Drones are a growing security threat for correctional facilities. Hostile players are using drones to drop drugs, cellphones and weapons to inmates in outside recreation yards, even when corrections officers are supervising these areas. It’s not just the influx of contraband that is a threat to human safety and prison security; it is also the chaos that such drops can cause. 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. A riot ensued among the 75 inmates who saw the drop take place.

The fundamental problem with drones is that they can easily bypass the multiple layers of physical security that have traditionally kept jails and prisons reasonably safe. If institutions do not take steps to regain this control in the drone era, the consequences could be dire. There is no reason a drone couldn’t be equipped with a bomb to commit a prison yard assassination – or swarms of drones used to overwhelm staff and support a wide-scale inmate escape.
