Inmates are using drones to transport illegal items to correctional facilities. This has been noted over the years, and a company like Securus Technologies has decided to tackle this issue by inventing an innovative machine; the drone detector.
A few days ago, Securus Technologies announced the launch of a new project that will curb insecurities not only in correctional facilities but also in the community. According to the firm’s spokesman, the latest technology, called drone detector will locate all drones near correctional facilities and stop them from approaching or going through the facilities.
The spokesman added that just like any other technology invented for future use, this new technology is under observation. It requires time, financial resources and human input for it to become a final product that can be relied on.
Securus Technologies is working with prison’s officials to identify all the loopholes that may contribute to insecurities in correctional facilities. Additionally, the firm has noted that some of the items carried into these correctional facilities include drugs, contraband gadgets, and weapons. As well all know, these are dangerous items that can be used to plot a murder or commit suicide.
The Mechanism of Operating
Like the Wireless Containment System, the drone detector relies on the same mechanism that measures the distance between contraband items and correctional facilities. Notably, such technology brings safety to the whole community.
In addition to the drone detection project, Securus Technologies bagged three awards at the recent Stevie Awards. Well, the three stars were conferred to three groups in the company in the following order;
- Corporate Escalations Team – Gold for Customer Service Complaints Team for 2018
- Zelperita Jackson – Silver for Excellent Customer Service for 2018
- Video Visitation Team – Bronze for Front-Line Customer Care for 2018
All too often, the Stevie Awards are conferred to the sales and customer service teams across the world. For a company or an individual to receive such honor, they must have worked hard to earn this recognition. What is more, the award is open to every type of organization including private, public, other categories including business development, contact center as well as the sales department.
More than 2,500 organizations participated in these wards. Of course, they came in different sizes from virtually every industry. After a careful evaluation, the winners were selected. At the end of the event on that day, Mr. Michael Gallagher said that all winners must be proud of their accomplishments.
Securus Technologies is known for providing safety and security services to different departments including law enforcement, correctional facilities, and public sector. It has been noted that every two months, Securus Technologies comes up with an intention to serve the people by providing security in the community. Moreover, these inventions have more often than not, been successful.
