveals true and correct information. With this effort, Securus Technologies will be in position to help provide clarification and credibility among members in the telecommunications industry.
Over the most recent months, Securus Technologies has made a number of corrections that will help allow consumers to gain a more accurate perspective on recent trends in the telecommunications industry. The company has made a number of corrections to multiple statements made by Global Tel Link. With these corrections, the available information in press releases will now be providing the truth about recent facts about the telecommunications industry.
Securus Technologies has made corrections on a number of recent allegations by Global Tel Link. One of these was one in which GTL stated that a recent decision by the United States Patent Trial and Appeals Board allows GTL to move forward in seeking injunctions for damages by Securus. However, Securus Technologies countered by saying that GTL is now unable to seek any legal action which includes being unable to seek injunctions for damages.
Another allegation made by GTL was that all 55 claims of the 816 patent were preserved. This means that GTL has technology for video visitation monitoring in prisons. According to Securus Technologies, GTL is only asserting one individual claim,
In the third allegation, Global Tel Link said that they are pleased that the innovations they made are patentable. However, Securus made a correction which said that the PTAB did not determine that GTL has any innovations that can be patented.
