My job working inside the prison as a guard is extremely trying, there is not a minute that goes by where my life is not in some sort of danger. The reason my position has become so dangerous in recent years is due in part to overcrowding, drugs, and the increase in violent gang members now inside our facility. These gang members are younger and on the command of their leaders will risk getting extended jail time. A low-level gang member will risk years of freedom to honor his brothers.
This is a dangerous combination that puts guards right in the line of fire each day. If these younger inmates can get their hands on drugs, the situation quickly escalates from dangerous to deadly because they have little control of their actions at that point. To help get back a degree of control, we recently reached out to Securus Technologies to see if they were able to update our telephone monitoring system. We knew the company had this same system in over 2,600 jails around the country, and it was our hopes that the system would provide us an edge in these very tense situations.
Securus Technologies has a headquarters in Dallas, and all of the employees are committed to making the world safe. The CEO of the company, Rick Smith, says the company can help us limit violence by allowing the software to do the work while our officers can get back to manning the front lines.
Not even a few days after the system was installed, the LBS software alerted my team to one caller who was complaining to his brother about having to sell drugs for his gang so they could have the money. We took action quickly to stop the drug flow and reduce these issues.

I am part of a fugitive task force that has to get the worst of the worst off the streets before they put an entire community at risk of injury or worse. This suspect was armed, unpredictable, and didn’t have any family or friends in the area. He was relying on his instincts to stay off the radar, but we knew someone had to know something about where he was, where he was going, or what he had planned for getting away from authorities.
I knew the suspect had been in and out of the local jail a number of times, so I decided to try and get a few of his cellmates to talk. Even when you get these inmates one-on-one, they rarely speak because they know the rest of the prison population is watching and will quickly label them as rats if they say a word. Since we were already at the jail and knew someone knew something, we decided to talk to the officers on staff. They informed us that Securus Technologies had just installed an inmate communication system and it may shed some light on this troubling search of ours.
Securus Technologies CEO Richard Smith has 1,000 employees working for his Dallas-based company, and all are working tirelessly towards the objective of making this world that much safer for us all. Little did any of us realize the LBS software was going to help us in ways we could have never imagined.
These inmates listen to officers talking and they watch the news, so they knew who we were hunting and why we were at the jail. Despite not talking to us, they did talk over the phones, and even though they tried to disguise the conversation, we picked up chatter about the suspect staying with a former inmate until the heat died down just a little.
