Correctional facilities around the world face a persistent threat: drone-based contraband infiltrating their secured walls. As more facilities adopt airspace security technologies, not only are they taking an active approach to counter the drone threat, but also apply airspace security intelligence and insights into their standard security operating procedures.
Among the top threats presented by drones are contraband delivery, and hostile surveillance. Contraband entering a facility, including drugs, weapons, and cell phones, can easily snowball into larger issues. Bad actors may survey a corrections facility to observe staff or inmate movements, or aid in escapes. Today, over 50 correctional facilities around the world integrate Dedrone’s smart airspace security insights and intelligence to protect their response protocols and protect operational continuity.

Prison security teams can act today to ensure safe operations against drones. Standard operating procedures (SOPs) at prisons are advancing with new information from drone detection systems, and offers a plan of action for corrections security leaders to add Dedrone software, DedroneTracker, insights and intelligence into their SOPs.
Ultimately, the only drone that matters is the one that a corrections security team does not want in their airspace. Corrections teams can protect their airspace today by assessing the true nature of drone activity over their operations. With early detection and in-depth data, corrections facility teams can protect operational continuity, prevent contraband deliveries, and maintain control of their airspace.
