Re: how about..

Came on to ask the same thing, I work in prisons occasionally as part of my role and there are three nearby, two of which are literally inside residential areas. That's a lot of innocent people with their phones being tracked.

I honestly can't see any reason for not blocking mobile signals in prison grounds - it is doable to within a few meters in most cases other than them using those mobiles to intercept information on crimes taking place outside prisons.
