Part of my job as a corrections officer is making sure that every person inside the prison is as safe as possible. This does not only mean the other officers that I work with, this means the visitors to the jail and all the inmates themselves. When you add into the mix things like drugs and weapons in the hands of the inmates, it creates a very dangerous situation for all involved. The way that we try to limit the flow of contraband has drastically changed over the years.
When Securus Technologies reached out to our facility about updating the inmate call system, we had no idea how much of an invaluable resource this was going to become in our efforts to stamp out contraband getting to the inmates. This company is run by CEO Rick Smith, who says his Dallas-based company and all of the one thousand employees are constantly working towards the one objective of making the world safe. We planned on putting this objective to the test on day one.
While the LBS software is hard at work scanning the calls for things like drugs, weapons, or other contraband, we can now focus our other officers on physically looking for these items. It is almost like we doubled our staff by using the call monitoring system, and it has already yielded huge results. We discovered how inmates are getting illegal items into the jail, where they are hiding it in the jail, and who is bringing these items to the jail.
At the rate we have been collecting this evidence, the inmates are going to run out of ways to try and game the system going forward, all thanks to Securus Technologies. In short order we have made the jail safer for all that are behind the walls.
The Bumble dating application is about to have a location in New York City. The exciting new space will be called the Hive and is expected to be perfect for dates, fans of the site or simply hanging out. This location is the beginning of the company’s attempt to formalize their community. Numerous individuals have formed around Bumble’s brand.
Although many of the current dating applications are thought of as taboo, Whitney Wolfe has founded a brand that surpasses dating. Bumble is a brand people take pride in associating with and many of them do not use the application for dating. The company has plans to expand on BumbleBizz in the future so they can assist their users with their social networking skills.
Couples can stop by the space during the week to meet up, meet friends or just check it out. There will be relationship focused events including Whitney Wolfe, the founder of Bumble, female entrepreneurship, style sessions with DryBar and a session with Forbes. The space will feature a regular bar, a coffee bar, and Bumble merchandise. The proceeds from all Bumble merchandise sold will go to charity.
