When my fugitive task force gets the call of a fugitive that needs to be found, we spring into action utilizing a number of key resources at our disposal. First thing we do is to reach out to family and friends of the suspect to see if anyone will cooperate. When this doesn’t pan out, we will even do some surveillance on these folks just to make sure they are on the up-and-up. We even make used of anonymous informants if they are willing to talk to authorities.
This was not going to be this case with this suspect because he was deep i hiding and hot contacting anyone he knew. He would strike when he needed cash or drugs, leaving a wake of destruction behind. The only piece of the puzzle we had was his brother already in the local jail. Our other resource, the inmate call monitoring system, was going to help us break this case wide open.
Securus Technologies installed the monitoring system in the jail, and it allows officers to pick up on conversations from the inmates using the LBS software. We trust this company because their CEO, Rick Smith, says all of his employees work towards keeping the world a safer place for all. Already installed in 2,600 prison systems, we knew we had a great tool for closing the gap on this fugitive.
As expected, his brother could not keep quiet and was talking on the phone to his family about his sibling. His conversations were short, but he did tip us off to a location where the inmate could be in hiding. That night, we surrounded the location and took the fugitive down as he walked to the store to get some smokes. No injuries, no violence, just a capture thanks to Securus Technologies.
