Whenever my team of fugitive hunters is on a case, we need to rely on any local resources possible to help us make the streets of that city safe again. We got the call that a suspect in a number of home invasions was increasing his crime spree, and my team was asked to locate him before anyone else was hurt. Without any friends or family to interrogate, we had to look for another way to get a lead on this fugitive.
One thing that I know for certain in this industry is that criminals love to brag. If they cannot tell someone about the incredible crime they just pulled off, they simply don’t feel satisfied. They figure it isn’t really a successful crime if they aren’t able to prove to someone they pulled it off. This was my thinking when we headed to the local prison to try and pick the brains of the inmates. Little did I know we were off in a completely new direction.
Securus Technologies was responsible for the installation of the monitoring system in that prison, used to give corrections officers a better chance to hear everything inmates are saying while on the phones. Soon after we made our appearance, we got a tip from one of the officers that inmates were already talking about our suspect. One inmate in particular was warning his cousin to stop purchasing any stolen goods because the feds were knocking on the door hear looking for a fugitive doing just that.
Securus Technologies monitoring systems are currently in 2,400 prisons around this country, and the staff of a thousand are all dedicated to making the world safer. That is exactly what happened when we were able to get to the meeting and arrest our fugitive before the cousin could take any action.
