Securus Releases New Product Line

The law enforcement and correctional facility industry is an incredibly important and valuable industry that provides extremely necessary services to keep people safe. While these facilities and organizations have some very skilled and well-trained staff, they also have a reliance on products and services provided by innovative companies. One company that has been providing very innovative and valuable services to the law-enforcement industry for more than 10 years is Securus Technologies.


Securus Technologies is best known for being a leading provider of communications and security services. The company, which has grown significantly in size over the past decade, is best known for it video visitation service that is used by hundreds of facilities across the country. This product has provided the facilities with the ability to allow clear and secure video chat sessions between inmates and loved ones. This service has been very well appreciated and received by both the inmates as well as those that work in the properties.


While Securus Technologies may be best known for their communications services, it also provides a lot of different security services as well. Over the past few weeks, the organization has announced a new security technology that could solve a very challenging problem.


One of the more growing challenges that prisons are having is controlling the use of illegal cell phones. Cell phones are almost always illegal for inmates to use. Unfortunately, these can be difficult for the facility to keep out entirely. While they can have a best practices in place, it always seems that some phones can get snuck into the property. This can create a very serious problem as it is impossible to monitor and control communication.


Fortunately, Securus Technologies has a new innovative product that could help to revolutionize the industry. The new product and service that they are able to provide is called a wireless containment system. The wireless containment system can be set up in the perimeter of the prison. This system can then completely block all incoming and outgoing calls and signals to the cell phone. This will then ultimately make the cell phone useless for any inmate.


Once a person is able to set up the wireless containment system, they will have the ability to block all calls to phones that are not approved. At the same time, they will be able to approve certain cell phones to be functional in the prison. This will make it possible for a person to continue to use employee cell phones when necessary. As Securus continues to roll out this product they will also be able to find new ways to make the system for functional for all of their clients.
