Collecting Criminal Evidence Using Securus Technologies

One of the duties of being a fugitive hunter is making sure to close the case as quickly as possible so that less innocent people are impacted by the actions of this suspect. The case we were working on this month was especially troubling because soon after he escaped from prison, he held a convenience store clerk up at gunpoint, he carjacked a vehicle at gunpoint, and he shot at authorities who had him surrounded in a park.

 

Our suspect had no family or friends in this region who could help us tighten the noose, so I returned to the jail he escaped from in the hopes of getting information from inmates who may have heard something. This was a very challenging situation because inmates don’t talk to the police openly for fear of being labeled a snitch.

 

During my time inside the prison, I discovered that they had recently signed up with Securus Technologies and were utilizing an inmate call monitoring system to keep close tabs on inmates. This company has 1,000 employees who are working towards the objective of making our world just that much safer for us all. Once I discovered how the LBS software worked, I couldn’t wait to see if we could identify chatter with the inmates concerning the fugitive that we were hunting.

 

It didn’t take very long before we discovered conversations between inmates and family talking about the recent escape. One inmate in particular was very clever in how he kept asking his family how their new guest was doing. Had it not been for the fact we identified this inmate as a distant relative of the suspect, we would have never connected the dots.

 

Our team swarmed that location and busted in at the crack of dawn while all occupants, including our suspect, was sound asleep. He was back in jail before he could hurt anyone else.

 

The Real Estate Magnate: Nick Vertucci

Part of Nick’s philosophy in life is that his past does not dictate his future. He grew up in a loving home and was well cared for by his family. However, he was by no means a wealthy kid. His first major challenge in life came when his father died when he was just ten years old. His mother was forced to work long and hard to provide for both him and his siblings. When she came home late, Nick and his siblings were mostly already asleep. When he turned 18, Nick was living in a van, and his life had just but hit rock bottom.

His Fortunes Begin to Change

Nick Vertucci caught his first lucky break when he began a small business selling computer parts. He immediately fell in love with the freedom that being his own boss gave him. He later decided to get married and out of that came three beautiful kids. Things were going just fine until the dot com crash that happened in 2000 according to fortunesinflippingevent.com. He watched in horror as his life’s work dissolved right in front of him. Unfortunately, Nick Vertucci had not made any plans for the future.

His Second Chance at Success

About a year and a half, Nick Vertucci had no income and debt kept piling up. He lost everything but managed to salvage his home. During this period of hardship, a friend of his invited him to attend a real estate training seminar that took place over the course of three days on nvrealestateacademy.com. He was apprehensive at first since he did not want to waste three days of his life while he was in so much debt. However, looking back to that conference, Nick Vertucci says it was probably one of the most important decisions of his life.

Nick Vertucci soaked in everything the speaker at the conference had to say. He did not understand everything that was being said, but something clicked. From that day, he knew that he had found a lifeline on how to get out of debt. He felt inspired and renewed, and he continued to study and train about real estate.

It took him nearly a decade to gather all the information that he needed to succeed, but he kept at it. Eventually, he was able to come with a system that would help him make money in real estate without having to struggle so much.

Nick Vertucci Just Wants to Spread Knowledge

When Nick Vertucci finally reached the pinnacle of success, he knew that he had to teach his system to others. He did not want to be in as much debt as he had been. Nick said he sympathizes with people who are struggling. He knows they have the drive to make it, but they just do not know how to do it. That is his purpose in life. He wants to share the knowledge.

Whitney Wolfe-Feminist of the Dating Scene

     From the very beginning of her business career, Whitney Wolfe has been a promoter for bettering peoples lives. At the age of 19, she started making a difference for areas effected by the BP Oil spill by selling bamboo tote bags. A small kindness turned into a blossoming non-profit organization called, “Help Us Project”. Her continuing need to help others took her to Southeast Asia where she dedicated her time with orphans. Eventually her business decisions led her to start a dating app with a special purpose.

A Movement of an App

Whitney Wolfe doesn’t view Bumble as just another dating app, but as a movement. A chance for men and women to treat each other, to view themselves differently, and to view dating in a different way. Finding your perfect match is as easy as swiping right or left. But this time, the women are in control. When there is a mutual attraction, it’s a match. However, it is up to the women to make the first move. With a countdown of 24 hours before the match expires, it doesn’t leave much time for worrying or over thinking.

Beauty and the Bumble

The purpose of Bumble is to empower women. In Whitney Wolfe’s observation, she sees that most bullying for girls happens through social media. In wanting to start an open conversational app which let girls converse freely, she was reminded that her expertise was in the dating industry. So she created an app that could do both. Be a successful dating app yet at the same time promote feminism.

Success it’s Finest
