Hard landing: the United Kingdom formed a unit to combat drones delivering into prisons prohibited items

The development of technical means poses new challenges to law enforcement authorities. In the UK formed a unit to combat drones delivering into prisons prohibited items.

The unit, which will include police officers and penitentiary institutions, to stop the transmission, intercept the UAV to identify and manage operators.

By the way, the fact that the division created just now, does not mean that the problem went unnoticed. In July last year to one year and two months imprisonment was sentenced the first offender, who attempted to smuggle forbidden items to inmates with the help of a drone. In October detained near the prison citizen drug and the drone in the bag from went to jail for three years and four months in prison, and in December was sentenced for another attempt to deliver the goods in places of deprivation of liberty. This time the criminal who was smuggling drugs and phones, got four years and eight months.
