Drones are a growing security threat for correctional facilities. Hostile individuals use drones to drop drugs, cellphones, and weapons to inmates in outside recreation yards, even under supervision. It’s not just the influx of contraband that poses a threat to human safety and prison security; it’s also the chaos these drops can cause.

For instance, in August 2015, a drone dropped 144.5 grams of tobacco, 65.4 grams of marijuana, and 6.6 grams of heroin into Mansfield Correctional Institution’s north yard in Mansfield, Ohio, leading to a riot among 75 inmates who witnessed the drop.

The fundamental problem with drones is their ability to bypass the multiple layers of physical security that traditionally keep jails and prisons safe. If institutions do not take steps to regain control in the drone era, the consequences could be dire. Drones could potentially be equipped with bombs to commit prison yard assassinations or used in swarms to overwhelm staff and support a large-scale inmate escape.
