The Department of Correctional Services said three inmates at the Pollsmoor prison in Cape Town who opened a Facebook page and posted images of themselves in jail, will face disciplinary action soon.

An investigation has been opened, and a joint operation, comprising correctional services and other law enforcement agencies, has been initiated to get to the root of the illegal activity.

Department Spokesperson Manelisi Wolela said the department has continued to strengthen its security operation.

“One of those interventions which are part of the 6 pillar integrated security strategy of the department is the installation of the state of the art cell phone detection technology which has begun as part of the pilot phase of the rollout of this program which covers 7 facilities across the country”.

2 are in KZN which is Umzinto and Durban Westville, 2 in Western Cape which is Goodwood and Pollsmoor, 2 in Gauteng which is Johannesburg and Gosi Mampuru correctional facility and one in the Eastern Cape which is St Albans Correctional Centre, Wolela added.
