Securus Technologies recently announced a new software release that will change the manner in which inmate phone calls can be monitored. The software is JLG Technologies latest product called the Investigator Pro 4.0 searchable voice. What the technology does is allow prison investigators to take a sample of either the prisoner’s voice or the person on the other lines voice and search for other calls they have been on in the past. This software is a major breakthrough for the prison system as it will undoubtedly lead to crime prevention in the prison system.. By being able to search for a particular voice investigators will be able to look for patterns that will be instrumental in finding the gangs that are within the prison systems. In the past, investigators could only track phone calls by using the prisoners pin numbers or the phone numbers being called, the searchable voice feature brings a new level of sophistication to investigators. For example investigators will be to look at whether the person the prisoner is speaking to has event been incarcerated and are other prisoners also speaking with this particular person . There is no doubt that investigators will combine this tool with other technology to help improve the investigator process and cut down on criminal activity in the system.
For people who are familiar with Securus Technologies, the release of such a state-of-the-art tool will come as no surprise. For over 25 years, the Dallas based firm has been working to bring the leading technology to the United States prison system to help improve the work environment for prison workers as well as the quality of life for the prisoners. Other past technological advances include automating the system that prisoners can file grievances through and the introduction of electronic payment systems to the prisoners.
