Working Alongside Securus Technologies to Fight the War on Drugs

Even inside our prison there is a war on drugs taking place today. As hard as me and my fellow officers try to fight in, those inmates are finding more and more ways to get the contraband into the prison. Many people are actually surprised when they discover that inmates have an easier time getting drugs in the jail then when they did on the outside, something we are aggressively working at to eliminate.


The inmates in our prison are behind those walls twenty-four hours each day, with nothing but time on their hands and always looking for weaknesses in the system to exploit. Even on my busiest weeks, I am there a fraction of the time the inmates are, so they see things in the jail and with each officer they use to their advantage. To help us fight the war on drugs, we rely on a strong police presence in the visitor center as well as daily cell inspections.


One resource we acquired this year was a new inmate phone call monitoring system that was installed by Securus Technologies. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, says his Dallas-based company with all thousand employees are working tirelessly to the objective of making the world safer for us all. We definitely put that system to the test to help locate drugs in the prison.


Once we knew how the LBS software worked, we began picking up some interesting conversations about drugs from our inmates. They would reference how to get the drugs into the visitor center, how they are hiding things inside the cells to avoid detection, and even when they are using the drugs. Each time we get a new alert, we send a team to quickly take care of that issue and have made some real progress already this year.
