Introduction of Contraband into a Correctional Facility, Cellphones
Mobile technology helps people connect and communicate regardless of their location. The need to contact the outside world has led to inmates smuggling cell phones into correction facilities without considering that it is a criminal offence to introduce any contraband in facility.
In this case, contraband involves cellphones, drugs, weapons and other prohibited items. Cellphones are the most smuggled among the category of contraband. This device allows inmates to communicate with the outside world making it hard to control them.

The concept of differential association addresses difference in the social groups (Bruinsma, 2014). There are those in the case of introduction of contraband who supports the act and those who are against it. Considering the case raised in the study, there will be a group of persons who support and facilitates introduction of cellphones in correction facilities.
These people will aim at winning majority as possible while, on the other hand; there are those who stands on the right side of the law. Using this theoretical model explains why there is a need to support those against the practice and also need to implement laws that solve the problem otherwise it the issue will continue (Bruinsma, 2014).
