Drones Cannot Defeat Securus

Securus Technologies has called the state of Texas home for over the past 30 years. From the state of Texas, they have branched out so they can provide offices ranging from coast-to-coast. Securus Technologies is a safety technology company that proudly discusses how it serves over 1000 prisons and keeps over 1.2 million prisoners safe on a daily basis. Their products have been routinely used by correctional officers, private investigators, and police officers.

 

Securus Technologies has earned the top place as the main safety technology company in the United States of America by successfully jumping over any hurdle that inmates throw at them. In the last six years, Securus Technologies has had to deal with an issue they never thought was possible. This issue revolves around the use of the hobby drone which delivers contraband items to prisoners who are locked inside the jail system.

 

The fact that hobby drones are being used to deliver various goods to inmates poses a serious security risk to citizens as well as prisoners inside the prison and the correctional officers that help keep the place safe. Prisons do not have the necessary security measures to stop hobby drones from flying over the walls and landing inside the courtyard. It is here that the hobby drone will drop off the contraband items. 80% of the time these contraband are a mixture of drugs, weapons, and cell phones.

 

Securus Technologies does not desire for anyone to be hurt from this delivery of goods. Because of that, they have put all their brain power and resources together in order to find a way to stop the drones from delivering these contraband items. After working for 18 months and connecting with the brightest people in the fields of engineering and technology, Securus Technologies believes it can use some of its existing products to stop drones from breaking the security in prisons.

 

Securus Technologies has found a way to use their long-standing Wireless Containment Solutions to stop drones coming into the prison. The wireless Containment Solutions has routinely been used to scramble cell phone calls going outside the prison system. They believe that they can alter this technology in order to scramble the signal from the drone to the operator. The moment this signal is scrambled, the drone will fly randomly and likely crash.

 

Securus Technologies is able to produce such good work and technology because they listen to the Emperor of their customers and make the necessary adjustments. Their passion for focusing on the customer has won them three Stevie Awards in the year 2017 alone. Securus Technologies has been able to receive the bronze medal, the silver medal, and the gold-medal for their customer service business.

Dick DeVos Impact on America

Dick DeVos is a businessman, politician, and philanthropist whose great works of improving education and labor in America are well recognized. Having started with the move to oppose a project of building multi-purpose sports and conventional arena in Grand Rapids, Dick DeVos brought together business leaders who teamed up to bring change and development in the city.

The couple has generously donated to support several projects like construction of a children’s hospital and several programs, institutions, and policy initiatives that concentrate on education reforms and scholarships.

The DeVos’ philanthropic work in education led to the establishment of an aviation charter high school at Grand Rapids International Airport. The need to create opportunities for low-income families equal to those of affluent families is what motivates them to improve education policies in the country. Dick and Betsy have also had their fair share of challenges in the process. For instance, when the public rejected their idea of creating tax-funded vouchers for students to study at private schools. The couple never lost hope, instead, they changed strategy and spread their approach to other parts of the country where the reforms were accepted.

Not only did Gottlieb complete the program, he also graduated magna cum laude and went on to complete a successful internship in internal medicine at St. Vincent’s Hospital.

Despite a career seemingly on track to produce a highly trained doctor, Jacob Gottlieb simply couldn’t shake his fascination with the stock market. Perhaps his fascination with both fields stemmed from his mother being a respected pediatrician while his father was a professor of economics. Jacob founded a company in 2005 known as Visium Asset Management, LLC where he assumed the positions of Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner. Jacob Gottlieb has experience as a founding member of Balyansy Asset Management, L.P. (BAM) previous to the opening of Visium Asset Management, LLC. Before either of these companies, Gottlieb was a buy-side analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., LLC and thrived as an investment portfolio manager at Merlin Financial in London, England.

In addition to his respectable educational pursuits and his success in the financial realm, Jacob Gottlieb is an individual who is dedicated to the assistance of those less fortunate. He works with a variety of charities, some of which include a poverty-fighting charity based in New York City, the nonprofit Covenant House which seeks to aid homeless children in finding food, safety, crisis care, and housing, as well as other organizations such as Math for America.

Robin Hood is the poverty-fighting charity and it is a bit unique in that their Board of Directors underwrite all program operational costs, thus providing an opportunity for every portion of the donated dollar to truly benefit the organization. Robin Hood has many financially astute individuals as part of their team so they are able to intricately analyze potential programs for the best chance at success, assist flailing programs, and generally offer the leadership training and financial experience in partnership with the new programs to offer the highest chances of success.
