Part of my job on the fugitive task force is to make this town safer each day. If we have a dangerous fugitive on the loose, then I use every possible resource to try and get him into custody. This month we were hunting a very dangerous bank robber who told the last teller that he ribbed that he was also wearing a bomb. The sooner that we got this suspect off the streets, the sooner we could restore calm in a community.
We usually rely heavily on tips from informants to close the gap on suspects, but this case was different. No one was willing to make any reports because this suspect was dangerous and could seek revenge on anyone who turned him in. My leads were beginning the bear fruit, when we got help from a very unusual source.
The team at Securus Technologies just installed a monitoring system that listened in on the calls all the inmates made from jail. A corrections officer notified me that there was chatter with one inmate in particular who was upset that this person owed him money, and considering how much he scored in his latest heist, he better cough up the cash. We didn’t know how reliable the source, so we decided to do some surveillance on that person of interest.
We discovered that this suspect was going to the same bank for a week straight, basically casing the place and learning how things operated. The day he packed his car with a bag, we decided to intercept him before he ever got to the jail. Thanks to Securus Technologies, we were able to arrest the suspect, find bags of cash in his residence, and even confiscate a bag that had a mast, gun, and a fake bomb he was planning on using.
Securus Technologies is one of the few communication companies that helps provide methods of communication for those incarcerated in jails and prisons across the country. The difference however, is that Securus Technologies is the most technologically advanced company and provides the broadest range of services in the country.
Securus reported recently in the news that the company has been able to use its advanced technology to help a different side of law enforcement. Because the company has so much advancement in their communication technology, they have been able to help law enforcement in a preventative manner.
Securus Technologies has used its services to isolate and find various crime either ongoing or about to happen in jails and prisons across the country. From crimes such as corrupt prison guards, to illegal contraband or drugs being used within the confines of jails and prisons, Securus has aided law enforcement in stopping those various crimes.
With the ever increasing growth in communication technologies, Securus will continue to invest in expanding and increasing its technologies available to inmates and their families. With that growth Securus will be able to aide law enforcement even further in preventing future or stopping ongoing crimes from behind bars. Inmates will have to make a decision in the future, either stop committing crimes during incarceration or be more careful about what they transmit in their communications.
Securus Technologies is so large in how many customers they service that nearly 1.2 million incarcerated inmates use Securus communication services on a regular basis. They provide their services to over 3,400 jails and prisons around the country. With that much connection, it will be very difficult for Securus not to have an impact in aiding law enforcement agencies in crime prevention.
