We want criminals to pay for what they have done. Even more importantly though, we want to make sure they will no longer hurt other people. There was a wonderful age before the cell phone where we could guarantee that was happening. Before the cell phone was introduced, it was exceedingly difficult for inmates to get messages to their loyal friends on the outside. However, now with a cell phone, they can easily plot crimes that continue to hurt innocent people.
Securus Technologies has developed a strategy to stop these contraband cell phones are hurting people. The first part of the strategy has to do with containing the phone calls into a sphere of safety. They do this by erecting towers around your prison system. Once they have done this, the inmate’s phones will connect to the towers and believe they are still connected to their local network. From here, Securus Technologies can listen to all voicemails, uncover current and past text messages, listen to the phone calls, redirect them, or drop them. By doing this, they have been able to stop people from calling those friends outside, and also have been able to stop people from committing crimes.
The second strategy that Securus Technologies takes is the elimination of cell phones inside the correctional facility. This is accomplished by setting up multiple analyzers that can scan throughout the hallways and through the stone walls. Whenever a cell phone that is not registered with Securus Technologies is turned on, this scanning system will detect them and send a notice of its location to local authorities.
Securus Technologies was started by a man named officer Johnson. Officer Johnson was the victim of a crime that occurred because of a contraband cell phone. A local mob boss was in officer Johnson’s prison and officer Johnson disciplined him by putting him in solitary confinement. The mob boss did not appreciate such treatment and when he got out he put a bounty on the head of officer Johnson using a contraband cell phone. One morning when officer Johnson was ready to leave for work, the hitman sprung his attack. Before officer Johnson could react, he heard the fire of six gunshots and felt pain in his chest and the warmth of blood going down it. Officer Johnson survived the attack and went on to create Securus Technologies so that this evil will not continue to hurt others.
