Why Use Securus’ Products?
The detainees have, for a long time, been involved in illegal activities including drug trafficking, handling of contraband items, and escape plans. The detainees achieve this through cellular communication with individuals outside the detainee’s location. This has posed an enormous challenge to the facility’s security.
Securus Technology developed an excellent product that has significantly resolved the problem. LBS identifies any call made by the detainees within a specific area of interest. It records the conversation and indicates the exact location of the receiving party. This has enabled the Sheriff Department to recover illegal assets, drugs, and cash money.
Additionally, the products ensure that there is no interference with the evidence in a given case through the issuance of threats. The threats or instructions regarding the evidence are intercepted and used against the detainee in the court of law.
Securus Technologies is committed to revolutionizing the communication and security matters in all the correctional facilities. Its products change as the need develops to ensure that there are no loopholes in the security of the correctional centers.
