Securus Technologies new innovation has a bunch of different applications that are all helpful to the criminal justice industry. If you have never heard of this company before, they are essentially a telephone company. They also provide Internet and video chat services to prisons that they have contracts with. Essentially, prisoners inside the prison that Securus Technologies has a contract to serve must make phone calls through this telecommunications company.
This allows Securus Technologies to intercept every single telephone call made in a prison that they have a contract with. Each of these telephone calls are recorded and logged by the telecommunications company. This creates quite a mountain of digital information. It would be mind-bogglingly impossible to search through all of this information by hand.
Securus Technologies gives law enforcement a powerful software innovation that allows officials to dig deep into this mountain of digital information. It can search all of these recorded telephone calls instantly. You can tell it to flag certain phrases or it can search for a singular person’s voice. This allows law enforcement officials to listen to every single phone call made by a person of interest.
This kind of technology has already been proven to prevent crimes. Law enforcement officers can gather detailed information about the flow of contraband into and out of prisons. But there are more applications for this kind of technology.
The technology allows police officers to understand which criminals are involved with each other. They can also record damning evidence that can be used for a conviction in a court of law. And the technology allows law enforcement officials to decode slang terms. This technology really makes it difficult to get anything by law enforcement officials. That is why I am rooting for Securus Technologies get more government contracts across the country.
