More cell phone blocker in jail on later postponed

Berlin – The installation of further cell phone jammer in Berlin prisons is on ice. Priority was given to the rehabilitation of detention centers, according to the response of the Senate Department for Justice to a parliamentary request by the Greens. The so-called mobile communications suppression should be expanded in the juvenile detention center and started in the correctional facility Moabit. With their help, detainees are prevented from being able to make uncontrolled calls to the outside world via cell phones that have been inserted illegally.

Before the conversion of the sub-department II in Moabit, the installation of such facilities would not make economic sense, it was now. In the juvenile detention center will now be retrofitted an installed system. Originally planned for the entire project 3.2 million euros. Now the costs were reduced to 2.3 million euros.
