When the inmates in my prison are able to get their hands on drugs, everyone behind these walls is in serious danger. We are not just talking about the other inmates, we are talking about officers, jail staff, and even all the visitors. To make sure that every person inside this jail is safe, we have to be taking proactive measures each day to ensure that the entire facility is safe. Me and my fellow officers have a number of things we do each day to combat drugs getting into the jail.
The first thing we do each day is random cell inspections. These cell inspections allow us to catch certain inmates off guard and take into possession any contraband we discover. We then have a huge police presence inside the visitor center to deter people from bringing drugs to the inmates. We have to check each person carefully, watch the interaction between the two, and even search inmates after the meeting to make sure nothing is getting back to the cells.
Securus Technologies is responsible for the inmate call monitoring system we have inside our facility, allowing us yet another resource for stopping drug use in the prison. The company has a single objective all thousand employees of that company are committed to, and we appreciate their efforts to making the world safer. Once we plug into the LBS software that we are hunting for drugs, the system goes to work.
Each day we are amazed how the inmates basically lead us right to the drugs. We have listened to calls where the inmates are instructing family how to get the drugs to the jail, where these inmates will hide the drugs inside the cell, and who is selling drugs in the yard. This resource is by far one of the most effective for eliminating drugs in our crowded jail.
