One of the tremendous benefits of modern VoIP-based communications technology in prisons is the ability of staff and officers to completely monitor all communications taking place on prison communications equipment. Securus Technologies has been developing a number of highly sophisticated technologies that allow for prison staff to keep tabs on all communications taking place in their institutions.
One such technology is JLG Investigator Pro, a suite of monitoring, artificial intelligence and storage and retrieval systems that allow staff to keep an unprecedented level of control over all communication within the prison system. This technology uses advanced artificial intelligence to sift through all communications, only bringing to the attention of officers communications with a high degree of suspicion for criminal activity. The system is capable of not only recognizing the voices of all parties, but it is also capable of automatically restricting banned parties from taking part in communications any device in the prison. This has been successful in dramatically reducing the incidence of criminal activity within the prison.
One of the most serious problems to prison safety and security is the operation of criminal gangs. These gangs are sophisticated and disciplined, with military-like hierarchies and command structures that allow for highly efficient operations to be carried out. But these gangs cannot operate without easy access to communications. With JLG Investigator Pro, these gangs have found it almost impossible to continue to use prison communications devices in furtherance of ongoing criminal conspiracies.
JLG Investigator Pro has also enabled staff to dramatically reduce their workload, only bringing to the attention of staff the most serious flagged conversations. This automated monitoring of all prison communications enables staff to spend more time doing what they do best, guarding prisoners.
It is through technologies like JLG Investigator Pro that Securus is bringing America’s prisons into the 21st century. Securus is making prison a safer and better place for both prisoners and guards alike.
