Based within Austin, Texas is a tech company that specializes in creating safety products. These safety products have been implemented into law enforcement, correctional facilities, public safety sectors, and have been used by private investigators to keep their homes secure. Securus Technologies can be found keeping over 1000 prisons safe and protecting the 1.2 million prisoners that live inside.
Securus Technologies devotes most of its time to keeping inmates safe from one another and stopping inmates from continuing criminal activity on the outside. Over the years, criminals have become more crafty in finding ways to bypass the security measures implemented by Securus Technologies. Perhaps one of the most inventive ones has been using drones to deliver contraband items into the prison system.
Often when you think of hobby drones you think of them taking photographs of pretty birds or landscapes or following some kid arriving on his bicycle. However, drones are also being used to bring illegal merchandise into the yards of prisons. These illegal drones carry items such as drugs, pornography, cell phones, and weapons.
Securus Technologies takes this invasion from criminals extremely seriously. They understand that these items pose a threat to the personnel who run the correctional facilities and the inmates living inside and even those living in the residential districts surrounding the prison. They have put their heads together with some of the brightest in the industry and they believe that they can use a system known as the Wireless Containment Solutions to prevent these drones from delivering their goods.
After working with engineers for over 18 months, Securus Technologies believes that the Wireless Containment Solutions will be capable of locking onto the unique signature of each drone and sending an electrical pulse that will immediately disrupt its connection causing it to fall to the ground. They want to get to the point however that they can manually override its technology and begin controlling it themselves.
Securus Technologies has recently received many awards proving that it is the top choice for anybody needing safety technology. They have recently received three Stevie Awards in the areas of innovation and customer service. Their customer service team received the gold award for its work in dealing with customer complaints and using it to create further innovation in the company. Within their customer service team, the vice president was able to take home the silver award for her hard work in ensuring that customers receive what they ask for. Lastly, their visual team received the bronze award for successfully monitoring and stopping many crimes before they were committed. Securus Technologies can hold its head proud knowing it is making this world a safer place to live in for us all.
