When I am working on the fugitive task force, I have to use every resource at my disposal to take criminals off the street. This month my superiors told me that we had a very dangerous fugitive that was still committing crimes without fear of being arrested. The suspect already warned the police to stay away or he was going to take out his frustrations on the next group of people he robbed. He was not kidding, as he beat two innocent bank tellers within inches of their lives.
The big problem we had now was I was unable to contact family or friends of the suspect for help because they would simply run and tell him. This meant we had to make use of a resource we had not tried as of yet, but a this point was willing to do anything to see this suspect in custody. My next visit was going to be to the local jail where the inmates would play a huge role in solving the case.
Normally inmates will never talk to the police, they simply have a code and they do now want the label in jail of being a rat or they suffer the consequences. My plan was to use the inmate call monitoring system that was installed by Securus Technologies to get the answers that I needed. The company has the objective of making our world safe, and I was about to see if this was the case when it came to a very violent suspect.
Hours after I learned the LBS software, I discovered conversations from inmates who were talking about the money this suspect owed them. They were talking about meeting up with him after their release, so me and my team decided to head over to that meeting place and discovered our suspect hiding in plain sight.
