Securus Technologies is an organization that began to assist inmates with receiving and utilizing modern technology, which included better phone service, video chatting, and allowing people to add money to a commissary account from the comfort of their own home. In all of this, Securus Technologies always made it known that they care about the safety of the public. In fact, every piece of technology developed by Securus Technologies was developed with the public in mind.
The newest technology produced by Securus was created specifically for the public, and it’s called Securus Technologies Wireless Containment Systems. This new system stops inmates from making calls with a cell phone. It is estimated that more than half of all inmates illegally have a cell phone in their cell, so Securus believes creating this technology was vital to the community. When an inmate makes a phone call, the cell phone registers to Securus’ headquarters, and Securus is able to disconnect the call at once.
Securus Technologies is receiving help from Robert Johnson. Robert Johnson was once a prison guard. His career took a tragic turn when an inmate used a cell phone to organize his murder. Luckily, Johnson survived the tragedy, but unluckily he was shot almost 10 times, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. Robert Johnson is helping Securus Technologies get this new technology in every prison in America.
So far, Securus Technologies has stopped hundreds of thousands of calls from inmates using cell phones. Recently, an inmate was able to get through to Facebook through his cell phone, and he posted a video on Facebook live. Securus Technologies is now working with managers of all social media websites to stop this illegal activity. Securus Technologies hopes this entire program will be fully operating within the next four months. Robert Johnson believes this new technology is going to not only stop inmates from making illegal calls, but he also believes it will save the lives of prison guards, too.
