As each portion of our lives become more and more closely linked with technology, the benefits of a high-tech society become ever more apparent. As the medical fields, social infrastructure, and even manufacturing lines are only improved by the involvement of technology, the next obvious question is what facet of life can best be improved by highly adaptive technology.
Answering that question with resounding force, Securus Technologies, a company that helps facilitate inmate communications in many prison facilities across the nation, took to their clients to find how their technologies have helped make the prison system safer and more effective for all those within the system.
Securus Technologies’ Clients Speak Volumes
In a very unprecedented form of transparency, Securus Technologies recently published a list of what their real clients are saying about their services. Different from the recent spate of “real customer” promotions utilized by car manufacturers, the comments from all of the clients were collected directly from the clients themselves. The comments which came in the form of hard written letters, e-mails, and other communication channels all expressed the same message throughout each, that Securus Technologies had not only made the duties of clients within the prison administration industry easier but safer.
Ringing throughout each comment was praise for the services, one comment even purported that Securus’ services had helped break up a corrupt official’s contraband ring using intercepted communications.
Technologies Role in Preventing Crime
Though we are still very far away from living in a world that mimics sci-fi movies, in the near future police officers will not be conducting raids based upon perceived criminal intentions like most dystopian novels, technology still has a very significant role to play in policing not only our streets but our prison systems as well.
