America’s prisons today face some of the most difficult challenges that they’ve ever seen in the history of the United States criminal justice system. Today’s prison environment is oftentimes ruled by highly organized gangs that closely resemble the military in both structure and capabilities.
Without the tools to fight organized gang activity, the corrections officers who are charged with keeping America’s penal institution safe wouldn’t stand a chance against the sophisticated and determined nature of today’s prison gangs.
Securus Technologies, one of the nation’s premier providers of inmate communication services and other prison technologies, has developed a suite of technologies that gives corrections officers and administrators the upper hand in the war to keep order in America’s prisons.
One of these technologies is JLG Investigator Pro, a suite of technologies that deploys state-of-the-art machine intelligence as well as data gathering and storage capabilities that have been developed by the department of defense and other major contractors for the U.S. government. Securus has adapted these capabilities for deployment within the U.S. prison system.
JLG Investigator Pro counts among its various features the ability to instantly identify whenever a banned or suspicious party enters into a conversation taking place within the prison’s confines. The technology is able to simultaneously monitor all communications placed by all devices within the prison at any one time. It can not only identify, through advanced biometric capabilities, any suspicious party or person of interest, it can also identify any suspicious patterns of communication, including the use of code words or references to possible illicit activity.
But the capabilities don’t stop there. JLG Investigator Pro is able to store all conversations, through automatic transcriptions, in the cloud. These conversations can then be retrieved at a later date by any authorized staff member, including lawyers and prosecutors, for whom such conversations may provide crucial evidence in ongoing criminal proceedings.
