Technology plays a critical role in creating a secure and safe environment for inmates, staff, and visitors in jails and prisons. While correctional facilities have traditionally been slow to embrace new technology, new security challenges are requiring these facilities to adopt different correctional security strategies. Correctional facilities are focusing more on network security, security as a service, remote services and integrated video surveillance systems.
The isolated nature of security systems in the past has lulled many correctional facilities into a false sense of security. However, as security systems within correctional facilities become more connected and integrated, it is critical to ensure the network is protected from cyber threats. With prisons becoming more crowded, understaffing remains a major operational concern. Security as a service is gaining popularity and correctional security partners are helping manage the administrative and maintenance components of a facility or security program. Security as a service leverages cloud technology, staff on demand and other services and technologies to deliver a comprehensive set of security benefits. The increased connectivity of correctional facilities presents many benefits including the opportunity to use remote services as it allows security providers to gain access and remotely serve facilities. The use of video surveillance systems in conjunction with other technologies helps in contraband detection and drive operational efficiencies.
