Recently, Securus Technologies has released a brand new security feature for their existing prison inmate communications systems. This new technology allows the communication system to detect and block any signal from illegally used cell phones in the prison system. Contraband cell phones are one of the biggest problems that jails and prisons across America face today.
This new service, called “Wireless Containment Solution“ (WCS) is exclusive to the Securus operating system. WCS can detect illegal cell phone signals from inside the prison, block the signal from intercepting the prisons’ wireless network signal, and ping a signal back to the illegal cell phone capturing any unapproved communications made with the cell phone.
This process is being implemented in state correctional institutes across the nation with positive results. WCS is also helping investigators crack down on illegal activities inside and outside the prison system by collecting data from the illegal cell phone wireless signals and alerting investigators to patterns, people called or texted, and people of interest both inside and outside the penal system.
CEO of Securus Technologies, Rick Smith, stated that he applauded the prison systems across the nation for implementing this latest in Securus technology. Mr. Smith stated, “States are implementing Wireless Containment Solutions, because it works to keep the public safe. Our teams are aggressively deploying this best-in-class solution to help correctional facilities control and manage contraband cellular and wireless devices in prisons and jails across the United States.”
This brand new safety system is the latest in a long line of cutting edge technology the Securus currently has patented or is in the approval process. Securus takes safety and security seriously as they have the most patents in effect currently (140), and Securus is seeking approval of ninety more.
