Investigator 4.0 by Securus Technologies makes it possible to identify a criminal by his voice. Voices have a quality to them which is as unique as a fingerprint. Just like there are no two fingerprints alike, there are no two voices alike. The differences can be hard to determine, however; and that’s where technology comes in. The right kind of computational software can analyze a voice for similarities and identify said voice being used in disparate locations. Even criminals that try to hide their voices can be foiled by a computer that is looking for characteristics which can’t be consciously downplayed or ignored.
Securus Technologies provides communications solutions for inmates of over 2,600 correctional facilities. In total, Securus caters to some 3,450 public safety institutions, correctional facilities, and law enforcement agencies. Additionally, they deal with 1.2 million inmates on a regular basis. Those inmates often communicate with individuals who are not incarcerated. Despite such a ubiquitous prison system, organized crime in America often deals with the incarcerated. Sometimes, for example, the leader of a criminal organization will be incarcerated and operations from that criminal enterprise don’t cease. Why? They are being conducted from the inside. This can be done through a variety of legal visitations and telephone conversations. With Investigator 4.0 by Securus subsidiary JLG Technologies, it’s easier than ever to identify who may be coming or going as a visitor at a prison. Their voice can be matched against other criminal voices whose phone calls have been recorded. This makes it easier to arrest criminals involved in hidden activity, and curb the tide of criminal behavior that is conducted from within a given facility.
