The Securus Technologies has been one of the leaders in the business of tech solutions for inmate communications and civil and criminal justice. Based in Dallas, Texas, the company recently announced a program for preventing drone piloting in order to secure correctional facilities. Drones have been found to carry contraband to prisoners such as cell phones, drugs, weapons, and so on.
The company of Securus Technologies became aware of the issue and immediately set to work on a detection technology to combat this threat. It has taken the corporation 18 months of research, evaluation, and working with partners to develop a powerful system that will detect and neutralize drones. A spokesman of the corporation said that this technology was challenging as it is created based on an emerging new concept which the Securus Technologies has had to develop further. Additionally, the company has had to work with many techs and engineering partners to meet the requirements for engineering, installing, and implementing the drone detection plot program and prepare it for use by correctional facilities.
The drone detection technology makes use of a digital antennae structurer or DAS. That infrastructure is similar to the Wireless Containment System that Securus technologies came out with last year to prevent prisoners from using internet on contraband cell phones and going on social media networks. Securus Technologies has to be alert to any new issues in the security of the correctional sector as those who aim to circumvent the law become more resourceful and find new ways bypass guards, already established security measures, and regulations. The latest issue with drones and contraband delivery is the most recent example of that.
The company of Securus Technologies Inc. has been able to create products and services to combat a number of past issues. The Wireless Containment System of the company was the solution to prisoners streaming on social meaning platforms from last year. The corporation has also been working on preventing inmates from making calls on the contraband cell phones. The Securus technologies has blocked millions such calls, and the system for that is running at all times.
Securus Technologies is currently working with more than 3 500 institutions in the corrections industry. That includes law enforcement, public safety, correctional facilities, and agencies. That makes 1 200 000 inmates in total that Securus Technologies Inc. is helping to contain and serve.
The company is firmly committed to its goal to serve and protect society. The corporation offers a wide variety of services such as communication, incident management, emergency response, public information, biometric analysis, investigation, inmate self-service, government payment services, monitoring products and services, a variety of software and tech solutions, among many others.
