The US Department of Justice has released a new report on how federal prisons are identifying and addressing drone threats. The general conclusion is quite simple: unauthorized use of unmanned aerial vehicles will cause even more trouble for prison staff in the long run, if the government doesn’t enforce the law which governs the use of innovative gadgets. Prison officials have also raised concerns that drones will be able to transport inmates from prison.

Currently, lawbreakers use UAVs mainly to smuggle drugs, syringes and other prohibited items. But who knows what will occur in the nearest future. In 2018, the Federal Bureau of Prisons recorded 23 drone incidents. In 2019, 57 incidents have already been reported, which already gives strong reasons for concerns and decisive action.
