Keeping Fugitives Behind Bars Using Securus Technologies

Whenever an inmate escapes a prison, whether maximum security or not, my team of fugitive hunters must create a perimeter and get them back into custody fast. Regardless the reason the inmate was arrested, out on the street they behave like wild animals because they desperately need to find shelter, food, weapons, transportation, and even drugs. Once drugs and weapons are mixed, every person in the community is in danger.


This particular inmate was in fact dangerous without the need for drugs, and if he was to find a weapon, any person trying to take away his freedom was a sitting duck. We had very little in the way of leads because this inmate did not have family or friends in this town, so we knew he would be desperate and taking advantage of anything that presenting itself to him. The only thing we had going for us was he did have friends still in the jail that were going to help us regardless if they cooperated or not.


Securus Technologies is responsible for installing our inmate call monitoring system, and it has been key at helping officers to locate contraband in the jail, keep the peace in jail, and even discover who is using drugs. I decided to see if any of my suspect’s friends were talking on the phone about his escape, and we struck gold right out of the gate. Appears that this was supposed to be a two-man escape, and the one suspect we had left his buddy high and dry when they reached to point of no return.


Listening to this inmate complain on the phone revealed a plan they both had about meeting a friend at the edge of the city, then getting driven to the border. We sent a team to the location and waiting for our suspect to walk right into our trap.

Securus Technologies Receives Major Accreditation
