Prison inmates are finding newer and more improved ways to get contraband items smuggled into the prison. Apart from cell phones and drugs, inmates sometimes need weapons to allow them to have control over other inmates inside the prison. In the same way that large retailers are looking to deliver goods to their customers, inmates want to use the same drones to have illegal materials provided in prison.
Drones in prisons have become a global phenomenon, and more US prisons are seeing an increase in the number of drones flying over their premises. While some are caught, many bypass the security with ease as there is no security in place for the same. Using the drones is beneficial for the inmates as they do not have to bribe the guards or take the risk of having their friends and family members deliver the illegal materials to them. All they need to do is pay an operator with a drone to carry the package inside the prison. Thus, there is a growing need for drone detection systems so that these drones can be stopped from infiltrating the correctional facilities.
Securus Technologies is a company that has emphasized innovation and technology from the very beginning. The services portfolio of the company is also vast, and it continues to expand with time. Recently, the company introduced two new highly efficient and much-needed services for the correctional facilities, namely wireless containment system and drone detection technology. Both this technology would be helpful in keeping the correctional facilities, safe and secure. It is essential that the correctional facilities used advanced technology to keep the crime rate low as the criminals are using new techniques to break the law, where the manual intervention by the officers is just not enough at times.
Securus Technologies has for years been developing new and innovative technologies for the corrections space, and the drone detection is the latest technology to make it to their portfolio. It would eliminate the use of drones in transporting the contraband items into the prisons for the use by the inmates. The inmates and their friends outside use the drones to send and receive the contraband items, which is completely illegal.
Even though most of the times, these drones are being caught, it also misses the eye of the correctional agencies at times. As these drones are also used to transport weapons and drugs, even one missed drone can cost a life. It is why the drone detection technology by Securus Technologies is highly essential. The company has been in the news for its new range of technologies that it has been introducing as well as for winning three Gold Stevie Awards for its customer’s services recently.
