The murder of Kendarius Edwards Jr’s, a nine-month-old baby took the world by shock as this attempt of vengeance was completed by an incarcerated gang while they were behind impenetrable prison walls. Other such horrific incidents such as the attempted murder of Robert Johnson, were all orchestrated from within prison using a seemingly ordinary device that in reality turned out to be lethal when it fell in the wrong hands. Dozens of such cases have been reported for as long as we can recall; however, due to the joint efforts of Securus Technologies and Robert Johnson, our world might finally be free of crimes committed by incarcerated inmates who are in shackles.
Robert Johnson, a former corrections officer in South Carolina, is dedicated to using his own experience to keep civilians safe. He was attacked in the middle of the night within the walls of his home, where he was shot multiple times and had to undergo 23 painful surgeries while fighting for his life. Still carrying the wounds of these operations, he is determined to use the power of technology to improve public safety.
Between a span of 12 months, Securus Technologies has indeed proven that their Wireless Containment Systems are a plausible long-term solution. From July 2016 to July 2017, using the containment units that have been installed in eight prisons, over 1.7 million calls have been successfully barred from being completed. The number of successfully blocked illegal calls made using contraband mobiles phones is steadily increasing, which indicates, this useful technology should have been implemented from the very start.
Although Securus Technologies has spent well over $40 billion into the creation of the Wireless Containment Systems, this company is dedicated to its cause of helping you live in a wholesome way without continually being subdued by fear about inmates ordering hits from within the confines of prisons. These units are installed in 3 Florida based prisons along with a few others spread around the country; we hope that this number will soon increase.
Robert Johnson firmly believes that when standard methods to stop inmates from using cell phones from within prisons, are repeatedly failing, then the only way forward is to use technology and eradicate the problem from the root. Since these units can be installed in any prison and can block outgoing calls to unknown numbers as well as block any such incoming calls, we are leaning to believe that the facts stated by Robert Johnson are apt to this situation.
Additional facts that have made this technology interesting to numerous people including us are, calls made to 911, are allowed to complete while other calls are managed by Securus Technologies. Inmates in prisons that have installed these units think that they are latched on to their home network, while in reality, the calls are re-routed to Securus Technologies discreetly and promptly.
