Mobile phones in prison: installation of more efficient jammers

New jammers more accurate and more effective, already tested in two institutions in the Paris region, will be installed in all French prisons, said Thursday, February 26, the custody of the Seals, Christiane Taubira.

The experiment conducted in Île-de-France “seems probative,” said the ministrelors a trip to the interregional direction of the prison services in Fresnes, in the Val-de-Marne.

Blur more targeted areas

Before this test, cell phone  jammer were already in detention, but the model used was not “extremely effective”, according to the head of the prison administration, Isabelle Gorce.

To remedy this, the administration has tested a new model designed by the Thales high-tech group and adapted to the prison environment. In particular, it makes it possible to scramble communications in more restricted and more targeted areas, thus avoiding disruption to the communications of supervisory personnel.
