In order for officers working inside the jail to be safe, we have to be working hard each day to control the environment in which we work. On any given day, we are outnumbered by the inmates, and that gives them a huge advantage if they were to try to come after us. Now you include things like weapons or drugs, and the stakes get that much higher as we are now in for a real fight for our lives.
To try and limit any types of contraband from getting into the hands of the inmates, the first thing we do is surprise cell inspections throughout the day. If we can locate anything illegal inside the cells, then it can not be used to harm officers. We even check the mail each day for any traces of drugs. The inmates have become quite resourceful when it comes to coating the paper with liquid drugs, so we really need to be paying close attention.
We used to expend a ton of manpower having to listen to the inmates when they were using the phones. Since Securus Technologies installed their monitoring system, the LBS software gives my team the chance to focus our efforts on other areas while the system scans all the calls and immediately alerts us if something is of concern.
Securus Technologies is headed by their CEO, Rick Smith, who says his employees are all committed to making the world safe. This system is already in two thousand jails, and has been quite effective at reducing such incidents. Now we will get an alert from the system if an inmate is talking about weapons or drugs. There have been numerous tips already this month where we were able to take away the contraband from the inmates before they could do anyone harm.

Securus Technologies is a leader in making technology available to public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring branches of the civil and criminal justice systems.

One of Securus Technologies most recent investment has come by way of ConnectUs. A new technology that is greatly modernizing inmate communication systems.
Traditionally, inmates have only been able to use paper to file for requests that include: grievances, medical, handbook acceptance forms, etc. Costing correctional officers valuable time distributing, collecting, routing, logging, responding, copying, filing, archiving and storing forms. ConnectUs Automated Inmate Forms and Grievance Application hopes to change that. Custom forms for any type of request can be easily created and made available to inmates, in matter of minutes, instead of hours or days.
The application can process 13.8 forms per month per inmate. Inmates also benefit from self-service access to forms and from the ability to view the status of forms and grievances and accept or appeal them. Securus Technologies ConnectUs Automated Inmate Forms and Grievance Application is definitely a leader in groundbreaking technology for correction facilities. Something the inmates and correctional officers will greatly appreciate.
