Securus Technologies, a leading service provider for law enforcement, corrections and public safety just announced the launch of active pilot programs through drone detection technology. The program is in line with combating threats in prisons, jails, and other correctional facilities.
It has been noted that drones are aiding the delivery of illegal contraband gadgets to correctional facilities. Towards that end, corrections officials have come up with evidence of drones being used to transfer drugs, illegal communication gadgets, and weapons from the community into correctional facilities. Consequently, Securus Technologies has spent the last 18 months working on technology evaluations to find reliable partners committed to curbing the use of drones to invade correctional facilities.
Addressing the issue in a press statement, a spokesperson from Securus Technologies said that the drone detecting machine is emerging technology. That means that there are trials in place, set to identify its strengths and weaknesses. To achieve better results during these trials, Securus Technologies is closely working with technology experts and partners to evaluate the viability of the drone detecting machines.
Assessing the Drone Detection Machine
Like any other technology launched in the industry, the drone detection machines will become more advanced with time. That is why Securus Technologies is spending time, money and human input to come up with the drone detection machines. In addition to the resources, the company is working corrections officials to assess the performance of the machines. These officials have set aside time to monitor the progress of the machines.
How Drone Detection Works
Drone detection applies techniques that are similar to the Wireless Containment System. Like the latter, it uses an advanced digital antennae structure (DAS). Coupled with a committed investigative team that has assisted Securus Technologies to fine tune the systems, these technology has become more effective and efficient.
Securus Technologies has its main office in Carrolton, Texas. Since its establishment, it has served over 3,000 clients in more than 3,000 law enforcement, corrections agencies and public safety. Moreover, Securus Technologies commits to serve and connect inmates and their families by providing emergency response, public information and incident management services.
The 2018 Stevie Awards were recently held in Las Vegas. Securus Technologies was announced as a third-time winner of these awards. This was following its commitment to cater for its clients in ways that conventional organizations cannot match. The Stevie Awards honor top performers in different industries.
Upon launching the drone detection machines, Securus Technologies is confident that inmates will not access illegal contrabands;. As a result, the community will be safe from the harm that comes about due to the use of contrabands. It is also interesting to note that the drones have strong frequencies that demonstrate the level of innovation in trying to enhance safety.
