If the contraband phones can be kept away from the prisons, it can help in reducing the crime rate by a significant margin. The inmates use the contraband phones to control criminal activities outside the prison, and these phones are also used to pass on crucial information from inside the prison. It can put the lives of many officers at stake, and many of the officers have had to face assault or have even lost lives due to the crime coordinated from inside the prison by the inmates using the contraband phones.
Keeping the contraband phones off the hands of the criminals is of utmost importance for the law enforcement agencies. If the law enforcement agencies can’t keep the contraband phones away from prisoners, one can be sure that the crime rate would continue to rise in prison as well as outside in the communities. It is because the criminals who are incarcerated use contraband phones to control their criminal activities from inside the prison.
Securus Technologies, which is one of the well-known criminal justice technology providers in the correctional arena, recently launched the first ever successfully tried and tested contraband interdiction technology. It is this technology that is expected to make a lot of difference in the correctional sphere by not letting the prisoners use the contraband phones. What the wireless containment system by Securus Technologies does is put a shielded network across the length and breadth of the prison facility, so that no contraband phone can connect to the commercial system.
Without connecting to the commercial network, it would become impossible for the contraband phones to make or receive calls. The wireless containment system has been installed in the eight facilities so far by Securus Technologies, and the results so far have been astounding. The wireless containment solutions have been able to stop nearly 1.7 million illegal communications to go through. It marked how successful the wireless containment system is in eliminating the use of contraband phones inside the prison.
The FCC has been encouraging more and more prisons to start using the wireless containment system and has assured that it would reduce the formalities required to install the wireless containment system. Securus Technologies has for years been a leading supplier of correctional products and services in the United States and serves more than 3,450 correctional facilities, mostly in North America, District of Columbia, and Canada. It plans to roll out the wireless containment system soon to all the facilities it serves to ensure that the use of contraband phones is eliminated from the prisons. Securus Technologies has developed the wireless containment system after a lot of research and has guaranteed that the method is full-proof and futuristic.
