Securus Technologies and How Its Wireless Containment Solutions Advocates Safer Prison Facilities


There are too many articles to read right now that could explain the threats, challenges and security issues that alert us to the possibility of a significant terror in our corrections facilities. As experts understand it, it’s getting riskier now to facilitate the operations of these jail facilities because of new technologies. In the case of the solutions being provided by Securus Technologies, the challenge still resonates with Securus on how they can prevent the threats to the security of the officers and inmates working in such facilities. We can consider this situation carefully by going back to the tragedy that Robert Johnson experienced, an officer at the Lee Correctional Institution based in South Carolina.


The Intruder

Robert Johnson is rarely taken aback by new changes in his work schedules, but one instance that upended his daily routine while working in the Lee Correctional is when he confiscated a bunch of package in prison. That package turned out to be one of the most expensive contrabands that got through the prison system, and that caused a lot of outrage from the malicious parties that owned it. Two weeks later after that incident, Robert Johnson was shot in his chest while he was at home. He was so good at his job that his life was threatened by it. I think it took a lot of courage to work for the correctional facilities, but the fact that Robert was able to come through alive from that incident is an indication of how persevering and lucky he was. I think the point, too, that Robert survived the shooting means that he might still have something to live for today and that’s why he was even made alive by the Divine Powers that govern everything in the world, should there be any.

On a brighter note, I am convinced that the successful surgery of Robert Johnson is just a sign that he’s stronger now after that incident and if anything he still has a more significant fight to face. That fight is in the form of being now part of Securus Technologies. He now works for the company and helps in deploying and advising clients about Securus’ Wireless Containment Solutions.


The Hang-up Protocol

In being Securus Technologies’ line up of services, the Wireless Containment Solutions (WCS) from the company stands out because it can offer solutions that would prevent what Robert Johnson had experienced. The Securus’ tool will be able to stop illegal communication that goes through the prisons that deploy this tool. I believe this WCS tool is a fantastic program that would help initiate the new ways that could fantastically improve the security environment in any correctional facility. If contraband cellphone calls are cut off or hang up by WCS, then there’s no way that inmates can get cellphone commands to signal an attack against an outsider come through the prison vicinity.
