My last few years working as a corrections officer have been some of the more challenging. Inmates are getting lengthier sentences in our facility and have no regard for officers anymore because they know those sentences can not be extended further than they are. Even with tighter restrictions on inmates, we are starting to lose ground as they are not getting drugs and contraband easier than any other time, so we are at serious risk of danger any second of any day now.
To that end, my superiors decided that it was time to bring in some resources that would hopefully level this playing field.
If the inmates are in the prison guest center, we have access to a number of scanning devices that will detect anything that should not be on either. If the scanner detects visitors are trying to smuggle in anything, we get it out of circulation before it has a chance to get to the inmates. If we scan the inmates after the meeting and they have anything, we have the chance to get it before it makes it back to their cells. We also added the new jail phone monitoring system by Securus Technologies to our arsenal.
Securus Technologies has been instrumental in making prisons a safer working environment for officers and for keeping violence to a minimum towards anyone that has to be behind those prison walls. Now that we are alerted by the LBS software when an incident on the phone occurs, we can be in a better position to take immediate and swift action.
Case in point, last month we had a serious problem with cocaine being sold but couldn’t find the source. One night an inmate was on the jail phone talking about how the guest needed to be careful with the exchange this week. It was enough to have us monitor them and take down the drugs.
ClassDojo is an application used by parents, students, and teachers to exchange files and messages in, video and audio formats, and also text messages.

The ClassDojo is currently used by both teachers and parents as a data sharing app. The application enables teachers to keep track of the records of the activities performed by students in a classroom.

This keeps parents furnished on the relevant information regarding their children.
Bettering the student’s behavior and the organization
The app assists students in setting up and organizing their classes. The ClassDojo app uses distinct avatars to arrange different classes assigned to a student. This then allows teachers to award a student, or students working in groups with points which are either positive or negative. Students can get an immediate update of the points awarded to them once an avatar assigned to them is clicked.
Class Dojo app records the conducts and achievements of the students in a single click on the app thus saving teacher’s lot of time in classrooms. This is so because teachers are also saved the time of keeping tabs by putting check marks on the list of students on the board.
