Securus Technologies, Enhancing Correctional Facility Safety with Technology

Securus Technologies, a leading company in correctional facility communications, has recently implemented technology to make everyone safer. Known as “wireless containment systems,” or WCS for short, the system disables contraband cell phones from making calls and texts from the facility. The device looks like a small cell phone tower, and during testing, yielded favorable results. Blocking nearly two million calls from being made, the system is working for the benefit of everyone.

 

One may wonder why this technology is necessary. When calls to correctional facilities are made, they are regularly monitored and recorded, by a company such as Securus. When contraband phones are used, it’s nearly impossible to catch what’s being said and done. This has led to a series of crimes, including the shooting of a former corrections officer and even a baby. Had the system been in effect, these crimes could have been prevented. The officer injured, whose name is Robert Johnson, has been on a mission ever since to push for legislation requiring this technology in all facilities.

 

Securus Technologies has made advancements in its technology in recent years to provide inmates with easier and cheaper access to communication. Calling, video visitation, email, and voicemail are just a few of the technologies Securus has put in place to assist the inmates and their families. The monitoring component has assisted in solving cases, aiding investigations and prosecuting matters which once seemed impossible. It also has been used to discipline facility employees who are behaving in an unethical manner, such as allowing contraband to enter the facilities.

 

Securus Technologies has been around for several decades under different names. Acquiring many companies over the last few years, they’ve made significant advances. The most noteworthy of these is JPay, which has always served as a company to wire money but has recently started in other technology. Providing inmates with tablets, they’re able to use educational software to better themselves while serving their sentence. As Securus grows throughout the years, it anticipates the acquisitions and advancements in progress will continue to benefit not just those in correctional facilities, but the general public and facility employees as well. It will be interesting to see what Securus Technologies has in store for the future.

Felipe Montoro Jens, Talks Development through PPPs

Public-Private Partnerships best known by the acronym PPP have become a fundamental development model in the Brazilian society. That is why nobody was surprised when Felipe Montoro Jens an expert in PPPs highlighted the stage at which the city of Rio de Janeiro development plans had reached. The mayor Marcello Crivella hopes the city will develop up to twenty thousand new places in day care centers and forty thousand new places in pre-school centers by 2020. The planned developments will be accomplished through the PPP model and such plans are in the feasibility stage as was highlighted by Felipe Montoro Jens.

The model itself is not new as Felipe Montoro Jens observed, it had been used by the mining capital of Belo Horizonte in 2012. In the program schools were built under the PPP model and Rio de Janeiro’s mayor Mr. Crivella had indicated in his campaign manifesto that he will go ahead and use the model in implementing various development projects more so in the education sector.

In the planned development, Felipe Montoro Jens explained that one of the largest private sector development Institution IFC also a member of the World Bank Group hired for R $2.3 million will be responsible for a number of issues in the implementation of the project. The IFC will be providing all consulting services for project modelling in this project and will also be the lead consultant undertaking feasibility studies of public lighting project that will also be implemented under the PPP model of development.

Doe Deere Continues to Expand Lime Crime Empire

Lime Crime cosmetics company is growing in popularity for a number of reasons. The company’s founder, Doe Deere, is known for her interesting approach to beauty, color and individuality, and she was especially innovative when it came to launching the company in China.

Lime Crime’s global general manager Kim Walls, discussed the China launch at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Shop.org Conference, which was held in Los Angeles. Walls says that she knew from previous professional experience that the company wouldn’t be able to sell their products using the methods that were familiar to her. One of the biggest issues that Lime Crime faced is that cosmetics companies are required to test their products on animals in order to sell wholesale goods. Lime Crime, however, is a vegan company, and its cruelty-free stance is part of the reason the company has done so well in the United States. The only way to avoid this regulation is if all Lime Crime cosmetic products are shipped from the U.S.

However, shipping to customers in China from the United States could mean that Lime Crime will run into some complicated logistics in terms of shipping transportation. Duties and taxes will also be a significant factor, and Lime Crime will also have to figure out the best way to deal with possible customer returns while keeping the language barrier in mind.

Walls also shared that because of shipping issues, LimeCrime has found that a number of companies were making counterfeit forms of Lime Crime cosmetics, particularly the lip topper product. The item was sold throughout a number of Chinese marketplaces in the previous year. As a solution, Lime Crime forged a partnership with Revolve, an eCommerce company based in L.A. with a fashion and beauty emphasis. Walls says that the partnership was a wise one, since Revolve was servicing clients that were similar to Lime Crime.

Lime Crime recently constructed a “seed audience” during the China launch and also encouraged potential customers to visit the Revolve website. Walls stated that making Lime Crime well known in China was a team effort between Revolve and Lime Crime, and that the partnership was necessary to let consumers know that they were getting authentic Lime Crime products.
