Can cell phone jammers be used in the classroom? Has any school bought a jammer?

Sure, it’s tempting to try and keep your students on task by taking away their cell phones. But it’s not worth the legal or financial repercussions from school administrators and the FCC.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has a zero-tolerance policy for radio jamming devices. The FCC regulates all wireless communications, including cell phones and landlines. According to the FCC, “it is illegal to market, sell, import or use any type of device that intentionally blocks or jams radio signals.” A electronic cell phone jammer can disrupt cell phone calls as well as text messages and Wi-Fi systems within range of the device.

The devices are also illegal to market, sell and use in most countries around the world because they disrupt public safety communications such as 911 calls or other emergency services. In fact, the United Kingdom recently outlawed the sale and use of mobile phone jammers after reports that terrorists were using them during attacks on civilians on London Bridge last year (2018).

Jammers are radio frequency transmitters that intentionally block, jam, or interfere with authorized radio communications.

In the United States, it is illegal to market, sell, import or use a jamming device. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has taken aggressive enforcement action against individuals who have marketed and used jammers. The FCC has issued hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines for such violations.

In addition, many states have passed laws that prohibit the possession or operation of jammers within their jurisdictions. In some cases these state laws may also apply to federal law enforcement officers.

They can be used to disrupt cell phone calls, text messages and Wi-Fi systems.

Jamming devices are illegal in the United States. They disrupt cell phone calls, text messages, and Wi-Fi systems. Law enforcement agencies use jammers to prevent criminals from communicating through their cell phones while they’re being interrogated.

Because they are illegal, no school has bought a jammer yet. It would be extremely expensive for one school district to buy enough jammers to cover every classroom in their schools, so it makes sense that nobody has bought them yet.

Jamming devices are illegal to market, sell, import or use in the United States, and the FCC has taken aggressive enforcement actions against individuals who have marketed and used jammers. The FCC has issued hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, seized jammers and cooperates with federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute violators to the full extent of the law.

The FCC’s rules also allow state or local law enforcement agencies to use jammers in limited circumstances, such as during an emergency response by an agency that employs or contracts with trained law enforcement personnel (with prior authorization from the FCC).

However, manufacturers can obtain equipment certification if they use jammers only for research or testing purposes.

Violation of these rules could result in a fine up to $16,000 for each violation, imprisonment up to one year for criminal violations and/or forfeiture for noncriminal violations.

“No person may willfully or maliciously interfere with or cause interference to any radio communications of any station licensed or authorized by or under this chapter or operated by the United States Government.”

It’s important to note that this law applies not only to those with technical knowledge but also those who would seek out a jammer from an electronics store or online retailer and use it on other people’s phones in public places where there is no expectation of privacy (like classrooms).
