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.”
