The Purpose of Wireless Containment Solutions (WCS) with Robert Johnson

The correctional facilities are there to see that the inmates get a chance to reform and become a better version of themselves. The other purpose the jail facilities are purposed to do is to ensure that the public is safe from individuals who may harm them. The two objectives of the correctional facilities cannot be met if there are contraband cells and other illegal commodities in the facilities.

The use of contraband cells is the mother of all evils in the prisons. All the illegal commodities are ordered through the cells. There was a video circulated by Securus Technologies of a prisoner brandishing a knife. These incidences lead to murder cases in jail and inmates hurting each other. Securus Technologies is dedicated to seeing there are no such cases.

The FCC met to discuss the dangers of contraband cells in the facilities. Robert Johnson attended the meeting to give his testimony to show the damage the illegal cells can cause. Johnson is an ex-officer who is currently working as a paid consultant of Securus Technologies.

Robert Johnson is a survival of the ugly incidence of a setup of the contraband cells. It all started when he confiscated illegal things worth $50000, the inmates involved were obviously not pleased with his actions, and they resolved to kill him. One morning when he was preparing for work, he had some loud noises, and when he called out from the hallway, his attacker came, and the only thing he remembers from here is waking up in a hospital bed.

In the meeting, they were suggestions of having the mobile networks blocked completely in the correctional facilities. However, the federal law forbids blocking network completely in any area. Securus Wireless Containment Solutions (WCS) is the best solution to the problem.

This means that Securus Technologies has created a mobile network in the correctional facilities. However, the WCS only allows authorized numbers from the facilities. The WCS blocks all the other calls from reaching the other individuals, protecting the people in the free world. WCS also blocks any internet connections from the facilities. In the past years, the facility has managed to block more than 1.7 calls from inmates. The calls might have caused damage to innocent people.

Recently, a nine-month-old baby boy was shot in broad daylight in the arms of his mother. This was an order from the correctional facilities. The reason for the malicious act was that some inmates were not pleased with the way the uncle was behaving.

Robert Johnson says this is disturbing and needs to come to an end. Despite having undergone 23 surgeries and living with pain all his life, he is determined to see that there are no contraband cells in the jail facilities.


Securus Technologies Is Revolutionizing The Incarceration Environment

More than two million people in the United States are behind bars. Federal and state prisons across the country are not just jails that hold convicted criminals; they are war zones where rival ethnic groups and gangs battle for dominance and power. Rick Smith, the CEO and chairman of Securus Technology, and his executive team are constantly developing products and new services that help prison officials prevent crimes. Securus is a premier technology company that happens to have more enforcement and correction patents than any other prison service company. Securus has hundreds of patents in its extensive corrections portfolio, and those patents cover fraud detection, commissary services, inmate calling and monitoring services as well as other products and services. Rick Smith recently told Securus was instrumental in obtaining a search warrant to bring down a corrupt prison staff member. Securus got information about the corrupt prison official through a Securus phone system in that prison.



Rick Smith gets letters from correctional facilities all over the country, and those letters describe the contribution Securus makes to the prison system in the United States. A recent letter from a prison official explains the importance of Securus monitoring system in place at that particular prison. The letter credits Securus for uncovering a drug-selling ring, alcohol use, as well as, drug use in that prison. Another letter credits Securus investigation tools for stopping the flow of contraband material that plagues state and federal prisons. Those letters are just a small sample of the positive comments Smith receives weekly.



Mr. Smith and his team at Securus focus on the specialized needs of corrections community. More than 2,600 prisons in 45 states, Canada, and Mexico say Securus is number one when it comes to providing technical solutions and quick customer service. Securus operates from the main office in Dallas, Texas, but the company also has regional offices in metro Dallas and one office in Atlanta Georgia.




Securus Technologies Making Life Easier for Corrections Officers

As a corrections officer, I can tell you from personal experience that this is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. The inmates can not be caged 24 hours a day, so they must be free to interact with each other and the officers. On any given day, at any given time, the inmates hold a numbers advantage over the officers, and they know it. If the inmates were to simply attack, they would be able to take over the staff quickly.


For that reason and more, officers need to be on alert every second of every shift for any trouble. The inmates not only out number us, they are locked in jail 24 hours a day, they are constantly looking for cracks in the system, and exploit them when they can. Even when I work a 12 hour shift, the inmates know more about the day-to-day activities than I do.


Keeping myself and other officers safe is a daily challenge, and if word comes down from a high-ranking gang leader to take out an officer, the lower-level soldiers don’t blink an eye when following out those orders. Although we do have some intelligence on the inside, it is not enough to keep the inmates from attempting to hurt my team.


When Securus Technologies installed our new inmate communications system, it was a game-changer. When I was trained on the LBS software, what I discovered was chatter between inmates was more involved than we thought. We overheard orders coming in from outside the jail, going down the ranks to the soldiers, who would meet with visitors who smuggled in weapons right under our noses.


Thanks to the LBS software, we can intercept these calls and break the chain of communication before any of our officers at put at risk.
