As a corrections officer, I am well aware that every day I go to work in our jail could be my last. These inmates can be incredibly violent at times, and add into the mix drugs and the accessibility of weapons, and corrections officers are in the line of fire every minute we are at our job. The inmates have every minute of every day to plan, while officers working 8-hour shifts barely have an edge in stopping the violence.
There has been a rise in violence against officers lately, and there are a number of ways we are trying to combat the problem. In order for the inmates to hurt officers, they need to get their hands on weapons. These weapons are brought into the jail by way of visitors sneaking them through security and into the hands of the inmates. Once in the jail, the inmates are very creative at hiding the weapons in their cells or in the yard to use whenever they choose.
Another resource we have been dependent on in the past is monitoring the calls the inmates make on the prison phone system. In the past, those primitive system were unable to do anything for us other than listening to the calls. Today, we use Securus Technologies and their new updated inmate call system that allows us to maximize the power of the LBS software to decipher exactly what the inmates are talking about.
So in the past, the inmates could code their conversations in a way that would instruct someone on the outside to bring in a weapon without us knowing, but today we use Securus Technologies system to break that code and discover who is bringing the weapons to the jail. We have been cutting down on violent incidents ever since the system was installed.
Christmas, if you have a big family, can be quite exhausting. There may be a lot of running around to do. There are people that are going to be running from one location to the next. No one wants to go by a prison for the holidays though. This is just a dreadful holiday outing. I would much rather conduct a visit that I have through a video visitation app. It has become rather easy for me to make a couple of visits all in the same day by using the Securus video vistation software. I had not heard of this software before, but it has quickly became something that I learned about it.
Securus Technologies is a company that has certainly helped me see the benefits of using a company like this to improve communication. I wasn’t always in a place where I wanted to communicate with friends that I had on in the inside of the prison. I used to go to the prison and visit, but there was an incident that occurred during a visit that made me rethink visiting prisons altogether. I was at a point where I just didn’t think that I would want to go back to a prison, but Securus came along. I discovered that this was video visitation software that was just as good as being their in the physical.
I think that Securus has made it possible for many people that may have hangups about going to prison to still get that holiday visit in. What I have done over time is save my video visitations for holidays. That makes it seem even more special. I also use Securus because this company has other things like jail voice mail and 800 numbers that you can set up for collect calls. I used these services through the rest of the year, but I make sure that I schedule the video visitation during the Christmas holidays. That is where I know that I can bring a great amount of pleasure to my family that is locked away on the inside.
The prison system can be very cruel. People that are not accustomed to being on the inside can find themselves feeling very depressed during the holidays. That is why I make sure that I reach out and engage in a video visit during the holidays. That is the least that I can do.
In a press release dated June 7, 2016, GTL made inaccurate claims concerning Securus Technologies. Securus later pointed out the incorrect information and misleading statements made by the company. Both companies have been in the correction industry for some time now. They offer their services and products to inmates. Their services range from inmate communication to inmate monitoring services. GTL accused Securus of infringing on their patents, especially during video visitation. Strangely enough, GTL insisted that Securus has been bullying its competitors to settle disputes. It insisted that Securus Technologies settled disputes only on terms favorable to them.
Securus has come out in a press release and refute all those claims. The company presented their proof in a chart that showed the number of patents they had acquired. Securus Technologies publicly display the number of pending patents and license agreements the company had entered. From the graph and analysis, it was revealed that Securus had entered into a larger number of patents. Securus was the outright winner as it had a large number of patents.
Securus Technologies is a company that has its headquarters in Dallas Texas. The company went on to insist that they have never bullied any of its competitors into entering any licenses and agreements. The company declared that they have always used their patented technologies and have never infringed GTL’s patents.
Securus Technologies made an additional clarification of other inaccurate claims. The company stated that they would continue to defend themselves against future company attacks. I also think that GTL should focus more pursuing their patent litigation. Even though it could several years and require lots of money, it is better than spending their time and money trying to tarnish Securus’ name. The whole saga puts a question to GTL and their financial goals. The company should focus more on service delivery to its clients and stop trying to tarnish its competitor companies with false information.
Video visitation is becoming more popular in today’s world due to the changing needs in the society. Family members are brought together and can feel togetherness that they are deprived by the distance between them. The video visitation is clear representation of parents who would always want to be part of their children’s lives no matter the distance.
In the video visitation, we see a close daughter-father relationship and interaction that is not shaken by the distance between the two. The father helps his daughter do his homework interactively so as to ensure he is not left out in her education life. He also gives career advice and counseling as most parents should and he is hopeful that his daughter will follow his career path which is graphic design. The young girl gets encouragement and is also made aware of her talents during the video visitation Through Securus video visitation, a parent is capable of monitoring their children’s physical and mental growth closely.
