Securus goes live with wireless containment solution deployment

Securus Technologies, a provider of technology-enabled solutions for public safety, law enforcement, investigations, corrections and government payment services announces that it is helping yet another corrections agency manage its contraband cell phone issues, the company said.

Recent data from across the country shows significant increases in crimes and violence coordinated from prisons and jails using contraband cellphones.

The Securus Wireless Containment Solution (WCS) is a private cellular network operated within a prison or jail that prevents communications from contraband cellphones. This controlled network denies all unauthorized cell phones access to any commercial mobile network, giving corrections agencies´ administration and security staff control over potential crimes and violence conducted by, and sometimes on, their inmates and others.

With this latest deployment, Securus´ Wireless Containment Solution is now operational at its 11th correctional facility in one of the most challenging of all sites, a jail in Louisiana.

Headquartered in Carrollton, Texas, and serving more than 3,500 public safety, law enforcement and corrections agencies and over 1,200,000 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, monitoring products and services, and government payment services in order to help our customers with solutions to their problems and to make our world a safer place to live for all of us.
