Drones flying drugs into jails

Remotely operated drones are being used to fly drugs into WA jails, prompting a review of the State Government’s prison security measures.

Amid increasingly sophisticated efforts to smuggle contraband into the State’s prison system,The West Australian has learnt that drones have been used to skirt around detection measures for at least a year.

In one case, it is believed accomplices of inmates at Wooroloo Prison Farm repeatedly used a drone to deliver bundles of drugs into a “pod” housing multiple prisoners at the minimum security facility.

The revelation comes amid the rapid advancement of drone technology, which is stumping authorities around the world as they try to regulate it.

Traditionally, efforts to smuggle contraband into prisons in WA have centred on stuffing it inside tennis or squash balls and hitting them with a racquet over a jail’s perimeter.

Alternatively, items have been buried where prisoners can access them.

While not foolproof, systems for dealing with such techniques are relatively straightforward.

But the use of drones poses a more complicated challenge to countermeasures because they can be operated remotely — from up to 1km or more away — and with precision.

Acting Corrective Services Minister Liza Harvey said the Department of Corrective Services “is constantly on alert for contraband smuggling — real or potential”.

“Criminals and their associates are always looking for new ways to smuggle contraband into prisons,” she said.

“The potential prison security threat posed by drones was discussed at a recent national meeting of corrective services ministers.”

DCS said it did not comment on specific security matters but was constantly reviewing its arrangements for “current and emerging technologies” with the help of a national working group.

Measures to “deter, disrupt and prevent contraband” included specialised squads with sniffer dogs, random searches using tip-offs, equipment able to detect tiny traces of drugs and chairs that scan “body orifices”.

It also worked closely with WA Police to gather intelligence on contraband trafficking and punished prisoners found to be taking drugs.

WA Prison Officers Union secretary John Welch said regardless of whether the Government had detected drone use, it was imperative security systems be updated to account for the threat posed by the technology.

Shadow corrective services minister Paul Papalia said it was a matter of time before drones were used over prisons and an analysis should be done to identify the threat and how it could be countered.

Is that a euphemism?  I love how this article barely mentions butt stuffing, do they not do that in Aus?
