Securus Technologies gets full approval for rollout of Wireless Containment System

Securus Technologies is one of the largest providers of inmate communications services and prison security systems in the United States today. The company has been at the forefront of developing some of the most cutting-edge systems that help prison guards and administrators keep their institutions safe and secure. From its video visitation technology, which has proven to be a wildly popular way for inmates to stay in touch with loved ones, to its high-tech, artificial-intelligence-based call-monitoring systems, Securus is blazing new trails in prison tech.

 

Now, the company is taking on what may be its biggest challenge ever. Since the late 90s, prisons across the country have been flooded with contraband cellular devices. These phones and other devices allow prisoners to effectively circumvent the security protocols and systems that the prison has installed. This poses a serious security risk to the institution. But the real threat that contraband cellphones have created is through providing an efficient and reliable means of communications with the outside world for dangerous, powerful and often-violent gang leaders.

 

Throughout most of the country, prison gangs rule the nation’s penal institutions. These gangs now exist in a sort of uneasy symbiosis with the institutions where they are contained. In a highly charged environment, where racial tensions are often right at the boiling point, the gangs can actually assist prison guards by maintaining internal discipline on a level that would not be possible for the guards themselves. Although it is a somewhat open secret in the prison world, the gangs are able to keep their members and those who they control in check through intra-gang violence. This would not be possible for guards, who would quickly face lawsuits. For this reason, the presence of prison gangs actually makes things like open rec yards and out-of-cell time possible. If it were not for the gangs’ ability to self-police and maintain order, prisoners in most of the nation’s high-security facilities might quickly find themselves locked in their cells 24 hours a day.

 

But the benefits of these gangs come with a steep cost. They are made up of criminals and are highly organized, hierarchical and often have well-read, intelligent leadership with a ruthless bent. Furthermore, prison gangs tend to be run on a Mafia-like model. They tend to be focused on making money, highly professional and ready to mete out vicious assaults on anyone who crosses them, at the drop of a hat.

 

These gangs have used contraband cellphones to intimidate witnesses, assault law enforcement and even carry out assassinations of prison staff. But Securus Technologies is putting an end to that with its Wireless Containment System. The WCS is currently being deployed at many prisons throughout the United States, where it has been proven 100 percent effective in shutting down illegal cellular calls.

Victims of Arpaio Retaliate Against his Pardoning

In 2007, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin began what would result in a half decade long legal battle against Maricopa County. In 2013, Lacey and Larkin, business partners, were awarded $3.75 million.

The lawsuit was the result of Maricopa County’s Sheriff to silence the free press. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were publishing revealing information about Joe Arpaio – the sheriff. Arpaio obviously didn’t like the contents of the articles, which is understandable.

What isn’t understandable is how he decided to handle the situation. Arpaio sent his deputies in unmarked SUVs to arrest Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin; arresting someone for what is published in a newspaper is a first amendment right violation. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey and https://michael-lacey.com/press/

“We were a constant thorn in his side,” Jim Larkin admitted. “I think that’s why Michael and I were arrested.” The two journalists had been investigating Arpaio for years prior to their arrest.

Arpaio has never been one to abide by the supreme law of the land. Ever since he took office in 1992 he has attempted to silence and oppress everyone that got in his way. He was Sheriff of Maricopa County for two decades, but once word got out on a national platform that Arpaio was corrupt, he was voted out of office.

“It ends up with contempt of court because he ignored a judge’s instruction,” said Lacey. “As opposed to being held accountable for the people were killed, the people who were tortured, the prisoners who were abused.” Joe Arpaio’s history of mistreatment for prisoners is well known. Lacey believes Arpaio should be held accountable for the unjust treatment of prisoners being held in Arpaio’s jails.

Joe Arpaio was recently saved by President Donald Trump. Another illegal arrest he committed in 2007 resulted in criminal contempt of court charges against Arpaio. Arpaio was relieved when President Trump extended a pardon to him. Arpaio took the pardon, and now his victims are livid.

Michael Lacey attributes the pardoning to Trump’s dwindling pool of supporters. “Trump’s approval rating is down around 30 percent, and that 30 percent is going to like what he did,” Lacey said.

About Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey met in college where they collaborated on a school newspaper. The project was so successful that they no longer had a need of college; the journalists dropped out to join the newspaper industry.

It wasn’t long until Lacey and Larkin had purchase “Phoenix New Times,” the paper that they used to give Arpaio such a hard time.

Since the lawsuit, they have sold their paper in order to start a couple of new organizations.

The Frontera Fund is a charity that assist citizens and residents of Arizona. Lacey and Larkin, through their new charity, support a variety of causes, but they mostly relate to Hispanics.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin wouldn’t be journalists if they weren’t still in the newspaper industry. They have created Front Page Confidential to be a more direct approach to political activism. Front Page Confidential publishes content relating to politics and constitutional right violations.
