Contraband 1113Interceptions of contraband continue at Northward Prison, with over six pounds of ganja found between early October and mid-November 2013. Also detected in the Northward compound in this period were 13 cell phones and chargers.

While Her Majesty’s Cayman Islands Prison Service remains committed to its zero-tolerance approach, efforts are being frustrated by members of the public who continue to try to smuggle items to inmates, or throw them over the double-perimeter fences.

In spite of these security breaches, management and staff continue to focus their efforts on making the institution a safer environment for staff and prisoners alike.

“The most concerning part is that, as our information suggests, these drugs are being delivered or transported by members of the general public,” said Prison Director Neil Lavis.  “It is important to remind people on the outside that it is a criminal offence to smuggle, or attempt to smuggle these items into the prison premises.”
