For decades now, inmates have sought unique and challenging ways to bring contraband items into the prison for their use. Securus Technologies has made a fortune discovering ways to make it more difficult for inmates to do this. Beginning in the state of Texas, Securus Technologies has spread throughout the United States of America to the point its offices now range from coast-to-coast. They have been employed by over 1000 prisons in the United States of America alone and routinely protect 1.2 million prisoners daily. The products have been purchased by federal and state officials to be used by law enforcement and private investigators.
Securus Technologies has made its fortune by thwarting any security breach that inmates could throw at them. About six years ago a new security breach was thrown at Securus Technologies and they seek to solve that problem. This security breach occurs through the use of hobby drones. Civilians who are friends of inmates will bring a hobby drones to the prison and fly it over the walls when people are not looking in order to deliver goods that the inmates need. These goods pose a serious risk to the well-being of not only residents in the area but mainly to the prisons inside the system and the correctional officers who have dedicated their lives to protecting them.
The main items requested to be delivered by drones are drugs, weapons, and cell phones. Drugs are used by inmates to gain favor with other inmates, often using this as a transaction for a revenge incident. Weapons, of course are used for an inmate to protect themselves or to do serious damage to another inmate. Lastly, cell phones are used by inmates to contact people on the outside where they continue to run their criminal activities.
Securus Technologies understands it is crucial for them to stop this security breach as soon as possible. They believe they have what it takes to end the threat drones pose to prison security.
Securus Technologies already has a system that functions around the prisons known as the Wireless Containment Solutions. While this product normally is used to listen in on cell phone calls taking place and dropping those calls if necessary, they believe they can use the Wireless Containment Solutions to send a signal scramble at the drone and cause it to fly off course and crash into trees or the ground.
Securus Technologies is acknowledged around the world as the leading provider of safety technology. Due to the excellent work in customer service, they have received various Stevie Awards over the years. In 2017, they were awarded the gold and the silver and the bronze medals all for their customer service team.
