‘Clean Sweep’ Results In Major Contraband Seizure At Bordelais Correctional Facility

spot_img

A joint operation dubbed ‘Clean Sweep’ involving Correctional Officers and the police resulted in the seizure of over 140 mobile telephones, marijuana and hundreds of other contraband items at the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF).

According to reports, officers seized about 1, 500 contraband items.

The operation on Thursday last week began at about 7:00 a.m. and lasted until around 6:00 p.m.

Heavily armed officers went from cell to cell conducting searches.

They reported that the inmates were ‘generally compliant’.

In addition to mobile telephones, the haul during ‘Clean Sweep’ included ‘cell made’ weapons.

According to the website Justice Trends, contraband cell phones have long been an ongoing security and public safety concern across penitentiary facilities around the world.

The website observed that although confined, dangerous inmates have used the devices to direct criminal activity.

It also noted that having a working mobile phone may also give inmates an element of power within a prison that can benefit them.

  1. They need to do a clean sweep of the police officers there as well cause they are also the ones that bring in the countraband to the criminals. What about the female officer they got with contraband what happened to that case it went under the rug

  2. What about the cell phone service companies providing service to phones that are calling from the jail?

  3. THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED THE UNIVERSAL CHARGER THEY JUST NEED ONLY ONE AND PASS IT AROUND BUT WHY DOES INMATES HAVE OUTLETS IN CELLS OR NOT , IF NOT SOME OFFICER IS CHARGING THE PHONES FOR THEM. THERE IS AN APP OR SOME IPHONES YOU CAN REDIRECT PHONE CALL TO ANOTHER, SO SOMEONE CALLS A PRISONER FROM OUTSIDE THE CALL WILL GO TO A PHONE OUTSIDE AND REDIRECTED TO THE PRISONER, PHONE COMPANIES CANT STOP THAT FROM HAPPENING. SO DONT THINK ITS IMPOSSIBLE. ALL IN ALL PEOPLE OUT SIDE AND INSIDE THE PRISON HAVE TO BE WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN. SO SHAKE DOWNS IN PRISONS CANT STOP CERTAIN ACTIVITIES FROM HAPPENING. THEY ARE ONE STEP AHEAD PRISONERS ARE OVERTHINKERS MOST OF THEM DONT SLEEP AT NIGHTS, I KNOW. THATS PART OF MY JOB, IN MY COUNTRY. PLEASE BE ALERT.
