Securus Technologies is undeniably a force to reckon with as far as providing inmate technological solutions for monitoring, communication, and investigation is concerned. Recently, the role played by the company’s technology in solving and preventing crimes in correctional facilities was unveiled by customer comments/feedback. The comments came from jail and prison officials around the United States in the form of email and letter communications.
In several comments, the LBS service from Securus received numerous praises. In fact, the use of the software alongside other law enforcement tools assisted one sheriff’s department to recover millions in terms of illegal money, assets, and drugs. Securus’ investigative tools also proved its usefulness in investigating potential threat cases or harassment complaints in correctional facilities. Additionally, the monitoring of calls unveiled information relating to drugs in the facility, alcohol use, suspicious conversation, threats and cellular device use.
