Cellsense®, the leading name in cell phone contraband detection for prisons, received a glowing review in CorrectionsOne*, the leading resource for up-to-the-minute information for correctional officers. The review was written by Joel Herron, the former Chief of Security for the North Carolina Department of Public Safety-Prisons, where Cellsense was used to detect over 400 contraband cell phones during a nine month period.
Joel Herron’s review chronicles his experience in fighting cell phone contraband for a state prison system with sixty-six correctional facilities. Herron says, “I realized just how unique and specialized Cellsense was, and that its light weight and portability made it the perfect tool to move from different locations within the prison and search large numbers of inmates with great efficiency, precision and thoroughness.”
In the review, Herron outlines techniques to search inmates, mattresses and pillows. Besides the over 400 contraband cell phones, his facility used Cellsense to confiscate “large numbers of other dangerous items of contraband such as homemade shanks, razor blades, tattoo guns, needles, lighters, battery chargers and homemade battery packs.”
Herron adds, “Cellsense is by far the single most effective tool in the fight against inmate contraband I have witnessed in my thirty-year career with the prison system.”
Cellsense is dedicated to providing complete solutions for cell phone contraband detection. Founded by military scientists inventing landmine and submarine detectors, Cellsense products are deployed in correctional and police facilities in over 20 states, worldwide embassies, high-impact government buildings and other commercial security applications. Cellsense protects correctional facilities, security personnel and the public around the world from the dangers of smuggled inmate cell phones and weapons.
