Securus Technologies Is Making Changes With Robert Johnson’s Help

An ex corrections officer is aimed at helping to put a stop to cell phones inside of the cells of many prisons. Robert Johnson has been motivated to putting an end to the cell phones being inside of the prisons. When cell phones are inside of jails, it possess a danger to inmates and to the communities.

 

For Robert Johnson, he had been working in the corrections field for over 15 years, and the primary job that he held was to make sure that inmates did not possess items that were considered to be contraband. While he was good on the job, while in his own home, he was shot.

 

Two weeks prior to being shot, Johnson had helped to stop a package from being delivered. This package was to be delivered to a prison gang and was said to have a value of $50,000. On March 5th, 2010, Johnson had got up at 5:30 am in the morning to go to work and was then shot. He had heard a large boom at the front of the house and his front door had been kicked in and was then hit.

 

Robert Johnson was in the home when the door was kicked down and when he tried to stop the intruder from approaching any further into the home due to his wife being in the home. It was then that he was pushed backwards and was then shot. Robert had been shot six times in the chest and stomach. The gun man shot him from just a few feet away.

 

Robert said that the doctors and hospital preacher had prepared his wife for the worst. They had prepared the wife for the worst case scenario. The doctors had stated that his case was that of a miracle. Johnson had died twice while on the operating table and was determined to make it out of surgery. Every time that he crashed, he came back by making sure that everyone knew that he wanted to live to see justice.

 

The inmate who had expected the package inside of the prison had made contact with a gunman who was paid using a prepaid card through a contraband cell phone. Since this day, Johnson has underwent 23 surgeries and even though he lives with pain daily, he actively works to help put an end to contraband inside of prisons.

 

Since this time, Robert Johnson has signed on with Securus Technologies to be a paid consultant. The company has reached an agreement with the state of Florida to provide paid calls for the inmates in prisons in the state. It has since started using a wireless containment system which stops cell phones from being able to access networks inside of the prisons. The system is then logged onto the phone that connects to the network and the number that connects can be done with however they see fit.
