Every family would love to keep in touch with their incarcerated loved ones. Not many Americans would refuse the chance to connect with their locked up friends and relatives via voice calls, text messages or Skype. Inmates need moral support, counseling, motivation and encouragement. However, different prisons and other holding facilities impose many sanctions on such communications, and they do it for legitimately good reasons. Securus Technologies, however, sort to remedy the situation by improving on technology to eliminate the criminal aspects of inmate communication to allow Americans to have safe and regulated conversations with their incarcerated loved ones as frequently as possible.
Why Prison Officials Restrict Inmate Correspondence with the Outside World
Most convicted criminals are dangerous in their deeds and intentions. Some wield immense power over criminals who are wanted and at large. Worse still, they inspire loyalty in easy-to-control members of the society who have no criminal records. Anytime they make unrestricted communications to the outside world, they coordinate dangerous and unlawful transactions like:
- Ordering hots on prison officials, members of the public and even fellow inmates
- Trafficking of drugs within and outside of prisons
- Mob violence
State, private and public prison officials struggle to maintain the integrity of their institutions, but they often fail miserably. Prisoners have often managed to sneak contraband communication devices despite the dedicated efforts of authorities to prevent that. Inmates use lies, intimidation and even sophisticated technology including drones to smuggle contraband phones inside prisons. Once inside, phones provide inmates the powerful weapon of communication which is used to conjure the services of their death merchants.
