I work the fugitive task force in my state and was recently out on the case to find and recover a dangerous thief who was holding up banks in the city and had recently escalated his activities to shooting a bank teller who did not cooperate with his demands. Seems the last bank this suspect robbed did not go as planned when one of the tellers dropped a die-pack in his bag that exploded as soon as he exited the jail. Now he goes for the vault and is using violence to get the staff at the bank to cooperate.
Looking at the evidence in the case, the only thing that I was able to come up with was that this suspect wore the same disguise to the banks and would hit the same banks in cycles. The problem was we had no way to know when he would strike again, so it was impossible to put an officer in each bank until he was caught. We had zero leads, we had zero tips, but we knew somebody knew something because these criminals have to be able to talk in order to pronounce how great they are at pulling off crimes.
On a trip to the local prison, I tried to get some inmates to talk about the fugitive, but they knew nothing. It wasn’t until we decided to make use of the inmate telephone system in the jail that was installed by Securus Technologies that we got a big break. The chatter between some inmates was that there was a person of interest who was spending large sums of cash he acquired from robbing banks to grow his drug empire. One of the guys selling drugs was arrested, and his conversations led us to a suspect who happened to be the suspect we were hunting all this time.
The role of technology within crime prevention is constantly adapting and changing. And while we are still many decades away from a “pre-crime” police force or the type of complete policed nation referenced in George Orwell’s classic, technology still plays a very valid role in today’s crime prevention and prosecution. As the streets are patrolled by officer equipped with recording devices designed to aid in the prosecution of criminals, the prison system has begun to utilize high tech tools to help maintain facility order and prevent further crimes from taking place within the prison walls.
Securus Technologies and Crime Prevention
The leader in prison and inmate communication technologies, Securus Technologies, actively provides prison officials and facilities with their state of teh art tech to help officials intercept criminals before any crimes can be committed within the facility. Though not a company to solely say that they are actively stopping crimes, Securus Technologies recently took to publishing an online piece showing just how they are helping fight crimes from happening in the first place.
The piece which was published recently, contains several excerpts from real clients’ testomonials about the Securus Technologies services as they apply to crime prevention.
Within each published comment, a trend becomes immediately apparent, the services and technologies supplied by Securus have helped officials and prison administrators prevent major crimes from happening with early detection. Though the crimes may be different, one client sang the praise of Securus for helping uncover a corrupt prison official’s contraband ring and another mentioned the technologies use in solving a shooting, the common theme of crime prevention and aid in prosecution rings true throughout each clients recorded testimony.

Technology has changed the way people communicate on a daily basis. With technology innovations such as the smart phone, people are able to do things today that were almost impossible a few years ago. People can communicate in a variety of ways using technology such as the smart phone. People can text, email, chat, call, or video conference to list a few.
Beyond the use of smartphones and similar devices, people can communicate with other technology. Companies such as Securus Technologies have developed technology that allows people to communicate using video. In the correctional facility environment, inmates can use the technology developed by Securus Technologies to have real time communication using voice and video to communicate with their family and friends.
The video visitation technology developed by Securus Technologies works by connecting a communication link using video. Inmates at a correctional facility can communicate with their family and friends during the Christmas season to get a first hand view of what is going on at home during Christmas.
Christmas is a special time of the year that family and friends come together to share moments. For individuals who are in corrections facilities, Christmas time can be very lonely. The thought of not being able to be with family and friends can be depressing. However, the video visitation technology by Securus Technologies provides a real time environment for people in corrections facilities to see the people they care about the most during Christmas.
I think that the technology provided by Securus Technologies is good technology that gives individuals in places like corrections facilities a very good way of communicating with love ones during the Christmas season. While nothing can take the place of being with family and friends on Christmas, the video visitation technology provided by Securus Technologies is a nice substitute.
Communication has been made much easier for people who cannot get to visit or have visits from family and friends during the Christmas holidays with technology such as the video visitation technology developed by Securus Technologies.
