I am part of an elite police force that has the responsibility of getting dangerous fugitives off the street. These are the types of criminals who will stop at nothing to keep their freedom, so if an innocent person gets in their way, they have zero issues making things violent. Before another person was put in harm’s way, my team was called upon to locate this suspect and take them in without anyone getting hurt.
Our suspect was very well-known, in fact, they were making several calls to my captain’s office every week instructing me to meet him personally so we could settle this issue like real men. We would never put our own in danger this way, but we knew we must be rattling his cage if he was so obsessed with me instead of staying out of the spot light.
During my visit to the jail to see if I could get any inmates to help with the investigation, we discovered Securus Technologies was already working on installing the new inmate call monitor system. This software can listen to the inmates on the phone and pick out certain verbiage that we are looking for. We decided to see if the LBS software could locate any conversations concerning our suspect and get him into custody.
Within a few days we hit the jackpot. One inmate was irate that the suspect was out in the open, and he knew the suspect was staying with his family on occasion and didn’t want his big mouth to put his family in trouble too. Not only were we able to get to that location and catch the suspect completely off-guard, no one in the jail even knew we used an inmate and his conversations on the phone to help point us right to the suspect without any incidents.
