The crime prevention technological solutions that Securus Technologies is providing has significantly improved the safety situation in our prisons by availing a platform through which everything taking place in a facility can be monitored. We are happy about the vision your organization has for enhancing public safety, helping to make the surrounding in which we work secure, and preventing the proliferation of crimes involving inmate-on-inmate. In one correctional institution where I am attached, but which I dare not mention for reasons of protection of the innocent, we were able to monitor calls. The calls we intercepted revealed that drug cartels thrive in jails, and they sell the stuff to prisoners with impunity.
The management also became aware that some of the inmates have access to cellular devices which they use for carrying out money trade. After we had done a search, I discovered a network that diehard criminals employ for extortion, threatening others, and colluding with civilians to sell commissary items at discounts. Notably, we found a link to a previous incident in which there were gunshots by listening to calls between inmates. The conversation between a mother and two brothers will form a sound basis of evidence against the prisoners suspected of involvement in the shootings.
I would, therefore, like to take this opportunity to praise Securus Technologies for the leading role the organization is playing in assisting the investigation, prevention, and solving of crimes. Of particular importance to us is the covert feature embedded in your devices that alert us when something nasty is about to happen. By using it, we can haul suspect into custody even when investigations are in progress. This is quite commendable, and I urge you to keep the good work up.
