I think it is important that we put ourselves into the shoes of police officers. They do such an important job for society and we really need to help them in their efforts to keep everybody safer.
Just think for a moment how satisfying it would be to collect vital evidence against a criminal that committed a heinous crime. It must be sweeter than any gotcha moment in any movie or television show ever made.
This is why I am applauding Securus Technologies. It might seem funny that I am applauding a telephone company, but this is not just any telephone company. This wonderful company only does business with state-run prisons and jails in the United States. You’ve seen all the television shows. All of those telephones hanging on the wall right in a row are serviced by this telephone company.
Prisoners who make those telephone calls know they’re being recorded by Securus Technologies. Every single one of those telephone calls is recorded and stored by this telephone company. This allows law enforcement officers to listen back on everything a prisoner says to anybody on the outside. And there is a lot of critical information being run through those telephone calls.
Securus Technologies really steps it up with a software program that allows police officers to comb through all of this digital data to find particular phrasing. It also allows law enforcement officers to dig up any single phone call that any particular prisoner has been a part of. The program can even walk on to a recorded vocal signature to pull up any telephone call that particular person was a part of.
Imagine being able to bust somebody because of their own carelessness on the telephone? It would be an amazing feeling to put a criminal behind bars using their own voice against them.
