Drugs in our prison is something we try very hard to eradicate. Me and my fellow officers know first-hand what happens to an inmate who is under the influence of drugs while behind bars. Add into that mix an inmate taking the wrong drugs or too much of one, and they go from a violent to deadly offender. The most frustrating part of the situation is these inmates will often comment how easy it is for them to be able to get those drugs inside the jail compared to when they were out on the streets.
In an effort to put a stop to the flow of drugs through our facility, we work in different areas of the jail at the same time in order to tighten the noose on this issue. First, we do searches of the inmates and their guests in the visitor center. Next, we are always doing inspections of cells throughout the day. Lastly, we monitor inmate calls and listen for key conversations that could tip us off to potential problems.
When we first had Securus Technologies install their inmate call monitoring system, we didn’t think it would offer much in the way of revealing the location or whereabouts of drugs. Once we were taught how to use the LBS software, it became apparent that we had something that could help us to really take proactive measures to eliminate this problem once and for all. Securus Technologies has 2,600 of these same monitoring systems in prisons all over the country, and now we know why.
As soon as an inmate talks about how they can get drugs, sell drugs, or use drugs inside our jail, the alert feature lets us know so that we have the ability now to get ahead of the problem instead of always being in reaction mode.

When most kids struggle with their homework they usually have the support of a parent to help them out. When it comes to children with incarcerated parents this might not be the case. Close to 3 million children within the U.S. has a parent that is locked away behind bars. This is a very disturbing situation because a child is being deprived of a parental figure.
Securus is a technology company that provides inmate communications to people. This organization has been around for many years helping to incarcerated felons to keep in touch with their families. I have read about the work that Securus does for inmates. I can honestly say that they are doing a good job with helping inmates to thrive.
An inmate can use the Securus’s Video Visitation App to observe their son or daughter while they are doing their homework. They can watch them as they learn how to read or help guide them through a tough math problem. More importantly, they can see their child’s face light up because of their presence.
Securus knows that when an incarcerated felon has contact with his family that they will do better while behind bars. I know from personal experience that people really do need to have their loved ones in their corner when they are locked away.

Jail is not a great place to be and no one wants to be there. Kids with incarcerated parents should be able to have them around on some occasions to provide help when it is needed.
