destination of the call) cannot be readily identified or verified. This number is not a traditional telephone number located at a residence, business or other such location but merely a number within the telephone switching equipment local to the facility where the offender is housed.
c.RCF initiated calls to an unidentified terminated number can and are being easily forwarded to unauthorized telephones. This forwarding is done through the normal 3-way call hook ups. This in fact negates the security mechanisms achieved by the requirement of approved telephone lists. Safeguards to prevent calls to victims, to blocked or restricted numbers or to prevent other unauthorized call activities are defeated by the use of an RCF number.
d.RCF usage creates an opportunity to conduct criminal or illegal or unauthorized activities since the end call location is not readily being identified, verified or its actual location known. This affords untold opportunity for offenders to engage in potential scams, to call victims, to facilitate escape attempts and to engage in other conduct representing significant security risks to the facility.
e.The offender population shall be put on notice that all third-party telephone calls, including RCF calls, are strictly prohibited and such activity will result in appropriate disciplinary action.
f.Wardens shall develop a monitoring system to analyze the frequency of local calls. High frequency may indicate RCF utilization. When RCF calls are discovered, a system wide block of the number shall be initiated pursuant to Section D.1.d. of this regulation.
