In order to maintain a degree of order inside the prison, me and my team of officers need to be able to spot potential trouble and to keep inmates from hurting one another. In extreme cases, prisoners who have extended sentence have no regard for officers either, so if they have the chance, they will try to injure us as well. To maintain peace, we have to work diligently each day to spot potential trouble.
One of the things that we do each day is to listen to the inmates when they are using house phones. The process used to be time consuming and utilized too many officers that could have been doing other things in the jail to keep order. It wasn’t until this year when Securus Technologies was asked to update the system did we realize we had something quite special on our hands.
Securus Technologies is currently working in thousands of different jails all across the country to keep those facilities safe. Thousands of employees at the Dallas-based Securus Technologies are working hard each day to make sure the world is safer for us all. The LBS software allows officers to be able to work inside the prison while the software scans the inmate calls and alerts my team if any type of chatter pertaining to contraband is overheard.
To date, the LBS software has been instrumental in helping my team to clean up violent crimes inside the jail. We discovered one inmate was not only getting drugs in the visitor center, he was selling them in the yard. Another inmate was overheard telling his gang brothers how he was able to use drugs in his cell at night when the lights were out. Each instance we took immediate action to make the prison safer for all that are behind these walls.
