What are the largest problems that prisons in the United States have long faced is the threat of organized gang activity. Criminal gangs on the inside of prisons don’t stop carrying out criminal activity just because they’re locked up. In fact, prison can oftentimes become a place to meet and recruit new criminals into the organization. This poses an ongoing threat to the security and orderly operation of prisons, in every region of the country.
But one of the choke points in prison gangs’ ability to carry out their illicit activities is communications. For decades, there was very little that prison staff could do to cut back on the communication abilities of those inside prisons who were determined to carry out criminal enterprise. Over the last 10 years, however, that is beginning to change in a major way.
Securus Technologies, one of the leading providers of inmates communication services and prison security solutions, has developed a suite of software systems that allow corrections officers to efficiently address threats that they may facing from gangs that operate within their institutions.
One of the ways in which Securus is getting the right tools to combat gang activity into the hands of corrections officers is through its line of products known as JLG Investigator Pro. JLG Investigator Pro is a suite of software solutions that allows corrections officers to efficiently and securely investigate criminal activity that is taking place within the institution and over the facility’s communications devices.
Using advanced biometric capabilities, as well as voice recognition capability that has been developed for use by the military, JLG Investigator Pro is able to identify any suspicious or banned parties, immediately alerted corrections officers covertly to the threat that may be presenting itself. The system is also capable of recognizing anomalous speech patterns and code words, through the use of highly advanced artificial intelligence.
