Robert Johnson, a former correctional facility worker, has always told his inspiring story about his efforts to ensure that inmates do not access cell phone. He believes that it is hazardous for the prisoners to be allowed to be in possession of cell phones. Johnson was once an employee of the South Carolina-based Lee Correctional Institution. By 2010, he had served the facility for about 15 years, and his primary responsibility was to confiscate contraband items. He did his work perfectly, and this led to his shooting while he was at home. Approximately two weeks before the occurrence of the incident, Robert had confiscated a smuggled package that was worth about $50,000.
On March 5, 2010, the correctional facility employee woke up and 5:30 a.m to prepare for work. During that time, an intruder entered his home and shot him six times in the chest and stomach. The shooting was severe to the extent that the doctors believed that he would not make it. He even died twice during an operation. The hit was made by an ex-convict, Sean Echols, who had been contacted by inmates by using a contraband phone. Echols had been paid $6000. Many other crimes have been ordered by prisoners who are in jail by using smuggled phones. For example, a nine-month-old baby was shot in Georgia while in the arms of his mother. It is believed that the child was murdered because his uncle did something that the inmates did not like.
Johnson currently serves Securus Technologies as a paid consultant. The company has specialized in the provision of paid calls for the inmates. It has also been working to ensure that prisoners do not have contraband phones. Correctional facilities would wish to jam cell phone signals to prevent inmates from making unauthorized phone calls, but this is against the federal laws. Securus Technologies has developed a product that is known as the Wireless Containment Solution to address this problem. This is an exclusive technology that detects cell phones and blocks the inmates from making calls from their contraband phones.
The Wireless Containment Solution uses a powerful antenna that sends a signal to the contraband cell phones to capture phone calls that enter or come from a correctional facility. An individual using the phone may think that he or she is connected to the common network and this enabled the product to work without being noticed. The solution is very selective, and it only allows authorized phone numbers to connect. All numbers that are not recognized are not allowed to go through. The system, however, allows 911 calls to be completed. According to Securus Technologies’ administration, the Wireless Containment Solution has barred more than 1.7 million calls from the time it was launched.
Securus Technologies has been providing its users with an incredible platform of communications that aren’t necessarily available for utilization elsewhere. Due to this beautifully designed program being utilized in many of today’s correctional facilities, many crimes are being stopped and investigated, as law enforcement officials are given access to the conversations that occur between inmates and the visitors they choose to communicate with.
The developers of Securus Technologies understood that visitors of inmates often face dilemmas when setting up appointments for visitation schedules. Visitation may not be as convenient as they may have initially thought, as the times/dates that are provided to them for visiting a facility may be very inconvenient for them. Not only that, the drive that is required of them may be very lengthy and time consuming. Not only might time be wasted on what could have essentially been a quick phone call to the inmate, but so might gas expenses. Although a phone call is always a quick and easy option of keeping in touch with anyone, when it comes to jail visitation sessions, no form of communication is necessarily comparable to the type of connection/bond a face to face conversation provides. Securus Technologies offers inmates and their visitors to engage in such face to face forms of communications without requiring the visitor to physically visit the facility.
Securus Technologies is putting a stop to crime in many ways. Firstly, it’s a program that’s giving law enforcement officials the right to monitor conversations and hand over to courts should it be necessary. Secondly, it’s preventing inmates from not only speaking about illegal matters over the communicative platform, but it’s also preventing them from engaging in such activities altogether, as they’re aware that other inmates may speak about the incidents of others, thus, there always being a chance of an investigation opening on them.
