Securus Technologies recently received not only an A+ rating (the highest any company can achieve) from the Better Business Bureau, but they receive a formal accreditation from the Bureau. This accreditation comes after years of hard work. The company has strived for years to gain this accreditation and according to Securus Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer, the company is incredibly proud of obtaining this accreditation. He stated that many times in the security technology industry, companies make wild claims about how well their technology works, only to be installed and come up falling short. He says he believes in the strength of the power of achieving such a high rating and a formal accreditation from the Better Business Bureau and all that it stands for.
Securus Technologies is emerging as a leader in the industry of prison security technology. The company has been around for just over a decade, but has already garnered the honor of becoming a leader in the field of prison security. The company has contracted with prisons around the country to provide things like its Wireless Containment Solution. This technology prevents contraband cell phones from being able to make phone calls or from connecting to the internet from inside a prison cell. This is especially dangerous when cell phones fall into the hands of prison inmates with lethal intent.
For example, a former security guard at a correctional institution was enjoying a quiet evening at home when his door was kicked in. An armed man entered his home. The former corrections officer, Robert Johnson, did everything in his power to stop the arm man from reaching his wife, who was sleeping in the back bedroom. The man shot Robert six times in the chest before leaving him for dead. Robert woke up on the bathroom floor and was able to dial emergency services and save his life.
It was found out that the man was contracted to kill Robert. He was called from a contraband cell phone by an inmate that was in prison. The inmate hired a man to kill Robert by placing a call right from his prison cell. Robert is now an employee of Securus Technologies, where he works to stop illegal cell phone use from inside prison walls. He is dedicated to make sure that no other people are victims to crimes being contracted out from inmates that are incarcerated. This is a serious problem that our prison system is facing.
