My job on the fugitive task force is making the streets safer for everyone, and when we have a suspect on the loose committing violent crimes we have to get him in custody quickly. This month we had a very violent offender on the loose, and he was not shy about telling the community who he was. When he robbed a bank or held up a gas station, he never concealed his identity, daring officers to try and stop him.
Each week his crimes seems to escalate to the point we were seeing his victims wind up in the hospital for doing nothing more than complying with his orders. When he robbed a gas station and beat the attendant with his pistol because she looked at him funny, we decided to take thing to a new level and hit the jail to locate anyone who could help. During our visit we were told by corrections officers that Securus Technologies placed a new inmate call monitoring system inside the jail that was doing the work of a dozen officers, we decided to investigate.
Within minutes, the entire prison population knew I was on the premises looking for information on the suspect. While they didn’t talk to me directly, I knew my appearance would spark them to talking to each other or family on the outside. Within an hour, the Securus Technologies call system picked up chatter from one inmate telling his family to get our suspect a message. That call was key because it lead us to a location we did not yet have on our radar.
The next day, we had a team in position and the suspect walked right into the trap. He was taken into custody without incident thanks to Securus Technologies call monitoring system, a new resource we use anytime we want to make our city streets safer.
Each day that I show up for work as a police officer is more dangerous than the day before. Criminals today will stop at nothing to enjoy their freedom, and hurting an officer just comes with the territory when they are on the run. The trouble that I have while hunting these criminals is that many already have a support network of family, friends, or gang members who are willing to go to any lengths to help their friends stay free.
When we get tips from informants, we have to act on everything. The criminals have actually gotten even smarter over the years because they know we have to act on those calls, so what they do is have their friends call in fake reports that we have to follow-up, so the suspect can conduct business on the other side of town with less of a police presence because our resources are chasing those leads.
We have been able to gain back some of that momentum lately with the help of Securus Technologies. When they installed a new inmate communication system in our jail, it allowed our officers to hear conversations from the criminals perspective, without any fake leads or misdirection. The inmates think when they talk on the phone that their coded conversations slip by us, but the LBS software that Securus Technologies trained us to us alerts us when certain discussions are taking place.
Now when we are hunting a suspect, we return to that jail and listen in to calls between his former cellmates, his friends, or his fellow gang members. Usually when there is chatter about the suspect, it is a solid lead that we follow immediately. This has given us the chance to not only catch some suspects in the act of committing crimes, we have found fugitives that have been on the run for years thanks to Securus Technologies.
Securus Technologies is enabling your average citizen to prevent crime. The company provides all the telephone services going into and out of a contracted prison. All of this telecommunication is recorded by the company and stored in a massive digital database. These telephone recordings are admissible in court and can be used by law enforcement officers to prevent crimes, extend investigations or develop new leads.
I think your average citizen is pretty concerned about crime prevention. Crime prevention saves lives and injury. That’s why your average citizen can team up with Securus Technologies and law enforcement to help prevent crime.
Since all of these telephone calls are recorded, anybody that knows somebody on the inside of a prison can help law enforcement get critical information. They can call their friend or family member inside of the prison to start a conversation about criminal activity on the outside of a prison.
Perhaps the incarcerated person is a part of the gang. That gang member would know the plans of his organized criminal enterprise. In order to prevent crime, a friend or family member can call that person and talk about that criminal activity while law enforcement listens in.
But a new technological innovation from Securus Technologies allows citizens to get this information without the help of law enforcement at the time. They can simply make a phone call to their friend or loved one, talk about any criminal activity they may be involved with and then alert law enforcement. The software program enables a police officer to scan all of the recorded telephone calls for a single individual’s voice. All of the phone calls involving that particular vocal signature will be displayed and can be reviewed immediately. This technological innovation ensures that law enforcement will not miss any critical information passing through the telephone lines of a jail.
Securus Technologies have significantly challenged the Global Tel Link (GTL) technologies. I prefer Securus technologies rather than the GTL as it is offering high technological solutions for civil and criminal justices by investigating correcting, monitoring data for public safety. It has challenged its chief competitor GTL by having the best telephone calling platform. It also has an extraordinary customer service. Securus has invested 700 million dollars in their business which is greater than the GTL investment.
Securus has a 600% call answer performance which exceeds the GTL performance. This is enhanced by its ability to have a locally based call center ran by Securus staffs. While GTL contracts out most of its customer services, Securus train their workers who serve the customers better. GTL do not have enough skilled employees, so it farms out its work to unskilled employees who have poor communication skills.
Securus has the best VOIP which has made its customers get software upgrades at affordable prices and quicker as opposed to GTL. Many clients thus prefer Securus whose preference ratio is currently 3:1. It also offers affordable call rates raising its preference far above that of the GTL.
I also fancy Securus because of it’s robust IT works, IT resources, and the products they produce. Securus technologies have the best soft wares which reach their customers quicker and always have the latest upgrades. It also serves the customers better by providing fast emergency responses and public information.
I rank Securus Technologies high as it makes one live in a peaceful world as it ensures it’s a safe place to live by eliminating threatening communications. It does this by recording inmates private information. It secures the world by scrutinizing inmates’ calls and supervising their behaviors through video surveillance.
This great company has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas, and serves over 3450 public safety, law enforcement, and corrections agencies. Securus great strides over the years have made it be ranked high receiving clients from all over the world.
