Video Visitation App

Each day that I show up for my job as a corrections officer at the local prison, I know that I am literally taking my lie in my hands because certain inmates have such a hatred for authority. Since you already have many of those inmates serving a life sentence, another life sentence for hurting an officer means nothing to them. For that reason and more, me and my fellow officers have to be walking around focused or things can escalate quickly.

 

One reason for the violence in the prison has to do with the rampant drug usage with inmates. These inmates will tell you they can score any type of drugs in the jail easier than they could while on the streets. To try an combat the problem, we have to take several proactive measures each day in addition to all our other prison duties. The most important is getting a team to the visitor center and make sure no one is coming in with drugs, handing drugs to the inmates, or that the inmates are getting to their cells with drugs.

 

We’ve been lucky to have Securus Technologies install their call monitoring system in our prison, it helps us to listen to inmates on the phone and helps us slow down drug trafficking too. The company is based out of Dallas Texas, and the one thousand employees of Securus Technologies have a single objective they work towards each day, making our world safer.

 

The LBS software can alert my team to when inmates are talking about things like drugs. Soon as we hear an inmate giving a family member instructions on how to get drugs into the visitor center and pass it to them, we take action, This resource has helped us to make the jail that much safer.
