How Our Team Uses Securus Technologies to Catch Criminals

Catching criminals is no easy task, especially if they are working with a network of family and friends who want to keep them being caught. The one thing we can count on as fugitive hunters is that someone is going to talk, it is just a matter of time being in the right place to collect that information before the suspect hurts any innocent residents. When you are dealing with suspects who want to stay hidden however, then you have to rely on others to point you in their direction.

 

One of the ways I used to collect information on suspects was heading to the local prison and listening in on calls certain inmates make. I have had huge success listening to inmates talk about fugitives, then providing me clues that lead me right to their door. That was my plan with my latest fugitive, until I discovered that Securus Technologies installed a new inmate call monitoring system that would change the direction of my efforts. This system has been utilized to do the work of several officers in less time.

 

Securus Technologies has 1,000 employees based out of Dallas Texas who are as committed to their jobs as I am. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, says his entire company is dedicated to making the world safe for all. The team trained me to use the LBS software, and I decided to see how it could monitor my suspect. Within hours it detected some chatter from in the jail from an inmate who was inquiring about our suspect with his family. The best part of this call monitoring system is the inmates know we are listening, they either forget, don’t care, or just think they are talking in a way that slips under the radar.

 

In the past I would have had to listen to specific inmates talking and hoping they say something. When you do not know the connection of the inmate to the suspect, that can be impossible to make the connection. The new call monitoring system was able to listen to all the calls by all the inmates, and make short work of picking up unique chatter we needed to put a close to this particular case.

 

The call would go on to explain that the inmate knew who was housing the dangerous fugitive and could the family get the suspect a message. I was going to change the plans and deliver that message in person to the suspect. We arranged a sting operation and surprised the suspect while he was sleeping. He was reunited with his jail cell thanks to the chatter of another inmate who had no idea he was doing in his friend.

Outside of business life, Marc is deeply passionate about helping people through a Dallas homeless shelter called The Samaritan Inn; see more at www.thesamaritaninn.org. Spark’s heavily involved in many life-saving projects there since the ’80s. He delivers a hand up and not a handout at the campus; he is all for helping those who wish to help themselves. The shelter houses approximately 160 residents every night, and the average turnaround is only five months.Learn more : http://www.fundacity.com/marc-sparks

 

The shelter turns away nearly 75 people a week who wish to enter the program for counseling, financial guidance, job placements, family services and health assistance. Sparks was often brought to tears when past residents graduated and, a year later, he would share of how well they’ve done. It’s a humbling experience.

 

His passion for building has also proven useful in his involvement with Habitat for Humanity: He has personally assisted in constructing more than a dozen homes. He also supports American Can! Academy, a top network of magnet high schools. Throughout his Sparky’s Kids Foundation, he has donated more than 1,000 brand-new computers to at-risk youth to help them break the poverty cycle.Learn more : http://sparktankdfw.com/

 

To counter stress, he’s also a health enthusiast and outdoorsman. He hunts, fishes, hikes, bikes, puts, works out at the gym, and indulges in adventure travel. Sparks thrives on competition in sports and business. He has nearly traveled around the globe in 23 days and has explored a few of the world’s most exotic places, like Easter Island – home to the ancient moai statues – Machu Picchu, Morocco, Angkor Wat, Agra Xi’an, Tibet, and even the Serengeti. He believes that adventurous travel is any entrepreneur’s mecca, getting more inspiration and ideas through his travel than he does elsewhere.

 

On February 27, 2013, Leicel Dismukes congratulated Sparks on his success and new life. He remembers when Sparks made his first 100K: Sparks earned a watch and went to Acapulco to celebrate. Dismukes was pleased to learn that the Lord had also been a major part of Spark’s life, seeking his continued Blessings.

 

Zig Ziglar once called Sparks most gracious and generous, deeply appreciating his life. He also highly valued their relationship and considered it one of the most exciting things in his life. He thanked Sparks and blessed him highly.
