Dallas-based Securus Technologies announced in early 2018 that they have completed an 18-month drone detection pilot program. The pilot program was deemed a success and the company will continue to fine-tune the technology that will assist the law enforcement and corrections communities.
Over the past several years corrections officials have seen a large increase of contraband being introduced to their facilities by pilotless drones. As criminals are becoming more technologically savvy, prison officials are fighting back with technology of their own. The drone detection technology uses the DAS (Digital Antenna Structure) already in place with the company’s Wireless Containment Solution.
Securus Technologies has been in the news in recent weeks for their outstanding customer service. In February of 2018 the company received three Stevie Awards at the annual awards show held in Las Vegas. The Stevie awards are the world’s top honors for sales and customer service. Securus operates a state-of-the-art call center that employees around 300 employees.
Securus Technologies is a holding company that wholly owns over 20 technology-based companies that provide services to corrections facilities and government agencies in North America. They serve over 3,500 agencies and over 1.2 million inmates. Services provided include incident management, parolee tracking, payment processing, biometric services, phone and email self-service, and others.
