New CDCR Contraband Cell Phones website live

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) has created a new Contraband Cell Phones webpage. The new webpage includes a video describing the new law that criminalizes unauthorized cell phones inside state prison, information on the K-9 contraband search teams, and details regarding CDCR’s efforts to eliminate contraband cell phones. Cell phone use by inmates poses a security threat as it allows inmates to circumvent the monitoring process and potentially engage in further criminal behavior, which can endanger CDCR staff, other inmates, witnesses, and victims and their families.
