As people come to realize that making money is not the only goal a person should have, companies are beginning to become more active in promoting certain ideologies and moral beliefs. These companies mix the good of the business world and the good of non-profits. They produce a beneficial product that touches lives and is also of great quality. Social Entrepreneurs usually run these companies.
Securus Technologies is a wonderful example of a social entrepreneurship. Securus Technologies is the leading provider in America for civil and criminal justice technologies, as well as, solutions for public safety. They take seriously the issue of inmate on inmate crime, and they created products that dramatically decrease this problem. This is because inmate on inmate hostilities is the most common cause of death in correctional facilities.
Securus Technologies lowers this abuse through various products. This first product is a system that allows Securus to locate contraband cell phones in a correctional facility. Once discovered, they can listen to previous calls or eavesdrop on new ones. They can also view text messages sent and received, even if they have been deleted from the physical phone. The reason Securus Technologies targets phones is because this is the most common what inmates plan to target other vulnerable inmates.
The second product that Securus created is the revolutionary Cell Defender. This technology utilizes radio waves already in place to pinpoint the exact location of a contraband cell phone. This helps since very few inmates hide the phone in their cells. Simply searching the inmate won’t cut it.
The third product that Securus used is a system called Wireless Containment Solutions, which blocks a phones capacity for connecting to Wi-Fi. This is crucial since inmates use Facebook Messenger to plan most of their crimes without the guards knowing.
