Part of the job working inside the local prison or me is keeping drugs out of our facility. If inmates can get their hands on drugs, then me and my fellow officers are in danger whenever we come in contact with them. My job is to keep the facility free of drugs, and that will benefit inmates, officers, prison staff, and anyone who comes to the jail to visit with the inmates. To maintain order, me and my fellow officers must perform a number of different tasks each day as a result.
The first thing we do every day is to inspect inmate cells when they are in the yard or eating in the cafeterias. Next, we will head over to the inmate visitor center and try to search each visitor thoroughly, then do the same for the inmates before and after contact with anyone. Our team will monitor the mail coming into the jail for drugs, as well as listening to call the inmates make.
When we had Securus Technologies update the old monitoring system, it was like night and day. Today, we can use the LBS software to monitor calls while my team is elsewhere trying to crack down on the flow of drugs. If the system identifies conversations about drugs, we get an alert and can take the appropriate action before things get out of hand.
We have come to trust Securus Technologies because they have been installing these systems in thousands of jails around the country, and employees of this Dallas-based company are dedicating themselves to making our world safer. If inmates are on the phone talking about getting drugs at the visitor center, hiding drugs in their cell or the yard, or using drugs inside the prison, we can take action quick and stop the trouble.
