Securus Technologies Cracking Down on Drugs in Jail

Me and my fellow corrections officers work tirelessly each day to ensure the safety of every person in our prison. If one inmate can bring drugs into the jail, he can basically sell it to dozens or more, and then we have gone from a dangerous to deadly situation in the blink of an eye. We are already outnumbered by these inmates, and adding drugs into that mix only makes it that much more challenging to maintain order in a hostile environment.


To try and keep the problem from getting out of hand, me and my fellow officers work hard in the visitor center to maintain that no one gets anything to the inmates. We monitor interaction and do searches of everyone that comes into that area of the prison. We send a team of officers to different cells during the day to try and locate any drugs that may have gotten by our team searches. Even working at this each day, the flow of drugs seems to just continue as it always has. Once Securus Technologies installed our call monitoring system, we felt like we had a team working with us to clean up our facility.


The team at Securus Technologies all work towards the single objective of making the world a safe place for everyone to live. Knowing this monitoring system is already in over two thousand jails, we felt like we had a strong connection with their team and could really put a dent in the flow of drugs. Once we made use of the LBS software, it would pick up unique chatter from the inmates regarding who was in possession of drugs, how they got the drugs, and where they were hiding drugs in our jail. Each alert gave us the ability to tighten things down and stop the flow of these drugs.


Alfonso De Angoitia Noriega & The Transformation Of Mexican Media

Over the last 20 years, the media industry in Mexico has made some drastic changes. There are still some allegiance concerning critical investigations of the government in journalism. This is the case with television giants, such as TV Azteca and Televisa. However, there are great changes in which much of Mexico enjoys:

1. Cable TV news and Radio Broadcasting- even though Carmen Aristegui, CNN contributor, was booted off the air after assisting in the expose of significantly embarrassing government corruption, other cable TV news networks and radio broadcasters are still available to chose from.

2. Magazines- there is an array of more established and newer magazines on the market. Some of the bigger names include Proceso and Nexos. Some of the highly anticipated newcomers include Chilango, Emeequis, and Gatopardo. There are also Mexican versions of worldwide magazines, like Esquire and GQ.

3. Digital Media- Legacy news organizations sometimes experiment with digital media; however, mainly independent Mexican outlets, like SinEmbargo and Animal Politico, are largely dynamic with online news. With social media remaining strong and for some time to come, the general public worldwide tend to participate more so with social media. The day of limited and controlled protection of people in power on TV is no longer. With social media giants, like Twitter, more people are sharing opinions, and thus, possess a larger role in public debates.
