Illegal cell phones in Trinidad and Tobago’s prisons have become a lucrative business.
The comment came from Prison Commissioner, Gerard Wilson yesterday as he spoke in his first in a series of “Conversations with the Commissioner” which was streamed live on Facebook.
The conversation was aimed to interact with members of the public who posted questions or concerns they may have on the Trinidad and Tobago’s Prisons Service and its officers.
Wilson admitted that the Prison Service has been working to re-engineer itself.
He said in 2019 the Prison Service will roll out a customer service programme to ensure that families of inmates have a pleasant visit.
“So they (inmates) will be provided with an account and they would be able to request from the officers what items they need.”
