Part of my job responsibility inside the prison is making certain that everyone is safe. Not only do I have to pay close attention to my fellow officers, but I must make certain that inmates, their guests, and all staff working behind the prison walls are safe as well. This is no easy task because the prison that I work has a huge violent gang population that would jump at the chance to hurt a person in an authoritative position.
To maintain order, we try to give the inmates respect, but when it comes to gang life, you follow your brothers and you never side with the police. These inmates have developed incredibly crafty ways to get access to things like drugs and weapons while behind bars, so we focus our efforts each day in eliminating the contraband to make the jail safer for us all.
We usually place a huge police presence in the inmate visitor center to try and stop things like drugs from getting to the inmates. We will follow up these efforts doing cell inspections during the afternoon to try and recover anything that may have slipped by. In the past we would even listen in on the jail phones for conversations by the inmates concerning drugs or weapons. Thanks to Securus Technologies, we do not have to utilize valuable man-power in that phone monitoring center any longer.
Securus Technologies has designed an inmate call monitoring system that can scan calls at the same time and identify when any verbiage about contraband is spoken. The company is based out of Dallas, and all thousand of the Securus Technologies employees work tirelessly to keep the world safe for all. Now the LBS software is identifying issues that me and my officers can take care of in a more timely manner.
