On Feb 6, 2017, Securus Technologies announced the activation of another implementation of its Wireless Containment Solution. Their intention is to prevent contraband cell phones and wireless devices in prison from reaching the commercial network. The technology not only prevents access to the commercial network but also provides data about the cellular phone in use, which is vital in helping investigators lay hands on the perpetrators. Richard “Rick” Smith, the chief executive officer and chairman of Securus Technologies said that they praise the states for ensuring the safety of people by preventing unauthorized communication.
He added that states are implementing the Wireless Containment Solutions and their teams are working to provide the best solutions to help correctional facilities reduce illegal contact between inmates and free people. Other providers tried many other ways to solve the problem, but they did not have the expertise and the technology to make it work. They managed to identify cell phone signals but then did not have a way of preventing communication. The Wireless Containment Solution from Securus Technologies prevents the calls from reaching the network and in the process helps keep safe family, friends, victims, witnesses, officers and even inmates themselves. Smith said that the features of the new technology could be altered to fit the policies of any correctional agency.
