Working with Securus Technologies for Finding Fugitives

One of the most frustrating parts of being on the fugitive task force is not being able to collect information on a dangerous suspect and get them back behind bars. In most cases, we have informants or family members who provide us information that leads to the eventual capture of these suspects. In this case, we were dealing with a person who was flying under the radar and had no family in the region tat could give us any leads.


The first thing we do in these type cases is create a profile and get it to the news organizations as fast as possible. The suspect was still committing crimes, and each day they were getting more violent. We had to stop this suspect before someone was killed. We decided to visit the local jail to see if any of the inmates could offer up that one key piece of information that would break the case wide open.


Securus Technologies was responsible for updating the local prison with their inmate call monitoring system. While we knew the inmates would not talk to us directly, our presence in the jail got them talking on the telephones. The amazing part of the Securus Technologies call system is that it allows officers to be in other places while the LBS software is scanning for certain verbiage. It wasn’t long after we started our search that the call system got several hits.


It appears that one inmate who was only there a week was blaming our suspect for his arrest. There is no honor among thieves, and this inmate went on to say that his turf was being taken over by our suspect, and he called authorities and get him arrested. Hours after monitoring the calls, we go the information we needed and found our suspect that weekend hiding in a homeless shelter.

I am one of the high ranking law enforcement officials myself and have used the Investigation PRO service on many occasions. It helps me to not only keep myself safe but also ensure that the criminals are not able to be successful with their mischievous acts. It is a very effective crime prevention service.
