A very interesting interview with the Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner, Brian Owens on the problem of contraband cell phones in prisons.
Provocative quotes from the interview:
“Cell phones in prison are simply a matter of power, money and gangs.”
“Illegal cell-phone use in Georgia prisons has developed to “epidemic” proportions and is now the system’s greatest safety threat.”
Interestingly, the interview did not include any discussion of deploying demand-side solutions such as a secure prison cell phone solution to reduce the contraband value of smuggled cell phones.
