SOME jail officers in the Cebu City Jail will be placed under investigation for letting inmates use their cellular phones to contact people outside of the facility.

Supt. Jessie Calumpang, jail warden, admitted that he found out that inmates are able to communicate because his men let them borrow phones.

"We received intelligence reports that some jail officers sneak in cellphones to inmates after they are offered an amount of money," he told SunStar Cebu.

The facility conducts greyhound operations every day, but Calumpang observed that they still managed to confiscate one or two cellular phones each time.

"Our security by the gate is strict already. I have information that some officers were identified to be the ones who let cellphones in by hiding them inside their vehicles," he said.

Calumpang also stressed that contraband still manage to get inside the facility.

Next week, Cebu City Councilor Dave Tumulak will facilitate the installation of signal jammers in the two-hectare facility to deter drug personalities from communicating with their suppliers.

Hopefully, the jammers will prevent drug personalities from continuing their illegal drug trade, Calumpang said.
