Keeping Jail Employees Safer with Securus Technologies

I work in a prison that is overpopulated and dangerous, and currently the inmates outnumber us corrections officers by 5:1 any time of the day. To try and make sure we all work in a safe environment, we have to work hard to keep all sorts of contraband out of he jail. The only way the issue gets worse is when visitors smuggle in all sorts of contraband to help inmates.


Our team stands guard at the visitor center and we work very hard to check every person coming into our prison. Certain crafty inmates can make weapons out of everyday items like pens, toothbrushes, and even shoelaces. Nothing is allowed to be given to the inmates without permission, but these inmates have developed ingenious ways to get the things they desperately need.


When items do slip by the staff, then we have to work even harder at our surprise cell inspections. Even though the inmates are not sure exactly when we are coming, they do know it will be happening in their cells soon. They go to great lengths to conceal those items either right there in the cells or somewhere in the jail where they can get them quickly. Even with the help of drug sniffing dogs, we don’t find everything. These inmates have developed systems for warning each other and staying minutes ahead of our searches.


To help in our efforts to control the flow of contraband in jail, we have recently turned to Securus Technologies for help. This company installs inmate communication monitoring systems that allow us a new way to listen in on calls the inmates make. Unlike the old dated system, the new system uses software to do the work of a dozen officers. We decided we were going to fight the problem with contraband this way to tighten down on the trouble.


Securus Technologies is headed by CEO Richard Smith, and he tells us that his 1,000 employees are committed to one objective, making sure that the world is a safer place as a result of their efforts. Having systems installed in over 2,600 jails only instills confidence in my team that we have partnered with a company who is as dedicated as we are to jail safety.


It did not take long before an alert was reported concerning inmates talking about how they hide contraband out in the yard to use if the order comes in to take down another inmate. We discovered where the inmates were hiding drugs in the cells and which inmates were actually doing drugs at night. Our team was even able to recover a number of illegal cellphones the inmates had smuggled into the jail they have been using to make calls without fear of us officers listening in.
