Securus Technologies Keeping Drugs from Prisoners

Drugs in the hands of inmates can put the entire prison population at risk. I’m a corrections officer in a very crowded prison, and adding the element of drugs into the jail makes a very dangerous environment a deadly one. Although my team works very hard to keep all sorts of contraband out of the jail, these inmates have become quite crafty at getting the things they want into their cells. Little did we know earlier this year that Securus Technologies was going to help us to put a huge dent in the drug problem at our prison.


Visitors to our prison are warned that if they try to bring anything into the facility, they risk spending time in their own jail cell. One of the issues we have to struggle with daily is that many gang members will have no trouble smuggling in drugs to their fellow gang members in jail because if caught, they wear it like a badge of honor and earn the respect of the high-ranking gang members in jail. With nothing to lose, these street soldiers will take the risk because the rewards are worth the effort.


Securus Technologies was on site earlier this year to install an updated inmate communication call monitoring system. The system we had was dated, requiring officers to be on the calls and trying to collect information in real-time.


Now we had a system that could do the job of several officers, being able to identify chatter about drugs and helping us to stop the flow instantly. In one week we discovered information from those calls about inmates hiding drugs around the jail, using drugs once the lights went out, and which inmates were ordering others to sell drugs and kick back the money to these higher-ranking inmates who hid in the shadows.


WEN To Cleanse

WEN Cleansing Conditioner is made from natural products to ensure the best health for all hair types and textures. Cleansing conditioners are known to be a better alternative for shampoos. This is because shampoos are known for containing sulfates and silicons that strip the hair of its natural oils which causes dryness and can damage hair in long run. Cleansing conditioners cleanse the hair while leaving natural oils intact.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner can also be used as a deep condition, detangler or a leave-in. So, if you decided to leave in the product post-wash, it’s safe and will promote further moisture to your hair. WEN Cleansing Conditioner cleanses the hair while retaining moisture within the hair.

Now let’s get into the ingredients that are used in WEN Hair products. One of the main ingredients used in the cleansing conditioner is glycerin. Glycerin is the main ingredient used to promote moisture for the hair. The next main ingredient is chamomile which soothes the scalp. Chamomile is useful for those who have a dry, itchy or sensitive scalp. Fortunately, there are many options when it comes to choosing which cleansing conditioner to use on your hair. Some of the top ones are lavender, tea tree and sweet almond mint. The Lavender Cleansing Conditioner contains lavender oil which helps to relieve stress and anxiety. It also contains avocado oil which is light insuring not to weigh down the hair while moisturizing. The Tea Tree Cleansing Conditioner contains tea tree oil which stimulates hair follicles to promote hair growth. Tea tree oil is also known for its anti-fungal properties to further cleanse the scalp. The Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner is a signature WEN product. It promotes softness and shine as it moisturizes while containing rosemary extract to promote hair growth. WEN Cleansing Conditioners are a great option for those looking for a natural product to help grow and strengthen their hair.
