Reducing Violence Using Securus Technologies Call System

Working in a jail is perhaps the most dangerous job in the world. Each day that I go to work could be my last because these inmates may attack at any time. Even if they do not attack me or my fellow officers, they could hurt other inmates or even people who visit the jails. To combat the violence in our jail, we deploy a number exercises that has turned things around in recent years.


One of the first things that me and my team of corrections officers will do is to search every person coming to visit an inmate. Even with numerous signs posting that jail time is a possibility if caught with anything illegal, many visitors will take the risk because they will do anything for the inmate. In some cases, these visitors know getting arrested will only give them credibility in the jail and that appeals to them.


Later in the day, we surprise the inmates with cell inspections. Even with the help of the dogs, we usually only find things like weed or small trace amounts of other drugs. Getting the drugs is important because a high inmate could turn into a potentially violent inmate.


We used to make use of the inmate phone system to try and listen in and intercept trouble, but these inmates can be very skilled at hiding how they talk about things that could incriminate them even further. The LBS software with the new Securus Technologies inmate call system was about to give us a new way to combat violence in the jail. Almost immediately, the system would alert us to chatter between top ranking inmates and their gang members, talking about getting weapons through the visitor center, where to hide them, and which inmate was a target. This technology has allowed us to stay a step ahead in many of these violent episodes.

Erick Lefkofsky Talks about Centralization of Cancer Patient’s Data

During the Fortune Brainstorm Health Conference, Mr. Lefkofsky reveals that for effective treatment of cancer, doctors, clinicians, and researchers need to work together to achieve the best outcome. They need to share information relating to specific cancer patients and how they are responding to treatment. At the same time, data on what seems to be working for patients should be available when needed.

Erick Lefkofsky says that all the data needed by various people in the health industry is out there, but a platform to combine and interlink the information is missing. He also says that if one visits a cancer treatment center and asks for specific information, it will require a grant and a minimum of 90 days to be able to get the information. Eric argues that this data should not be difficult to find, instead, it should be easily available to clinicians, researchers and other interested parties.Eric aims at providing an avenue for oncologists and neurologists to freely collect data for research and analysis. This has led him to develop Tempus, a creation that runs through existing electronic medical records and pathology systems, taking information, filtering it and then sending back the filtered version of information to each source. This collective data can then be used to provide detailed information about patient treatments and how they are responding to their specific treatment.
