Dallas based Securus Technologies provides high tech solutions that assist our criminal justice system in an assortment of ways; investigation, assuring public safety, monitoring inmates and all issues involved in solving and preventing crimes during incarceration. There are a myriad of inmate activities that can be both harmful to other inmates or society at large, and Securus Technologies provide the protection that cannot be attained with traditional low tech methods.
In reading a forum of satisfied customer comments compiled on October 21st 2016, I found myself overwhelmed by the varied ways in which Securus Technologies serve to aid virtually every aspect of the criminal justice process. The technology can be used to monitor phone calls, obtain details which can assist in getting evidence for arrests, search warrants, getting details on contraband in the prison, plans to do harm to other inmates and the list is virtually endless. The investigative tools have evolved to provide an entirely new level of capabilities for the staff in any correctional institution.
As someone who is often curious about the criminal justice system and fascinated by the abnormal psychology of the inmates who inhabit those institutions, I have sometimes chosen to vicariously expose myself to that world – safely within the bounds of watching a reality television show about incarceration. I can easily see how the Securus Technology tools would serve to interrupt a great number of devious strategies and allow the correctional staff to take proactive measures to deter the inmate’s plans from their very inception. Sadly, the criminal nature of this population makes it necessary to override any individual privacy rights in lieu of protecting the greater good. Regardless of how diligent the correctional staff might strive to be, I believe the Securus Technology tools provide that ever present eye that is so necessary.
