Securus Technologies has offices that span from coast-to-coast in the United States of America. The three most prestigious offices are located in Texas and Georgia. For the past 30 years they have been the leading provider in United States of America for technological safety products. These products have been successfully used by law enforcement, public safety officers, correctional facility officers, as well as private investigators. Securus Technologies boasts how they get to be involved in protecting 1000 prisons and their 1.2 million prisoners contained inside.
Recently, this technological company has begun facing a problem they never thought would come across their desk. Criminals on the outside have been using technological drones to deliver illegal items to their friends on the inside. The drone simply flies over the walls of prisons with a box containing contraband items. The boxes drop off at a location that the inmate will then visit and take the items inside. These items can be very dangerous to correctional officers, other inmates, and even people on the outside.
These drones have been delivering cell phones, drugs, and weapons. These illegal cell phones are used to plot crimes on the outside. The drugs are then used to gain power on the inside. And of course, the weapons are used to harm other inmates.
Securus Technologies has worked for over a year and a half finding ways that they can stop these drones from breaching the prison walls. They already have a product in place called Wireless Containment Solutions. This product is meant to tap into a cell phone signature and thus listen in on calls and transfer and drop them as the operator wishes. They believe they can use the same technology to lock on to the unique signature that belongs to drones and use that to disrupt its ability to fly. As a drone comes in it is detected by Wireless Containment Solutions. A laser similar to an EMP is then shot at the drone which causes it to fall to the ground. From here, officers can collect the contraband items and hopefully discover which inmate they were going to.
Because they have been working so hard, Securus Technologies has recently received three prestigious awards. These awards are known as the Stevie Awards and are highly sought after by companies in the customer service sector. Stevie Awards receives over 2500 nominations a year but only a dozen or so are able to receive the awards. Not only did Securus Technologies receive three awards from the Stevie awards but they were able to take home the gold the silver and the bronze in the areas of customer service as well as innovation. This proves they are number one.
