A good man had been shot for doing his job well. This good man was shot a total of six times in the chest and stomach, and his life has never been the same since then. The doctor already told his wife and family that he would not survive after the accident, as the bullets hit vital parts of his body, causing great damage, but he had other plans.
This man is Robert Johnson, a civil and criminal justice correctional officers whose primary task is to confiscate illegal contrabands in the prison he is working in such as improvised weapons, cash, narcotics, cellphones, and others. Robert was doing so good in his job that he earned the ire of several hardened inmates, and this almost cost him his life.
One morning, Robert Johnson heard a loud sound on his door, and he knew it was a hit ordered by an inmate using a contraband cellphone from inside the facility he’s working at. This almost cost him his life, but even after he survived the hit, it only made him more motivated to stop contraband items, especially cellphones inside prisons. One particularly disturbing incident motivated him more to continue this line of work. It was a hit, again ordered through contraband cellphone inside a prison, to kill a baby because that baby’s uncle did something that the inmate didn’t like.
Robert Johnson now is more passionate than ever to stop inmates’ use of contrabanded cellphones inside prisons, but he knew he couldn’t do it the old way. He knew that there should be a more efficient way to prevent criminals from doing more crimes inside prisons, and that’s when he started working with Securus Technologies as a consultant.
Securus Technologies is the leading technology provider for correctional facilities across the United States, and they have become known for their effective Wireless Containment Solution which is used to prevent contraband cellphones from being used for calls or internet.
Securus Technologies has prevented more than 1.7 inmate calls using contraband cellphones across the country. Several search and arrest warrants also have been issued with the help of systems provided by Securus that led to arrests of criminals outside the facility and even prison staff collaborating with inmates.
The company has developed many useful technological solutions for the prison environment, and their biggest strength is in the communication sector, where they improved the quality of the telephone services in many agencies and developed a tool for monitoring calls that had already been performed.
Another useful tool developed by the Securus Technologies is the Wireless Containment Systems, where they allow for law enforcers and owners of the prisons to control the wireless usage and keep track of the IP’s that connect.
This specific environment was changed when the entrepreneur responsible for the company almost died.
