The law enforcement industry can be one of the most challenging in the world. For people that work for correctional facilities, there are many different challenges that are not similar to any other industry. One challenge that law enforcement and correctional facility professionals have to deal with is trying to prevent crime from occurring inside and outside of the prison. For those that are tasked with preventing crime, finding an option to use technology to help prevent it would always be beneficial.
One company that is continuing to provide quality technology and service to the correctional facility in law enforcement industry is Securus Technologies. Securus Technologies, which has been in business for about 10 years, has started out by providing communication services to law enforcement facilities. Today, they provide these services to more than 1,000 facilities across the country. While they have traditionally provided communication Services, they have recently expanded to ride security services as well.
Today, one of the main products that Securus Technologies provides to its clients is a video visitation service. This video visitation service allows an inmate of a facility to have an intimate face-to-face conversation with someone do a video visitation platform. This platform can then be connected to the other party’s phone or tablet. These phone calls have helped to make prisoners feel more connected and had provided a relief to the administrative burden that comes with more in-person visitation.
While the video visitation had already provided a lot of benefits to all parties involved, it has also now started to show that it can help prevent crime as well. Whenever requested, Securus Technologies can provide a call monitoring service for the facilities as well. These monitoring services can allow someone working for the company to monitor any incoming or outgoing call. If the company notices suspicious activities on the call, they will be able to send it to the law enforcement facility which can then use it as evidence.
