I have been working on the fugitive task force for two decades, and this particular case was the most challenging we have ever encountered. We knew the suspect, we knew his family, and we still could not bring him in to custody. Every time we closed the gap, he would simply outrun or outsmart us. The problem we had was while he was making his escapes, he was also committing crimes throughout the city.
Our suspect would leave his calling card and actually thought he was playing a game at one point. Even when we were able to catch him, he would slip out of the jail, the police car, or the holding station he was in. This suspect was making a complete mockery of my team, and we were getting pressure that he needed to be put away immediately. The suspect even went as far as sending my office a tape of him threatening to meet me one on one and settling this like men. He named a place and sad to bring weapons, but I was not going to allow this suspect to be in any position to be able to call the shots.
When Securus Technologies installed a call monitoring system in our prison, we didn’t think much about it helping our cause, until we got a call from an officer expressing how we needed to see it in action. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, says his systems and his 1,000 employees are all working to make the world safer, we needed to put those claims to the test.
Once I was shown how the LBS software works, I began to hear chatter about our suspect from inmates who were either related or knew him. One particular call talked about how hiding the fugitive was going to help the members of that family get cred from the local gang. We dispersed to that location that day, and within hours we had the suspect surrounded ad in custody. Today he is lock down 23 hours each day and should not be back on the streets for many years to come.
The inmates calling facilities being provided by Securus Technologies is revolutionizing the incarceration environment completely. In fact, the facilities are able to improve public safety this way.
I was informed by Securus Technologies about what their customers say about making use of technology to solve and even to prevent crimes from taking place. These refer to the inmate-on-inmate crimes also.
I went through the comments that pour in from formal letters along with emails to Securus Technologies. These are from jail, and prison officials and they come from all across the United States. The senders are those officials whose job is to prevent crimes in prisons as well as solving them. They have to make the incarceration environment better and much safer for all.
I read about how new products and services being developed by Securus Technologies is aiding law enforcement. These are helping the corrections officials to solve as well as prevent crimes from taking place.
Securus Technologies is always ready to inform and educate their clients about what they are doing or developing in order to keep the community, inmates, their families, as well as the parolees safe.
Building safety is the biggest priority for Securus Technologies. They focus on protecting and on serving their clients in innovative ways.
The customers of Securus Technologies appreciate the assistance which they get in criminal cases. They are using information which is collated from phone calls being made by inmates or to inmates. This has also helped in obtaining search warrants for cases of corruption on account of contraband and so on. Hence many cases have been solved this way.
The prison officials need to monitor calls. These may contain information pertaining to alcohol use, or selling of drugs and even drug use inside the facility. Other calls refer to access to a cellular device, or threats and such other suspicious conversation regarding money that is being transferred.
