Securus Technologies Developing Technology to Stop Illegal Drone Droppings into Prisons

Securus Technologies is a company that takes pride in the fact that it offers some of the best products and services to the corrections space. The investigative technology offered by Securus Technologies is second to none. The law enforcement agencies and its officers have on many occasions praised Securus Technologies for its contributions to making the community safer and more secure. The company has spent millions on developing new technology that would allow the prison industries to make their facilities fully secured.

 

Many of the law enforcement officers have written e-mails to the company talking about how the company has helped in saving the lives of many officers and making the corrections’ environment safer than before. One of the reasons why the company has been able to perform consistently is because it continues to spend a lot on research. Recently, it invested over $40 million in research and development of wireless containment system. It is a technology that would make the contraband phones completely useless inside the prison. As the contraband phones won’t be able to connect to any commercial networks, it won’t be able to make or receive any calls.

 

Securus Technologies is also in the news recently for developing the advanced drone detection technology. It is a technology that is in the testing phase yet but is expected to be in use in many of the correctional facilities soon. As there has been a rise in the use of drones to supply contraband packages inside the prison, it has become vital to develop a technology that would combat the illegal use of drones. With the drone detection technology in place, the law enforcement agencies would be able to detect and know as soon as the drones enter the prison’s perimeter. It would help the correctional officers to take immediate measures to neutralize the drone carrying the contraband package. It would reduce the crime rate as well as the use of contraband items inside the prisons.

 

Drones are useful in many different industries, but since they have fallen into the wrong hands, they have become quite dangerous. Even though the areas near prisons are no-fly zones for drones, it has not stopped the criminals from using them to make drop-offs to their friends inside the prison. For inmates, having drugs, tobacco and even porn materials in their possession is a mark of power allowing them to influence other inmates and sometimes even the prison guards. Thus, there is a growing need to stop the drones from entering the prison and landing in places where they remain undetected by the guards. Securus Technologies is the first among these companies to take the threats seriously and ensure that the prisons have the chance to stop the misuse of these drones.
