Securus Technologies has been offering communication services to the various correctional facilities and prisons in the country. The company allows the inmates to speak to their loved one and remain in touch with them while they are completing their sentences. But, not all inmates are happy with just that. Many of the inmates are using illegal phones to speak to their partners and associates outside the prison. While it is not possible for them to use the phones provided by the prisons since they are bugged, they smuggle phones just like drugs inside the prison. Utilizing these contraband phones, they are able to call their associates when they like without being detected by the correctional officers.
The problem of illegal phones inside the prison is much more severe today than it was before. Many dangerous criminals are using the phones to order hit on people they have enmity with. It also includes prison officials including someone like Robert Johnson, but not everyone is as lucky as him. After he was seen confiscating massive amount of drugs from one of the gang members inside the prison, he quickly became their target. The inmates must have come in contact with their associates outside the prison and asked them to kill Robert Johnson. While he was shot many times by a gun, he survived the attacked but was left in the hospital for many months to recover fully. Once out of the hospital, he joined his duty at prison again and worked there till he retired a few years back. After his retirement, he was hired by Securus Technologies as one of the experts.
Securus Technologies has introduced their new technology for prisons called the Wireless Containment System. The system is fool-proof and allows the prisons to secure their facility by blocking all the calls made from illegal cell phones. The system works by creating a local network that is impossible to be hacked by a third party. All calls have to go through it to reach the commercial network, and the prison officials can easily track down all the calls that are being made through it. The best part is that they can track down the illegal calls that try to pass through their system allowing them to confiscate all the different phones that are smuggled inside the prison.
As a spokesperson for Securus Technologies, Robert Johnson has spoken about the benefits of Wireless Containment System in prisons and how it can prevent mishaps inside the prison. Citing his own example, he explained that hundreds of lives could be saved if prisons quickly adapt the Wireless Containment system in their facilities. He added that he had not seen any better technology than it.
