Update on Cell Phones in Indiana Prisons

Back in February I posted about the unspoken economy of cell phones in U.S. prisons. These cell phones obtained by prisoners pose a serious public safety risk as they have been used by gangs to carry out hits on gang rivals outside the prison or to relay messages to other prisoners to cause violence in other prisons.

I recently contacted the Indiana Department of Corrections for an update of how many cell phones prison guards have confiscated in 2015. I want to thank INDOC spokesperson Isaac Randolph for the information.
