The drone technology has been growing at a fast pace, and for many different sectors, it is a boon. But, problems arise when the drone technology is being misused and creating security threats for the law enforcement agencies. Since drones are becoming more sophisticated and less costly, they are widely used by criminals to smuggle illegal materials inside the prisons without being caught. Even though it’s a federal crime to fly drones near high-security areas such as airports and prisons, criminals defy the rules to ensure that their partners and associate inside the prison have control inside the prison that allows them to enjoy specific benefits which others do not get.
Inmates pay outsiders to smuggle in cell phones, drugs or even weapons inside the prison for them to use using drones. The most prominent benefit that the criminals have with these drones is that they do not have to be in the vicinity of the prison to control the drones. They can be several kilometers away and still can control the drones easily.
Thus, it is up to the technology companies such as Securus Technologies to take matters into their own hands and develop systems that would allow the prison officials to put a stop to smuggling via drones. The amount of contraband found in the prisons has been increasing with the every passing day, and drones have played a significant role in this rise. The drones are small and are easily able to drop small packages in the prison compound without getting noticed, and it is what has helped inmates to get drugs, contraband phones, illegal medicines, and even weapons inside the prison facilities using drones. If the inmates are easily able to get the contraband inside the prison and the correctional officers can’t stop it, things would get worse inside the prison. The lives of many inmates and officers will be in danger if weapons continue to flow freely inside the prison. Many of the officers and inmates have lost lives due to the contraband supply, and the count of lives lost continues to increase due to the supply of weapons happening through drones.
Securus Technologies has recently introduced the drone detection technology, which is currently in its infancy stage. The company’s CEO, Rick Smith, believes that this and many other technologies offered by the company would help revolutionize the correctional sector and contribute tremendously to making the corrections space much safer and more secure. He also talked highly about the company’s commitment towards its customers, and to back his claim of excellent customer service, Securus Technologies won Gold Stevie Award for the best customer service in 2018 in three categories, which exemplifies the emphasis the company lays on customer service.
End Citizens United is a political action committee, or PAC, that keeps on changing the political climate in the United States. The political action committee was established in 2015 and since their formation three years ago, the group transformed as today’s most vocal and influential political action committee. Its membership is believed to include millions of people around the world, and they managed to create their list of senators whom they will be endorsing and supporting. End Citizens United has been very vocal with the issues concerning the current administration of President Donald Trump, and they vowed that through their influence, they would be able to change the political arena in the United States in years to come.
One of the most recent news involving End Citizens United is their announcement of support for Senators Cory Brooker and Kristen Gillibrand. They are supporting the two senators because they have publicly announced that they will not be entertaining any donations coming from private corporations and corporate political actions groups. According to the political action committee on usatoday.com, private corporations which have billions in funds are the ones who are corrupting the elections in the United States. They wanted the influence of the private corporations to dwindle, and they promised that they would never support those who will benefit from the donations coming from big businesses. End Citizens United lauds the decision of Senators Cory Brooker and Kristen Gillibrand, and they promised to provide additional funding for the two senators.

The announcement of Senator Cory Brooker was posted on his Twitter account last February 14, 2018, and he included a statement of gratitude for the political action committee because of their tireless campaign against the private corporations who are trying to manipulate the politics in the United States. He also pointed out that campaign finances should not be given with conditions, and it should only be pure donations. The opposite is true for the state of politics in America today. Politicians are seeking the support of big businesses because they would want to have huge funding for their campaign. In exchange, they would have to side with the corporations and continue to protect them from any legal implications.
Earlier, End Citizens United has already praised Senator Kristen Gillibrand for rejecting the donation given to her by the company Johnson and Johnson. She stated that American politicians should never receive any money from big businesses, and they should always side with what is good for the country. The political action committee is calling for other politicians to follow suit, and they are pleading to everyone who wanted to bring change to the United States to contribute to their causes by asking their politicians to do the same, and they will be able to see the results in the near future.
