Securus Technologies Helping Correctional Facilities Stop the Use of Contraband Phones through the WCS Technology

The prisons in the United States are tired of the menace created due to the contraband phones lately. Even when the law enforcement agencies have been trying their best to eliminate the use of contraband phones in prison, the problem doesn’t seem to be going away at all. There are many prisons where the smuggling of contraband phones have been reported, and it has been the reason behind the many crimes that have been committed, inside and outside of the prison. Most of all, the use of contraband phones can put the lives of people in danger, and it is something that cannot be taken lightly.

 

One of the companies that have been taking the use of contraband phones seriously, and has been working on developing a technology to eliminate the contraband phones’ use inside the prison is Securus Technologies. The company was established in 1986 and since then has contributed immensely to the corrections space by not only providing inmate communication services, but also by offering its vast array of other services, including governmental information management system, parolee tracking system, and more.

 

The company has been trying to develop technology that would stop the use of contraband phones in the prison for a long time and recently rolled out the Wireless Containment Solutions finally. It is this technology that the company installed in the eight facilities it serves, where it managed to stop nearly 1.7 million illegal communications successfully. As per the record, the contraband interdiction technology by Securus Technologies is the only such technology that is approved and accepted for use in the correctional facilities.

 

The country was in shock recently when a video made by an inmate from inside the prison facility went viral. One of the inmates made a video from a contraband phone brandishing a knife and posted it on a social media network. It revealed the vulnerabilities in the prison facility’s security, and also showcased the level to which the contraband phones’ problem has risen in the past few years. The FCC recently announced that it would expedite the process of allowing the Wireless Contraband Solutions to be installed in the prison facilities and ease the load of paperwork and licensing it needs to ensure the installation is done at the earliest without delay.

 

Robert Johnson, who is a former corrections officer, was shot six times in chest and stomach by a criminal at his house because he confiscated a contraband package worth over $50,000. The order for his murder was given through a contraband phone. He is currently with the Securus Technologies as a consultant and wants to make the WCS technology full-proof so that the use of contraband phones can be eliminated entirely from the prisons.

Fagali’i airport is owned and ran by Polynesian Airlines. In the beginning stages, the Fagali’i airstrip was a grass-only airstrip. Years later, the airstrip became sealed and solid. This advancement subsequently allowed the airport to be reopened in July of 2002. In January of 2005, the airport was closed because of the concerns the officials and locals had. Safety and noise were the main problems that led to that decision.
