Cellsense®, the leading name in cell phone contraband detection for prisons, is used by East Baton Rouge Parish Prison in Louisiana in their efforts to combat smuggled inmate cell phones. The Advocate reported on 6-14-14 in “Prisons crack down on contraband cellphones“ about the dangers as inmates use cell phones to intimate witnesses, plan escapes and plot crimes from behind bars. Warden Dennis Grimes of East Baton Rouge Parish Prison says the portability of Cellsense makes it ideal to find phones not just on inmates but also on employees who may inadvertently lose their phones or be corrupted into selling phones to prisoners.
Officials seized 90 cellphones in state prisons during the 2010 fiscal year, a figure that ballooned to 384 in fiscal year 2013, according to corrections officials. Louisiana’s East Baton Rouge Parish Prison hopes to find more contraband phones, and joins the growing number of county, state and federal correctional facilities using Cellsense.

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.
