It has been news all over recently that the menace of contraband phones usage is getting out control in recent times. More and more inmates are being caught with the contraband phones, and it remains a dirty dark secret as to where they are managing to get their hands on contraband items with such ease.
The law enforcement agencies are doing their best to put to use some of the most developed security technologies to ensure that the contraband packages do not get through and that the correctional facilities remain safe and secure for inmates and officers, but it has not been able to gain much success in controlling the illegal communications. Securus Technologies, a criminal justice technology firm recently came out with the only tried, tested, and approved contraband interdiction technology there is in the market.
Securus Technologies call it as the wireless containment solutions, which would help in ensuring that no contraband phone can make calls from inside the prison. The wireless containment solutions work with other network carriers to ensure that no unauthorized communication passes through its network from inside the prison premise.
It has proved to be highly successful, and no other such technology is there in the market today, which makes it even more valuable to the corrections space. The FCC has also showcased positivity around the wireless containment solutions by promising to reduce the amount of paperwork and other formalities needed for the installation of WCS in the prison facilities. It would help the correctional facilities to get their hand on this system and ensure that no contraband phones are used inside the corrections space. If the prisoners are allowed to freely chat with the outside world and control other illegal activities from inside the prison, what good is incarceration?
Securus Technologies believe that the wireless containment solutions have the capabilities to upgrade further and become more secure than it is already. It would put a complete end to the menace created by the use of contraband phones. Robert Johnson, a former corrections officer for 15 years, was shot six times in his stomach and chest, which changed his life forever. He was responsible for confiscating the contraband packages, which is what led the inmates to order a hit on him. Robert Johnson currently serves Securus Technologies as a consultant, and he has helped in the development of the wireless containment solutions.
Securus Technologies is known as the innovator in the correctional sphere, and with the rollout of wireless containment solution, it has been able to consolidate its position in the industry. Securus Technologies believe that the use of WCS technology would help in saving lives of inmates as well as officers, and also help the corrections ecosystem to become more secure than it is now.
