Prison Phone have been saving inmates at HMP Whitemoor money on their calls from the prison to any UK mobile phone since 2013.

We do this by allocating a dedicated and secure local number to your mobile phone, this means when the inmate at Whitemoor prison calls the new local number we have provided they will be charged at just the local landline rate (around 10p per minute) rather than the standard mobile rate (which is around 40p per minute).

This in turn helps to stretch the inmates PINS phone credit further and reduces the amount you need to send in for them to top up!

Here’s some facts about Whitemoor Prison

HMP Whitemoor is a category A prison in March, Cambridgeshire. Opened in 1992, the prison has capacity to hold 458 male inmates.

A & B wings hold the general population, as does C wing (also holding over 50s and induction). The Fens unit holds prisoners with personality disorders.

In April 2005, a wind turbine was being switched off in the mornings due to the flickering shadows annoying the inmates. It was halted because of possible security breaches if prisoners became upset over the flickering shadows

In August 2005, the prison was put on lockdown for two days following an explosion in a wing, prompting a full search into the firework-like blast. It caused no damage to the prison.

Another bomb went off in HMP Whitemoor on Boxing Day 2014 at 10am. The bomb was reportedly a modified cigarette lighter, and the explosion led to officers thinking it was an escape attempt. A source said, “It was terrifying – the blast echoed around the prison”
