Finally, A Solution To the Problem of Cell Phones In Prisons

More than eight thousand cell phones have been confiscated from inmates in the last year and a half. This shows us that it is not a small problem. Indeed, it is a very big problem. Just ask Robert Johnson, who was a correctional officer who was in charge of confiscating contraband when it was smuggled into the prison. After he confiscated a package that contained contraband that was worth thousands of dollars, an angry inmate used an illegal cell phone to orchestrate a hit on him. Someone knocked down his door early one morning and shot him in the chest six times at close range. Fortunately, he survived to live the tale and to start a crusade against inmates using cell phones.

 

Inmates are coming up with creative ways to smuggle in cell phones. For example, some are brought by friends who visit them and discreetly give them a phone. Others are provided by drones that drop them off in the prison yards.

 

Robert Johnson says that confiscating phones is not a real solution to the problem. He says that something much bigger must be done. He went to Washington to try to convince the FCC to make it easier for prison facilities to block calls that are made by inmates using illegal cell phones. Robert Johnson, who is now a consultant for Securus Technologies, says that the only real way to be one hundred percent sure that you are preventing inmates from using illegal cell phones is by actually using special technology to block the calls. Florida itself is using Securus Technologies in order to prevent calls from connecting to the mobile network when they are made by inmates.

 

Securus Technologies has a unique Wireless Containment Solution that does just that. A spokesperson explained that the system works like a cell phone tower. It basically is able to control which calls go in and out within a particular location. This way, when a call goes in, those that operate the prison can decide what to do with that call. If a phone is not authorized, then the phone call simply will not work. The call will be disconnected immediately, and the inmate will not be able to talk to anyone. In other words, the phone becomes a brick, unable to do anything besides call emergency services. A call cannot go into the network either without permission if it is calling an unauthorized phone.

 

Rick Smith said that he consistently hears from the prisons he services that inmates with cell phones pose a great danger, and he is happy to have a solution for them. Of course, cell phones used by correctional officers are authorized and can make calls as usual.

 

Securus Technologies Making Jail Safer for Everyone

When you talk about safety in the jail, you are not only talking about me and my fellow corrections officers, there are so many more people. Our job is to keep one another safe, but also each inmate, each contractor, every worker in the jail, as well as visitors to the facility. With so many people to keep safe, me and my team have to work tirelessly to ensure nothing gets inside the jail that could put anyone in harm’s way. The top of that list includes drugs and weapons of any kind.

 

To help keep our facility safe, we have a few routines we work through every day, sometimes more than once each day. Me and my fellow officers do surprise cell inspections around the clock, and we gather up any contraband that should not be in the possession of the inmates. We even have a huge presence in the visitor center because this is the place where things like weapons or drugs could exchange hands easily. Even with that effort, things still get into the hands of those inmates willing to take a risk.

 

When Securus Technologies installed a new inmate call monitoring system, we didn’t even realize at the time this was going to be perhaps the biggest and most effective resource in our efforts to make the jail safe. We were all trained to use the LBS software, and began to pick up on conversations right out of the gate. One morning we heard an inmate talking about needing his fix, and to bring it tomorrow, so we intercepted that family member easily. We hear chatter about where drugs are hiding in our jail, and sent teams to confiscate everything.

 

In only a few weeks, with the help of Securus Technologies, we’ve nearly stopped the flow of contraband from the outside to inmates.
