In the United States, few places are more dangerous than the nation’s many prisons. Although the United States has just 5 percent of the world’s population, it holds over 25 percent of the world’s prison population. This is largely a reflection of a violent society that has created a culture where criminal behavior, violence and general antisocial tendencies are viewed as traits to be modeled after.
This uniquely violent character of the American citizenry is reflected in the dangerous environment seen throughout the nation’s prisons. Many prisoners view joining one of the many organized criminal gangs that run rampant throughout the nation’s prisons as being the highest calling to which one could aspire in life. This creates criminal organizations, operating within the nation’s prison, that are highly organized, efficient and extremely dangerous. With dedicated members, who often times aspire to be nothing more in life than criminal gangsters from their earliest years, the gangs that populate America’s prisons pose the single greatest security threats to all of America’s carceral institutions.
However, companies like Securus Technologies are developing serious tools and applying them to this fight against the scourge presented by criminal gangs in the nation’s prisons. One of these systems is JLG Investigator Pro. JLG Investigator Pro consists of a suite of highly sophisticated, powerful technologies that allow for automated monitoring of all communications taking place on devices within the prison. The system is capable of monitoring all communications taking place at any given time. It uses advanced transcription technologies and artificial intelligence to monitor all conversations, alerting officers to anything that may be suspicious.
But perhaps the most impressive feature of JLG Investigator Pro is its ability to automatically prioritize threats, only bringing to the attention of officers those which pose the most immediate risk of serious harm to the institution. In this way, Securus is deploying technology that allows corrections officers to maximize their human capital, concentrating their best efforts on the most serious problems.
GTL and Securus are technology providers for the correctional facilities. There seems to be a sworn business enmity between these two companies, especially because GTL will not spreading lies about Securus. After years of trying to put off Securus proverbial light and not even convincing anyone, GTL decided that they would now place themselves on the same level as GTL. Recently, they have been spreading word that they are comparable with Securus and say that they are even better. So, in a recent press release on PR Newswire, Rick. A. Smith, Securus boss challenged GTL into a bake off. I am so sure that GTL wouldn’t dare honor this. Here are some reasons why.
A company is only as good as its customer service. When it comes to customer service excellence, it goes without saying that Securus wins. In the past four years, they have invested more than $700 million to go into building the-art-state call centers and getting more customer service agents. All these while, GTL has done literally nothing to improve their shoddy customer service.
Securus has a wider portfolio of services. They are continuously looking for ways to improve their services and add innovative technologies to help in the deterrence and contribute to solving crimes. Some of their outstanding products include voice biometrics, video visitations, data analytics, jail management systems, inmate Telemedicine, and securing inmate jobs.
Securus is without a shadow of doubt, the leading technology provider in facilities dealing with correctional issues. This provider is headquartered in Dallas Texas and has been in the industry long enough to be its leader. The company currently serves over 1.2 million inmates and their products and services are used by more than 3,450 security and correctional facilities.
There is nothing like watching a child express happiness on Christmas morning. This happiness comes from seeing a parent, who is incarcerated, face to face. Securus Technologies has made it possible for this young boy to speak to his father on Christmas morning. Despite the young boy opening up several different presents that morning, it is evident that having a face to face conversation with his incarcerated father is the best present of all.
The father is able to watch his son open his gifts and assemble them without being rushed off the phone or asked to add more money into a machine. The father is also able to talk to his son about how it was when he was a child on Christmas morning. Sadly, the father told his son to be good so that he doesn’t have to be in this same situation when he gets older.
Securus Technologies is gearing up for an unforgettable Christmas this year. Actually, there is gear resides in prisons throughout the United States and other parts of the world.
Securus Technologies is a great company because they have products and services for both inmates and prison staff. Evidently, the face to face video conversation program is the best benefit offered to inmates from Securus Technologies. Not only is this a benefit to inmates, but it’s a benefit to family members and friends of inmates, too. Family members and friends can sign up for a free account with Securus Technologies. They can then speak to their family members and friends from the comfort of their own home. The best thing about this program is that it’s free. It does not even cost the jail money.
When it comes to the prison staff, there are several different programs offered by Securus Technologies. One of the most popular programs would be the investigation solution system. This is a system that tracks criminals who routinely visit inmates, especially more than one inmate. The system does everything. All detectives and prison employees have to do is study the data, which is depicted in the simplest way using the best digital products.
This year alone, the investigation solution system has solved thousands and thousands of crimes.
One of the most important parts of daily life for anyone that lives in a prison, juvenile detention facility, or immigration holding center is the ability to communicate with their lawyers, their friends, and their loved ones or family members. It is the only real connection that those people ever get to the outside, aside from going to court, which is arguably in invalid or true connection to the outside world. These communications and phone calls between the prisoners and their lawyers and loved ones are of the utmost importance to the overall success of the prison culture and success.
It is clear by a recent announcement by Securus Technologies, and PRN Newswire, that Securus understands this concept perhaps better than any other provider of prison supplies and communications services. The company, which is headquartered in Dallas Texas, currently provides phone and communications services to more than 3,000 different facilities across the United States as a third party contractor. The phone call services that they provide normally come at a cost per minute with additional fees. However, the company announced in a recent press release to PRN Newswire that they will be providing their valued phone communications services to their prisons in the south free of charge for a limited time. The statement that was issued by their respected CEO, Rick Smith, claimed that the free phone calls at a rate of one per day, will be allowed for all of the prisoners with phone privileges for free until September 7th in Louisiana. This announcement comes in the wake of recent storms which have left the south with a lot of flooding and damage.
