UK Prisoners’ Phones Will Be Blocked

UK Prisoners’ Phones Will Be Blocked

The United Kingdom is going to enforce the ban on the use of mobile phones inside jails. According to these plans, mobile phone companies will be required to block prisoners who use illicit handsets behind the bars. The new law is part of the serious crime bill, which was due to be given its second Commons reading by MPs a few days ago.


The officials pointed out that some security measures had led to an increase in seizures of unauthorized handsets inside prisons. However, the new law would further increase the ability of jails to address the problem. The blockage will allow to reassure victims and prevent further criminal activity.

In other words, when an unauthorized phone or SIM card is detected by new equipment, prison authorities can apply for a court order and get the phone disconnected. The court order will be issued without the phone needing to be seized or proof that it was being used by a specific prisoner.

The UK experts confirm that the ban on the use of illicit mobile phones in jails has been on the statute book over the last 7 years. They used different measures to enforce it – for example, body searches, X-ray machines, whole body scanners, metal detectors and CCTV. Over the 2013 alone, about 7,500 mobile phones and SIM cards were seized in prisons, according to the statistics provided by Ministry of Justice.

The officials also explained that the use of unauthorized mobile phones in prisons could lead to bullying and disorder, along with enabling serious and organized criminals to continue with their activities, like drug smuggling, even from prison cells.

It should be noted that the 2012 ban on the use of mobile phones in jails also included powers to block signals, but this measure appeared difficult to enforce, because the block often also covered buildings in the immediate vicinity of the jail.

Rockman avatarWow hang on politicians enforcing the laws against the folks in prison how will they get re elected with help from the crooks they adore ? ? Let be guess the courts will say you " torture " the crooks; we need to pity those in prison.

And of course they are to lazy to make it work blocking the poor abused folks in jail they so need our forgiveness crap.

Negative_Penalty avatarWhat about stopping the phones, drugs, weapons and what ever other stuff they shouldnt have, getting in?

Better still, why not just kill all major and repeat offenders. Weak ass English justice.

Crash1 avatar@SirSeedsAlot ... WE DON'T WANT THEM. We have enough trouble with our OWN prisoners.

As for the statement "included powers to block signals, but this measure appeared difficult to enforce, because the block often also covered buildings in the immediate vicinity of the jail." ... WHAT? They've never heard of a Faraday cage? Just cover the exterior of a building in earthed chicken wire and NO SIGNAL ever gets in OR out. If they incorporate this into the design of any NEW prison or prison building (or building upgrade) it automatically becomes a signal free zone ... problem mostly solved. (they could still use them OUTSIDE if the guards aren't alert.)

No avatarInstead of spending millions and millions on all that fancy crap like xray machines and all that shit body scanners and bollocks that dont work just buy enough of these to cover the roof of the building in a 70m square grid probably 20/30 of them plug them in and hay presto problem solved as simply and as easy as that FFS wTF is wrong with these people in charge that they cant implement a simple solution like that and they only have a 70m range so hardy goint to cause the neighbourhood to shut down are they.
