Guam - Department of Corrections Director J.B. Palacios says he has not been notified of any contraband in his facility since the agency began its daily inspections last month. Palacios says their K-9 units walk through both the Mangilao and Hagatna facilities, conducting perimeter inspections. He says other inspections are done as well, and that the contraband problem hasn't been occurring since implementing a ban on visitors bringing in electronic devices.
"As far as just the general inspection, Public Health comes up their once every two weeks and they do our sanitation inspections, so where very good and were very confident and its one of the cleanest, safest places that you could be in right now," the director said.
Just this year officials found a couple cell phones and a wireless modem inside the facility. Officers were informed of the devices after an inmate posted pictures of himself on Facebook.
