With the increasing need for lawyers to have access to an internet connected device when attending the prison in order to use evidence.com to show evidence to their clients the following option is in place.

Any legal practitioner can complete Form 5AM and request that they be given permission to bring a laptop/IPad etc. with internet connection into the prison. In the ‘Description’ box the IMEI number of the SIM card should be recorded – this can be found with a search of settings. This number allows the prison to cancel the SIM card if the device goes missing inside the prison. Once this form has been submitted and approved it will allow that legal practitioner to bring their internet connected device into the prison for a period of 12 months before a new application will be required.
