When me and my fellow fugitive hunters are assigned a case, we do not give up until the suspect is in custody. It doesn’t matter where the suspect tries to hide, me and my task force are like bloodhounds, and we will never stop hunting regardless the circumstances. This month we were given a case of a fugitive who was holding up grocery stores at gunpoint and disappearing like the wind. The trouble was, he was hitting the same stores time and time again.
Just when we thought things had calmed down, the suspect would show up, rob the same supermarkets, then disappear with several thousand dollars. The frustrating part for my team was we knew this was being done as a message to my team that we were not capable of bringing the suspect down. Unfortunately for the suspect, it only fueled the fire that we get him into custody even sooner.
When I got word that the suspect had friends in jail, we headed over to see if they would talk. None were happy to see us, and none would even say a word to use. Fortunately for my team, these inmates love to talk on the phone and now they had something to whine about. One of the friends made a call out of the state to a friend not on his regular call logs. Securus Technologies installed the call monitoring system, and it was key in picking up that chatter about our suspect.
What we were eventually alerted to was a location where the suspect was staying with a friend of this inmate. He would come to Georgia, rob the Winn Dixie, slip back to Tennessee, and blow the money in a month. Once we had the location, it was easy pulling him out of bed one morning while he was sound asleep.
Securus Technologies has made a name for itself in the prison communications, civil, criminal and public safety technology over the years by providing some of the most cutting-edge techniques in the field. The commitment and dedication of the company in its field were identified and recognized in 2017 by Stevie Awards, one of the global awards presentations in the corporate sector.
Securus Technologies won the Gold award for the best customer service training team, which has helped the company and its team get excited. As per the statement was given by the vice president of Securus Technologies, Danny De Hoyos, the company is humbled by the award and has boosted the morale of the business and its members to stay ahead in the field and continue to provide valuable services to its clients.

It is one of the most vital aspects of incarceration experience that the company addresses with the help of innovation. The fact that the Securus Technologies won the award by beating more than 2,300 other companies to win in the best customer service training segment is remarkable.
Having used the services offered by Securus Technologies during my jail time, I can say that they actually deserve it. The products and services of the company have helped not only me but continue to serve many other inmates in a way that is life-changing. It alleviates stress from their lives to a great extent and helps them stay in touch with their friends and family, which is one of the key factors why most inmates undergo a tremendous psychological trauma.
The Better Business Bureau serves a good purpose in our community. The independent organization monitors companies for their treatment of customers and reports any mistreatment to their website. You can even get a lot done if you’re a dissatisfied customer threatening to call the BBB.
But the service is usually used by companies that are trying to attract customers. Companies like Securus do not need to try to attract customers because they only service prison and jail facilities. They get contracts that make them the only telephone company to service those prisons and jails. Their customers are behind bars and are forced to use the service. They’ve got tons of leverage and could use that to make millions of dollars in profit.
Instead, the company’s steadfast commitment to stellar customer service drives them to a higher level. They seem to charge fair rates even though there customers are literally locked into a contract with them. And they do not want anyone dissatisfied with their services.
They’ve invested in a massive customer service call center which is capable of processing more than 2.5 million calls per month. Well-trained representatives remedy concerns for over 1.2 million prisoners. The call center usually picks up the phone right away with an average of 11-second response. Virtually all concerns are remedied during the first call with a 99.9% success rate.
And if that wasn’t good enough, Securus has gone out of its way to get accredited by the BBB. The BBB only accredits companies that achieve excellence in eight different categories. These categories include integrity, a commitment to prisoner privacy, transparency, honesty in advertising, trustworthiness, a history of honoring promises, responsiveness and telling the truth. It is a commitment to excellence like this that will see the company rise to the top of its industry.
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.
