Securus Technologies is America’s foremost prison communications provider. Over the years, it has made a name for itself, providing some of the lowest rates seen in prisons across the country. This has allowed countless thousands of inmates to stay in contact with their families with frequencies that were, and decades past, never thought imaginable.
However, the company is also engaged in research, development and deployment of some of the most cutting-edge technologies involved in the prison industry today. Many of these technologies are proving themselves as invaluable tools in the fight against criminal activity that so often threatens the stability and safety of our nation’s jails and prisons.
One such technology is JLG Investigator Pro. This system borrows capabilities from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan and brings them to the nation’s jails and prisons, giving administrators and staff state-of-the-art tools for the prevention and fighting of crime.
One of the systems most powerful features is its biometric voice recognition system. Going far beyond anything you might find with typical voice recognition programs, such as Siri on Apple devices, JLG’s voice recognition system is capable of positively identifying all parties engaging in any communication on the prison phone system. Furthermore, all parties who are unknown have their voices stored for later biometric analysis. This allows officers to tag and identify those people who are thought to be at risk of perpetrating criminal activity within the prison. Officers have the option to ban parties or to flag certain participants in conversations. This can be accomplished completely automatically, freeing investigators to only concentrate on the most pressing cases.
Such state-of-the-art technology is helping prisons across the country maintain a safe environment for prisoners. It is also being used to convict outside parties who attempt to introduce contraband, interfere with prison operations and act in furtherance of criminal conspiracy with organized gangs inside prison.
