Bureau of Prisons Tests Micro-Jamming Technology in South Carolina Prison to Prevent Contraband Cell Phones

This week, the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) conducted a pilot test of micro-jamming technology at the Broad River Correctional Institution in Columbia, S.C.  The test – the first collaboration of this kind in a state corrections facility – was conducted to determine if micro-jamming could prevent wireless communication by inmates using contraband cellphones in a housing unit.   This test follows two earlier tests at a federal corrections facility in Cumberland, Maryland.
