Some of this equipment has been acquired and others will be received shortly, the release explained.
With the use of such equipment, a joint team comprising of DELTA Squad and Prison Officers, conducted a search of Her Majesty’s Prison, with a focus on detecting cell phones and other communication devices. During the search one cellular phone was detected with the use of the specialised equipment.
As a result of this find, an investigation has been commenced to identify all persons and methods involved and used in achieving this security breach.
The Commissioner of Police has been assuring the general public that all efforts will be employed to ensure and maintain not only an improvement of the standard of investigations, but also to ensure that witnesses are better insulated from possible actions of persons in custody, as the security forces continue to take back our streets.
