This latest news from Securus Technologies could be a game changer, really. Their latest product and service, (appropriately called the “Investigator), means an extra tool for those dedicated to protect and serve. It is another layer of safety for communities everywhere. Funny thing is, Securus would just consider this another day and another step in their business of serving public safety departments, law enforcement agencies and corrections facilities.
The “Investigator“, as it is being called, is a tool using biometric technology, to not only recognize and analyze voices, but will also locate those phone calls where that particular voice is heard and recognized. Certainly this idea has been imagined before; perhaps avid movie fans pictured the CIA or James Bond’s Intel team tracking a dangerous individual, connecting the suspect’s voice to that known terrorist. This time, it is reality.
This new tool has far reaching implications for everyone. Corrections facilities can better ensure safety and detect threats earlier. Law enforcement and public safety agencies can thwart or catch crimes before they happen, as they are being planned. Of course the safety and security of everyone is improved as criminals and their plans and associates can be uncovered and stopped.
The Texas based Securus is no stranger to delivering products and services to those in arenas of civil and criminal justice. Answering questions and finding solutions to make life better, safer and using technology to do it, Securus serves over 3400 agencies. Within the corrections facilities served are more than 1 million inmates and their families who utilize the communications platforms provided by Securus.
PR Newswire released this latest announcement, and provides more details about the Investigator Pro. So what’s next for Securus? Well at the rate at which this technology solutions provider is churning out newer and better tools and answers, give it a week or two and we will probably find out. Just kidding – maybe.
