Securus Technologies’ Standing Against Contraband Threats

It was recently reported that an ex-corrections officer, Robert Johnson, is working on disconnecting inmates’ mobile phones. For seven years, Johnson has been talking to everyone who would listen to his story which motivates his mission to refrain mobile phones from being in the hands of inmates. He stated how inmates with mobile phones is a danger to the community.

 

In 2010, Johnson worked for Lee Correctional Institution in South Carolina that’s located in South Carolina. Being in this field for 15 years, his main task was to confiscate contraband. He apparently performed his job so well that Sean Echols put a hit on Johnson. Echols, an ex-convict at the time, was arrested and convicted later on for the attempted murder of Johnson. It was found that Echols used a contraband mobile phone to contact the hitmen for the job of murdering Johnson. In another case, a baby was shot and killed while being in his mom’s arms from contracted hitmen. These hitmen killed the baby because of something the baby’s uncle did that they didn’t like.

 

As a result of these incidents, Johnson testified during a hearing in front of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in March 2017. He addressed the crucial need of controlling the contraband usage of mobile phones in prisons. This issue is considered a major safety hazard by many working in corrections. The FCC works on the issue since they regulate mobile phone providers’ airwaves. A federal law restricting the ability to completely block or jam signals is set in place.

 

Also, Johnson is now working for Securus Technologies as a paid consultant. This organization is now using a managed access cell phone detection system for stopping inmates’ mobile phone calls. A spokesperson from Securus stated that they are putting a network in which the phone is attached to the network so once a number is dialed they can choose what should be done with the number.

 

Established in 1986, Securus Technologies is based in Dallas, Texas which includes four regional offices in Dallas, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia. This company is one of the biggest detainee communications’ providers of detainee communications, government information management solutions, and parolee tracking.
