If you want to discover perhaps the most dangerous job in the world, try putting on a police officer’s uniform and working inside and overcrowded prison packed with violent gang members who have little regard for authority. These inmates will jump at the chance to hurt an officer because it gets out some of their aggression and it gives them credibility with their fellow inmates.
For these reasons and more, we have to be working extra carefully to be sure that we are not sent to the emergency room or worse when we should be just putting in our hours at our job.
Last year the prison signed up with Securus Technologies to get their inmate telephone monitoring system installed, and today I can say it was one of the best decisions our company made. The team at Securus Technologies have already installed this same system in well over a thousand jails, and once the LBS software is implemented, officers have an invaluable resource at their disposal. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Rick Smith, continues to push his employees to making this world safer for each and every one of us.
To give you a good idea why me and my fellow officers have become so dependent on the call monitoring system, lets talk about what type of issues we avoiding this month alone. The LBS system alerted my team one day that an inmate was meeting his sister in the visitor center when he was hoping to receive a bag of heroin from her. We intercepted a call where one inmate had gotten an order from the soldiers on the street to hurt a rival gang member. We ever were able to discover the hiding places of weapons in the yard that could have been used on me or my fellow officers in the blink of an eye.
