Securus Technologies Helps Solve Crimes Behind The Scenes
Real life is rarely like to crime shows you see on television. Although in real life we sometimes do catch the guilty parties, it is often not with all of the high drama that comes with television. In real life there are a lot of unsung heroes who deserve praise for the work they do to keep us all safe. One of these heroes is Securus Technologies.
This company develops many of the technologies used by law enforcement in our nation’s prisons. They create everything from phone call monitoring technologies to covert alert systems that can aid in active investigations.
Recently the company was looking for some feedback on the products that they make. They asked members of the law enforcement community to write in or e-mail them about the technologies that they use while on the job. The responses that the company got back were truly amazing.
You might be surprised to learn that the technologies from Securus sometimes even catch bad behavior within law enforcement itself. One official said that he used some of the call monitoring technologies to intercept phone calls from a corrupt member of his own team. It turns out that this individual was behaving unethically and needed to be spoken to about it. Just by doing this the officer was able to solve one issue right then and there.
Other people in the industry mentioned that they could intercept calls which allowed them to catch one sibling attempting to coach another on how to answer questions asked of him about his involvement in a recent shooting. It was information that was very useful to the investigation and clear evidence that there was something fishy going on.
Securus is often behind the scenes and does not take up much as the limelight. However, do not let this lead you to believe that they do not deserve the praise that they occasionally receive as a result of their good work. They certainly do and their services are very valuable to use all.
