Securus Technologies Allows Prisons to Stop Smuggling of Illegal Goods Using Their Drone Detection Technology

Published / by rattlin

Securus Technologies has been the leader in the corrections space since 1986 when it was first established with the merger of two leading telecom firms, Evercom and T-Netix. Over the years, Securus Technologies has played a significant role in the progress that the corrections space has made, especially by introducing some of the unique and instrumental correctional technologies. The investigative technologies developed by Securus Technologies have helped in saving lives of many inmates as well as the law enforcement officers. The investigative technology aids in gathering information that not only helps in catching the culprits but also at times, assists in damage control and preventing the crime altogether. Apart from criminal justice and investigative technology, Securus Technologies also provides inmate communications and parolee tracking service.

 

Drones have become a large part of many professions, and it has been difficult to imagine that they would be used by criminals. But, the truth is that they are sought after by the criminals as they are easily available on the market and can be bought without any problem. Today, these drones come with multiple features including cameras that allow a person to operate them without being near the drone. It has made it easier for the criminals to tie packages to these drones and then drop them inside the prisons. Even though most of the prisons have tight security and high walls, it does not stop these drones from flying over them. They can fly high up in the sky without being detected by the naked eye. Thus, the time has come to look for other ways to stop the drones from breaching the security of these prisons. The inmates use these drones to have many illegal products delivered inside. But, if these drones start to deliver weapons and bombs inside the prison, it would become very difficult for the prison officials to contain the inmates. Thus, it is essential that new technologies are adapted that would help in their detection.

 

From time to time, Securus Technologies develops new technologies that would help the company to not only consolidate its position in the correctional sector but also help the corrections space to face the challenges it faces confidently. Two of the latest technologies developed by Securus Technologies are wireless containment system and drone detection technology. The company designed these technologies due to the fact that the amount of contraband supplies reaching the inmates in the prisons has reached unprecedented levels in the last few years. If drones continue to move around the prisons and drop the supplies to the prisoners without getting caught, one can be sure that the lives of inmates and the corrections officers would be in danger. Securus Technologies recently launched the pilot program of the drone detection technology, which works similarly as the wireless containment system it launched earlier.
