When I show up to work at the local prison, I know that I am entering a very dangerous and hostile environment where inmates want to take me out at any opportunity they can. This is why me and my fellow officers go to great lengths to try and make the jail as safe a working environment as possible. These are a few of the things we do daily that aid in our efforts to maintain safety for everything behind those prison walls.
My team head to the inmate cells each morning to do inspections and look for any type of illegal contraband. We then move to the visitor center where we do physical searches of all the guests, then wait until they have concluded and check the inmates before they return to their cells. My team used to have to designate time each day monitoring the phones to listen when the inmates are talking, but not since we had Securus Technologies install their updated monitoring system.
Securus Technologies CEO, Richard Smith, says all of his employees of this Dallas-based company are committing their time to making the world safer. Now that my team has learned how to use the LBS software, we can focus on making our immediate surroundings safer. The monitoring system now scans the calls the inmates are making and will alert my team if any chatter is heard.
Since the installation of the new monitoring system, we have been alerted to calls where one inmate discussed how easy it was to conceal his drugs inside the yard of the prison. One inmate bragged about selling drugs, while another begged his mother to sneak him in some of her prescription drugs. Each time we get the alert, we take swift and immediate action to ensure this is not a problem after today.
Securus Technologies is a leading communication technology provider for detainees that connect them with their family and friends, connect them to technology and emergency dispatchers.

The company serves the needs of the inmate while simultaneously monitor the exchange of information and helps in parolee tracking. Securus is at its early stages of launching the wireless containment solution technology that hinders mobile networks connecting to a contraband illegal cell phone.
Under the able leadership of Richard A. Smith “Rick” as the Chairman and Chief Operating Officer of Securus Technologies, the company has received positive feedback from the facilities currently using the feature. Securus Technology has been able to make the environment more safe using the investigative tools and the data control unit that tells of any suspicious communication such as verbal harassment and threats. Similarly, it has become effective in enhancing communication within and without thanks to the supportive customer service.
Some feedback has been very humbling as facility expresses their satisfaction, strides it has trended on and the shift of the incarceration environment. Word has it that this technology is highly reliable with the report of some facility with over 23 years since its inception which has progressively been content with the system. Even with consistent use, quality and flawlessness are guaranteed.

Securus answers Global Tel Link’s campaign of misleading press releases.
Securus Technologies of one of the leading companies that offer technological solutions for corrections, investigation, public safety, and monitoring. Securus Technologies has issued numerous correction statements to the many press releases published by Global Tel Link. According to Securus Technologies, Global Tel Link’s press releases contain various statements which are indeed inaccurate and misleading. The purpose of this press release by Securus Technologies is to provide clarification and correct information on several incorrect claims of Global Tel Link.
GTL Allegation #1: we are just a few months away from resuming our court cases to show the world and the federal statutes how Securus Technologies is infringing this patent and three other patents for Global Tel link. Securus Technologies targeted These patents for IPR challenges. However, they were ultimately validated by the security team at PTAB.
Securus Corrections #1: With concern to the claims made by Global Tel Link that they are only “months away” from resuming their tedious court cases, is unlikely that the jurisdiction will proceed to the trial level. Because of the high court cost of the court cases, none of the two affected parties will get to court this year as claimed by GTL.
Global Tel Link is quite aware that patent litigation of this nature cost millions of dollars to pursue and take multiple years. For this reason, we are questioning whether the lawsuit approach by Global Tel Link makes sense regarding the best interests of their company. However, Securus Technologies is determined to defend both themselves and the corrections community suffering from GTL’s injustice.
