Securus Technologies Officials Talks about the Importance of Wireless Containment System in Prisons

One of the most challenging jobs in the world is for those people who work in the prison industry. It is the prison officials who handle and control the inmates in prison that are sometimes very dangerous. It is no surprise that the prison officials have to deal with a lot of physical and mental abuses and so do their family members. Even though the inmates are locked up inside the prison, it does not stop them from planning criminal activities using the cell phones that they manage to smuggle inside the prison. While it was not a big issue till a few years back, the advancing technology has led to the cell phones size becoming much smaller making it easier to smuggle inside the prison. They then use it to plan and execute their plans efficiently without being caught. Even though there are many security measures in place, the criminals still find some way to get the cell phones smuggled inside and use them to their advantage. These also become a threat to the family members as they can easily target anyone without being free themselves.

 

No one knows the ill-effects of cell phones usage inside the prison by inmates than Robert Johnson. He was a correctional officer at the Lee Correctional Institution in Florida. His main responsibility was to find smuggled things inside the prison and confiscate them from the inmates. Not everyone was happy with the work that they did, and it has led him to make many enemies inside the prison. One week, he confiscated a huge amount of drugs that were meant for distribution to the inmates. It led to the inmates create a plan to murder him, and they paid a person outside of prison to kill him. Just after a week, he was attacked by a masked man inside his house who managed to find out all information about him. He was shot many times but was strong enough to pull through. He spent months healing in the hospital, and it led him to make efforts to make prisons safer for his colleagues once he came out.

 

Robert currently is employed with Securus Technologies and work on the new Wireless Containment System that allows them to block the use of cell phones inside the prison. Only some authorized calls can be made from inside the prison while all others are dropped as soon as they come in contact with the system. Securus Technologies have been working towards implementing the new system at all of the prisons that they service. They have already started the installation of the wireless containment system in many different prisons and hope that it would help make prisons much safer than they were previously.
