Cellphone-Sniffing Dogs Reduce Contraband in NJ Prisons

The dogs, along with their handlers, travel to N.J. jails to locate cellphones hidden by prisoners. For the fiscal year that ended last June, the number of smuggled cellphones confiscated from state prisoners dropped 20 percent after rising, a study says.
