Since Securus began to implement its video visitation technology over a decade ago, there have been a few misconceptions about the nature of its design. These misconceptions have been held by inmates but they have also seeped their way into the minds of prisoner’s rights groups and other assorted watchdogs. One of the main misconceptions is that Securus is providing nothing more than a knockoff version of Skype. Therefore, the calls should be free for inmates or so cheap that anyone can spend unlimited time on the system.
The problems with these lines of reasoning are too numerous to completely expose. But the first issue can be immediately addressed. Far from a Skype imitation, Securus video visitation is a full-featured, secure communications platform that relies of technology developed for use in war zones. This is an incredibly capable technology that allows prisons to operate in a safer, more efficient way than ever before.
Stopping criminal activity at the source
One of the largest problems U.S. prisons face is the threat of ongoing organized crime within their walls. Almost all major prisons in the U.S. are infested with gangs. Many of these gangs are extremely powerful and are not limited to intramural activity. Some of them, such as the Mexican Mafia and Black Guerilla Family, direct extensive criminal networks on the outside. These groups pose a serious threat not just to the facilities themselves, but to society as a whole.
Securus offers products such as real-time, automated monitoring that allow any unauthorized party to be identified within milliseconds on any of its phone systems. Officers are then prompted and can listen-in to the call. Securus also has the capability to listen for key words. This can aid in active investigations as well as preventing new crimes from taking place.
