The lives of prison officers and their families are at risk when the prisoners are accessing illegal phones. One of the officers who has suffered from the crime organized by inmates is Johnson. The officers were striving to confiscate illegal items in prison. One day he was lucky to obtained drugs worth $50,000 which belonged to one of the inmates. The inmate organized a gang to shot the officer using a contraband phone. The attempted murder failed, and the officer lived to tell how he survived six bullets.

Wireless Containment Solution is the only technology in the current generation that can control illegal calls in the prisons. The prisons use the technology to filter the incoming and the outgoing calls. Some calls which perpetrate the safety of the society are blocked.
Ronald Johnson serves at Securus Technologies as a consultant. He elaborated on the need to install the Wireless Containment Solution to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2017. He reiterated that the technology was necessary if the highest level of safety has to be achieved in prisons. Wireless Containment System determines how the calls should be addressed once they enter the local network. The technology has worked successfully in over ten prisons in the USA.
Securus Technologies conducted research and established that over 1.7 million illegal calls were made by the inmates between 2016 and 2017. The figures forced the company to invest $40 million in developing Wireless Containment Solution. The technology has yielded positive results in reducing crimes and violence in the society.
