Monitoring system can prevent the smuggling of illegal substances into prisons
A prison visitor monitoring system can play a major part in preventing the smuggling and use of various illegal substances into prisons and correctional facilities, a concerning phenomenon that’s becoming increasingly widespread across the UK.
The technology could even help officers identify and capture smugglers, as was the case with a visitor who smuggled heroin and other drugs into a Cumbria, as a news report has recently been able to reveal.
The visitor, who was visiting her partner, has managed to smuggle inside two packages containing heroin, testosterone, a drug for treating addiction and a SIM card.
After the illegal substances were spotted by an officer monitoring the visits, the perpetrator was apprehended and handed an 18-month sentence by a judge at Preston Crown Court.
