Securus Technologies Helping Protect Local Residents

When my team is called on to help catch a dangerous suspect in the area, we have to act quick because innocent lives are at stake. This was a very troubling situation because two brothers were released from prison the same week, and both returned to their life of crime almost immediately after getting back on the streets. These two suspects were armed, and they were already responsible for a shooting that night. It was clear to us that these two had little regard for officers, so if an innocent victim got in their way, they would have little trouble seriously hurting that person.

 

My team had a long road ahead because both of these suspects had a huge network of friends helping to keep them from going back to prison. These friends would go as far as call in fake reports to throw us off the trail of these suspects, making it more challenging because we had to deploy resources to each of those calls instead of focusing on the two suspects. I was about to turn this case on its end when I headed to the local jail for some evidence collection. I knew that there were inmates in the prison who had dealings with these two, I was just hoping there was one person who had a beef with them and would slip up and give me the information needed to finally catch them for good.

 

Securus Technologies recently installed a very complex inmate call monitoring system in our prison, and it was going to aid me in finding these suspects. Securus Technologies CEO, Rick Smith, says all of his thousand employees are dedicated to fighting to make the world safer for us all. When I learned how to use the LBS software, it didn’t take long to pick up chatter between inmates concerning my suspects. The system does the work of many corrections officers, so we knew it was only a matter of time before we had the information we needed.

 

The inmates were talking to the suspects in some cases, where the suspects would call me out by name and say if I decided to find them that I would have a gun fight on my hands. I was able to use the information collected from the Securus Technologies monitoring system to locate where these two were hiding, and with the size of weapons at that location, we didn’t arrive a minute too soon. If those two had the chance to prepare, we could have had a gunfight on our hands that would have lasted hours, Instead, we were able to catch them sleeping at dawn and completely catch them off guard without weapons in hand.
