Securus announces technology to identify illegal communications

Securus Technologies said it has released its newest software technology that identifies illegal communication between inmates, even if they are not located in the same correctional facility, or even in the same state.

Called “ICER”, the technology was envisioned and developed by JLG Technologies to stop the illegal and dangerous activity of inmates having secret conversations with other inmates. ICER uses ultra- high capacity processors, coupled with sophisticated and proprietary audio processing software, to identify illegal calling between inmates.

Securus, through its purchase of JLG Technologies last year and subsequent further investment in infrastructure and capacity, is now making ICER available to all of its customers without charge.

The full rollout of Securus´ latest investigative solution will help identify hundreds of thousands of illegal inmate communication events that would otherwise go undetected. Inmate telephone providers without access to ICER will not be able to identify and alert agencies to these calls and illegal inmate-to-inmate communication will continue to occur unnoticed.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and serving more than 2,600 public safety, law enforcement and corrections agencies and over 1,000,000 inmates across North America, Securus Technologies is committed to serve and connect by providing emergency response, incident management, public information, investigation, biometric analysis, communication, information management, inmate self-service, and monitoring products and services in order to make our world a safer place to live.
