The introduction of contraband into a correctional institution is major issue across the United States. Contraband introduced into a correctional facility includes mobile phones, drugs, and even weapons.
A Securus Technologies inmate telephone system can prove a useful tool in preventing the introduction of contraband into a correctional institution. In fact, the head of such an institution reported that a Securus Technologies telephone system assisted in obtaining a search warrant for a corrupt staff member of the facility.
When the search was conducted, it was discovered that the staff member was involved in introducing contraband into the facility. The staff member was arrested and the corrupt enterprise of introducing contraband into the institution was brought to an end.
Each year, a surprising number of correctional institution staff members are involved in criminal activity. This oftentimes includes smuggling drugs into a facility to be sold to inmates. This type of criminal activity makes a correctional facility significantly more dangerous.
Oftentimes, the only way of catching a corrupt staff member is by effectively and appropriately monitoring the inmate phone system. Thanks to Securus Technologies technology, this can be accomplished in a way that is both appropriately limited and yet highly effective. The system oftentimes identifies a criminal plan before it is put into action.
