An Artist Performs
Some criminals don’t seem to be very intelligent. Securus Technologies has been taking advantage of these types of criminals for some time now with a new software innovation. But before you understand the software innovation, you must understand what Securus Technologies actually does.
Securus is a lot like your telephone, cable and Internet provider except they deal exclusively with corrective facilities. It is not the kind of company you can call up to order services. This company signs government contracts that make them the only provider of telecommunications services to a particular corrective facility for a period of time.
Securus takes its job very seriously. They not only provide telecommunications services to inmates, but they provide innovations to assist law enforcement. The company is all in when it comes to making us safer.
The innovative telecommunications company takes it upon themselves to record every telecommunication sent or received by an inmate. These recordings include telephone calls, emails and video chats. As you can imagine, all of this digital information really piles up making it difficult to search.
But new software can dig through this mountain of digital data to find one particular telecommunication. It can search for key phrases or a particular individual’s voice. This software tool has allowed law enforcement to catch a murderer.
The murderer was an older sibling in jail. He was talking to his little brother who did not have a criminal record. The boy’s mother was also listening in on the conversation. The older sibling told the younger sibling what to say when questioned by police over a shooting. It was this recording that convicted the older brother of a murder.
Securus is really setting the tone in the prison telecommunications industry. Prisoners enjoy their services and reasonable prices while law enforcement benefits from innovative technologies.
