The update iteration of the jammer is very fast
The new seal defender François Bayrou (François Bayrou) said that he is in favor of setting up jammers to prevent the use of mobile phones in prisons. This technology is installed in some institutions and has been tested many times, with different advantages and disadvantages. "I am in favor of setting up disruptors in prisons." The new Attorney General François Bayrou (François Bayrou), like other former Attorneys General, such as Christiane Taubira in 2015, spoke to BFMTV and RMC responded to the phenomenon of mobile phones in prison. Photographs of supervisors posted on social networks, photographs of themselves taken in swimming pools or smoking cells...Although the authorities have tried to curb this practice, the problem has been repeated for several years.
Since 2002, the law authorizes the installation of wave filters in prisons. According to our information, 804 devices are currently placed in French prisons. Problem: Compared with the development of mobile phones, technology is usually outdated. In order to upgrade and purchase a new generation of jammers, the Ministry of Justice has provided three million euros. But there is one condition. “Our goal is to ensure that in the context of permanent technological developments (such as new 5G frequencies), existing technologies will not be outdated quickly and are therefore useless.” The prison administration also pointed out that the service agencies selected in the future must ensure adjustments. Maintenance, but the most important thing is to monitor technological development.
Testing of this new technology is currently underway, and its final phase started in early June and then put into use for the first time in early 2018. This investment by the prison administration is a response to the increasing number of seizures of mobile phones. When article 57 of the 2009 Prisons Act abolished the systematic and comprehensive search of returned objects in visitation rooms, including the 2014 decree, the total number in 2014 was 27,520, compared with 33,521 in 2016. The application was filed in 2014.
A phenomenon was deplored by the prison guards. The Secretary of State of Prison CGT Christopher Dorangeville (Christopher Dorangeville) emphasized that: "Having a cell phone in a cell is one of the scourges that have lasted for many years. This is a real problem." It is pressing on the agents. He continued: "Today's problem is that prisoners are making movies with their mobile phones." Images or videos that can be sent outside, especially images or videos of prison administrators, as well as information about security systems or possible cell extraction, to facilitate escape.
We spent a lot of money on devices that didn’t work, and the authorities spent a lot of time buying cell phone jammer, but compared with the development of telephone technology, they are still behind.” International Astronomical Observatory Advocate Director Mary Kretnott regrets the prison (OIP). "But we didn't ask ourselves why the prisoners received the call. "
Therefore, the discussion surrounding the setting up of jammers will hide the broad debate about communication in detention. For OIP, "in most cases," prisoners use mobile phones to communicate with relatives. Marie Crétenot insisted: “If we don’t consider the introduction of mobile phones in prisons, we will not be able to solve the mobility problem.” For prisoners, having a mobile phone prevents them from getting it with relatives when they go to work or school. Contact: The use of phone booths in the prison is only allowed until 5.30 pm.
The prison administration is currently conducting an experiment at the Montmédy Detention Center in Meuse to install wired phones in each cell. Another way that OIP can use is verified by the General Administration of Places of Deprivation of Liberty: the legality of using mobile phones in prisons. The person in charge of advocacy praised: “Authorization and supervision are better than fighting without end”, and specifically mentioned the possibility that prisoners can go online to prepare for release.
In the case of terrorist threats, although imprisonment seems to be an incentive for some people to radicalize, the Justice Department does not seem to be inclined to this solution. The former Minister of Justice Jean-Jacques Urvoas announced in October last year a plan to protect prisons in the fight against terrorism. The plan promoted high-tech mobile jammers, but also strengthened regional intervention teams. There are 210 Name agents to increase search volume in target industries. It also provided the expertise of 22 computer scientists who specialize in computer searches for prisoners’ computers in their cells.
