This bill authorizes the Commissioner of Corrections (commissioner) to establish a program within the Department of Corrections to install and operate within State correctional facilities a managed cellular access system. A managed cellular access system is a communications system consisting of technology and equipment which deploys a secure cellular communications network within the bounds of a State correctional facility to permit the authorized transmission of voice, text messages, images, and other data to and from cellular telephones and other wireless communications devices. If established, the bill requires the commissioner to implement a managed cellular access system that does not interfere with 9-1-1 and other emergency communications and that operates at the lowest possible transmission power level necessary to manage the authorized transmission and reception of signals from cellular telephones and other wireless communications devices originating from or terminating within State correctional facilities. The bill also prohibits the system from interfering with the transmission and reception of signals from cellular telephones and other wireless communications devices originating from and terminating outside of State correctional facilities. If established, the commissioner is to annually report to the Governor and the Legislature on the effectiveness of the program.
