Prohibited List

Post by PlantPot »

Hi everyone!

I received a list of items that are prohibited in the prison and it mentions mobile phones, can we still bring our phones to the Poelt or is there anyway to store them when we are live?

Heya

Poelt is a good opportunity to have a phone purge to be honest. You can take it but encouraged not to use it.

In terms of phones. If you get a locker it can go in there if not leave it in your car.

Thank you for your reply! With my last job the only time I saw my phone was turning up and leaving so I'm use to it unfortunately! I was just asking in case of emergencies.

You may need your phone to take on your journey to work, but you can’t take into prison. It can be easily done by mistake , when brand new ! Make a point of telling the gate officer in your establishment ( normally an OSG behind the desk ) that you’d like somewhere to store your phone, they should provide you with somewhere, or look after it themselves.
Alternatively, if your car is in a prison car park you could leave it in there.

How bloody hard is it to get a bunch of small lockers to put valuables in prior to entering the prison, not everyone travels by car, if I leave mine on the horse and cart someone is bound to pinch it !

99% I leave it in my car, no I usually stay in the tea room with the officers, if I go out of the establishment to the shop I may grab it, if someone wants me they can ring the prison lol
