How Securus Technologies is Helping Officers Fight Crime

It felt like ages ago when I first got my start here working as a corrections officer for a prison in Texas. All those years ago, the jail was barely half full and me and my fellow officers had very little trouble maintaining order. Today is a much different story, our facility is overcrowded with inmates crammed in cells and the yard and dining hall filled to capacity. With everyone within such close range of each other, trouble can happen in a blink of an eye. In order to keep the facility safe for all, we have turned to the latest technological advances to combat crime.

 

Securus Technologies developed a piece of technology that has changed how officers conduct business in a busy jail. Instead of having to sit in a call center and listen on a dated call monitoring system as the inmates talk on the house phones, the system does the work for us. Securus Technologies created a monitoring system that is run by the LBS software, and can scan calls and pick out verbiage on things like drugs, weapons, gang related topics, or any contraband. Officers get the alert and take action swiftly.

 

To give you a better understanding while we feel so confident working with Securus Technologies, you only need to look at how productive this system has been. Not only it is helping officers maintain order in dangerous prisons, the system has already been placed in well over 2,525 facilities. Headquartered in Dallas, the CEO of the company says his employees work at the single objective of helping make the world safe.

 

The way things work now in our facility is if an inmate thinks they can talk to their family about them sneaking prescription drugs to our jail in the visitor center, we are going to be ahead of that transfer and then confiscate everything.

Rocketship Education Supplies What Students Want In The Way of Education

Rocketship Education is the talk of the times. It offers a fresh approach to the age-old quandary of educating our children so that they receive the quality and meaningful education to be able to do well in life.

Rocketship is a network of public charter schools that are placed in lower-income neighborhoods where there are no excellent schools and they make a huge difference. There is a unique partnership of teachers, students, parents and the community to forge ahead and develop student learners instead of student dropouts.

Parents see the difference right away because they are encouraged to participate in several meaningful ways including helping in the classroom, becoming advocates in the community, and by supporting their children with homework overseeing and help.

The uniqueness of Rocketship Education speaks to the fact that they can take an area that has low-performance schools and address the underlying problems. There are definite achievement gaps in many school systems in the country and Rocketship techniques turn these problems around.

A partnership of lasting quality is formed between the teachers, parents, students and the community to create an outcome that everyone wants, but no one has quite been able to achieve it until Rocketship Education comes to the stage. The secret is in the engagement of all the players. Until an outcome becomes a reality in the eyes of the partners the good results will never happen.

Rocketship uses a model that they call “Blended Learning.” Rather than stuff 25 to 40 students into a classroom 4 to 5 hours a day to listen to lectures and boring material, the students are placed into an atmosphere of success and challenge. And they embrace the opportunity because they can see the “why” of what they are doing.

They do have some traditional classroom time, but the learning comes from the small groups of 4 to 6 students, the digital learning with laptops and headsets, and the one-on-one tutorial mentorship sessions when they can ask questions and tackle any difficulties.

Students learn at their own pace and the results speak for themselves. Rocketship students graduate a full year ahead of their peers who attend other local public schools.
