The Power of Securus Technologies to Protect Law Enforcement

I work in a local jail and our number one priority is to maintain safety between officers. Inside a jail, the inmates have the advantages because they outnumber us and they are there 24 hours a day planning and working the system to their advantage. If we were to let our guard down for one minute, the inmates would be able to put our lives at risk in the blink of an eye. With so many inmates serving life sentences, the idea of killing an officer does not even cause them concern.

 

To combat the assaults on officers, we try to keep rival gangs separate and we always work in numbers so that these inmates can not take us by force. To help us to protect one another, we are always monitoring the correspondence between inmates for suspicious activity. The gangs have their own form of communication, so it can be very difficult to pick up on these conversations even if we are listening closely to the inmates on the phone.

 

Recently we had Securus Technologies install a new inmate communication system that was going to improve our ability to pick up on those conversations that mentioned any violence. Once I was trained on the LBS software, I could suddenly identify instances where the inmates were talking about how the word came down from the top that a new recruit needed to be taught a lesson. The reason we have to interceded quickly is because we can get hurt during the attempts to break up these fights.

 

The team at Securus Technologies has been instrumental in getting us up to speed with the new system, and we have been able to stop a number of assaults before they took place. Our entire crew of officers is now educating other police forces on the power of this system.

 

Hospital Copa Star Using Cutting Edge Technology To Change The Face Of Healthcare

Construction on the luxury, state of the art Hospital Copa Star began in 2013 and ended with the facility’s inauguration in October 2016. The hospital is located towards the south of Rio de Janeiro, along Figueiredo de Magalhaes street in the city’s Copacabana area. The new facility was developed with the goal of providing exclusive, personalized care to Rio’s residents.

Hospital Copa Star was developed and is operated by Rede D’Or, one of Brazil’s largest independent hospital operators. The facility represents an R$ 400 million investment, aimed at making healthcare more accessible to residents in the surrounding areas. It provides highly qualified and specialized care that patients previously needed to travel to places as far as Sao Paulo to access.

The hospital design implements architectural elements making it as luxurious as a five-star hotel, a concept Rede D’Or regularly implements in all its facilities. It has approximately 21,000 square meters of space spread over seven floors. The facility is equipped with advanced medical equipment. This includes hybrid rooms, intelligent operating theaters, integrated MRI equipment in neurosurgery theaters, and robotic medicine.

However, cutting-edge technology is not solely responsible for curing sick people. The hospital has also integrated contemporary and internationally approved flows and processes, designed with a focus on the patients and their families.

Further, Hospital Copa Star utilizes the Smart Hospital technology, which gives patients a heretofore unheard of degree of autonomy. Patients admitted to the facility can communicate with their doctors or nurses through the iPads provided to them. This level of technological innovation extends to the automation of bed features, with doctors and interns being able to access examination and patient records change a room’s lighting, and open or close curtains.

The facility’s intake area and corridors have also been specially designed to be calming and welcoming, utilizing on an internal atomization system and artwork by prolific Japanese artist, Yutaka Toyota.

The Hospital Copa Star has coupled innovative architectural and technological design with a highly trained, specialized and prolific team of healthcare professionals. The facility’s staff consists of 550 people, 113 of whom are doctors. Prior to its opening, the staff went through various training modules and simulations to prepare for every conceivable emergency situation. Visit their profile page on Facebook.Com

The facility has been accredited by the National Agency for Supplementary Health, ANS. Based on licensing, the hospital’s rate of readmission, and safety of the patient, this means that Hotel Copa Star meets the required criteria of quality in healthcare provision.

Rede D’Or has also acquired the third floor of the nearby Shopping Antiquaries in Rua Siqueira Campos, where administrative duties such as billing, maintenance, supply, laundry and clinical engineering are located. Rede D’Or has already set plans in motion to expand this concept to other major cities and towns in Brazil. The process to develop new facilities has already begun in Brasilia and Sao Paulo.

Squaw Valley Continues Water Testing

One of the largest ski resorts, host to the 1960 winter Olympics, Squaw Valley knows the importance of safety. On November 8, testing of water systems on the upper mountain indicated the presence of E. coli bacteria in the four wells that are the source of water for systems at High Camp and Gold Coast. While area residents were not affected, restaurants and other facilities on the upper mountain were shut down. Squaw Valley acted quickly, notifying authorities with Placer County Environmental Health and the Squaw Valley Public Service District and taking immediate steps to resolve the issue.

 

The source of the contamination appears to have been an unusually heavy October rain fall (9.5 inches in less than 72 hours). Recent upgrades to the affected water system, completed over the summer, in combination with the excessive precipitation are believed to have made the system vulnerable to contaminants. Routine testing of the water after the rains showed low levels of E. coli and other coliform bacteria. Fortunately, no health issues have been reported. Water usage from the contaminated systems was halted before the water reached the public. Squaw Valley’s other water systems and the area’s residential systems remained unaffected, and free bottled water was provided for skiers at High Camp and Gold Coast.

 

Continued testing along with regular treatments has reduced bacterial levels in three of the four wells. The resort has indicated a commitment to health and safety by maintaining a ban on water usage until systems can be declared 100% safe for potable water usage. Additional measures will be taken as needed and full service to the upper mountain will be restored as soon as testing confirms normal safety levels. In the meantime, ski lifts are operational and skiing continues at the beautiful Squaw Valley Alpine Meadow Ski Resort.

Securus Technologies Issues Industry Challenge

Securus Technologies, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, is a the top provider of technology to prison facilities and law enforcement across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Some of the technologies they provide are monitoring equipment, public safety, and assistance in criminal investigations. The main competitor to Securus Technologies is GTL. In January 2017 Securus issued a challenge to GTL in which they would both submit to an independent judge who would determine who has the most complete set of products and services, who’s telephone calling platform features the newest technology, who’s overall platform is more efficient with capital and resources, best customer service, and other factors.

In a statement the Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, said that GTL was not telling the truth when they say that their technology and customer service is the equal of Securus. He went on to point out that his company has recently invested more than $700 million in acquisitions, a new call center located in the United States, updated as well as brand new technology, and other product developments. Smith said that GTL had not been doing anywhere near the level of investing in their business, products, and services like Securus Technology has been doing.

Richard Smith went into some details about his complaint against GTL. He said that Securus has a larger and more useful set of products for both correctional facilities and law enforcement agencies. Another issue he raised was that Securus has its own highly skilled field technicians under their employment while GTL contracts all of that out to third parties. Smith said that many of the customers that have switched to Securus from GTL have stated that it was due to Securus’ superior technology and customer service. In the last five year’s Securus has taken away $4 in revenue from GTL vs. the $1 they’ve lost to them.
