Prisons today are safer today than they were ever before. In the past, it was easy for the inmates to get contraband and to make calls outside to other criminals and plan their moves. But, new technologies are making it impossible. The Wireless Containment System introduced by Securus Technologies helps prevent the use of cell phones inside the prison. While many can say that it is the right of the inmates to call their loved ones, but the new system is just used to prevent making illegal calls. The system allows the correctional officers and officers to enable specific calls and all other calls are blocked or disconnected. Using the system, a local cellular network is created for the prison using which all incoming and outgoing calls need to be approved. The inmates can still use the landlines inside the prison to make calls to their family members and do not interfere with their ability to stay in touch with their loved ones.
The illegal use of contraband has taken the lives of many officers and their family members. Among the many of them, the story of Robert Johnson stands out. He was a member of the SERT team in prison and was responsible for the confiscation of contraband inside the prison where he worked. His team once confiscated $50,000 worth of drug package even before it could reach its recipient inside the prison. The inmate behind the illegal drug usage was enraged and decided to take action against him so that other guards and officers would be afraid of him. He used an illegal phone and hired someone to kill Robert. He was shot six times in the chest and stomach in his house before he was about to leave for work. But, he lived to tell the tale and currently is an employee of Securus Technologies. After going through 24 surgeries, Robert aims to work with the company to help find better solutions for the contraband problems in prisons.
Securus Technologies cares about the lives of the correctional officers and their loved ones. For this, it aims to make the prisons secure. The company’s Wireless Containment System has helped save thousands of lives over the past years.

Manu gang leaders have used contraband cell phones to contact their members and peddle drugs or get rivals killed. Many have also used to make breakout attempts and to kidnap officers. But, Securus Technologies have made it difficult to carry out their heinous acts from inside the prison by installing the most advanced Wireless Containment System in prisons.
