Securus Technologies is known as one of the leading inmate phone services providers in the country. The company was the first among the phone service companies to have a transparent system of payment for the inmates and their family members. But, in the past years, the company has been developing security systems that are designed primarily for the prisons and the correctional agencies in the country. The company realized that since they were working closely with the prison officials and guards, it was essential that they develop security systems that would make the prisons more prepared for the tricks that the inmates often use to get their hands on illegal goods like drugs and contraband phones.
One of the latest threats to join the list of things that the prison industries have to deal with is the drone technology. While the new technology has many great uses, they have found their way into the hands of the criminals who are using it to their advantage. Criminals are using the drones to transfer illegal goods inside the prison to their associates so that they can have full power and control inside the prison. These drones can carry anywhere around 20 pounds of weight meaning that multiple drones can be used to provide the inmates with everything they need without being detected or paying something on the inside to have them smuggled in.
The contraband supply has been increasing in the past few years, and drones have played a vital role in making it happen. With more and more drones being captured by the law enforcement agencies that are trying to supply contraband items inside the prison, it suggests that it is becoming a problem that needs to be taken seriously. The drone detection technology is something that the corrections space need for some time. The testing of the drone detection has already begun, and it has proved to be highly useful and productive. The cases of drones entering the prison’s premise have entirely stopped in the prisons where it was installed. The FCC has said that more and more correctional facilities should start using the services of Securus Technologies like wireless containment system and drone detection technology. It would help in keeping the criminals away and crime rate low.
The drone detection technology can also help in recognizing what the drones are carrying and taking images and videos. In some of the cases, it can also detect from where the drones are being controlled, which can expose the location of the controller. It would help in catching the criminals from their base. Securus Technologies is committed to the correctional sector, and the fact that it won three Gold Stevie Award in 2018 signifies it.
