Senator Tom Cotton Statement on Prison Cellphone Jamming Report

U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Justice announced the release of a report detailing the promising results and potential of contraband cellphone jamming technology in prisons:

“This report proves that cellphone jamming devices can prevent prisoners from using contraband cellphones without disrupting legitimate cellphone use nearby. Congress should take up and pass my bill, The Cellphone Jamming Reform Act, so that state and federal prisons can use this technology to stop inmates from directing criminal activities from behind bars.”
