This can help to increase the chances of revealing [[contraband]] or predicting riots. It requires a [[guard]] to operate it at all times. The phone tap requires [[electricity]] to function, and must be [[Electrical Cable|wired]] to any phone booths you wish to monitor. Before a phone tap can be installed in your prison, [[Bureaucracy#Security Sub-tree|surveillance]] must be researched in the [[bureaucracy]] tab.
The information gathered from phone taps will not be utilised automatically by the [[guard]]s or given to the player. You will have to check the Informants view in the [[Intelligence]] menu regularly to make use of this feature.
Only available guards will operate the phone tap device, i.e. guards that are not deployed in any room, or for patrol, or needed for tasks like escorting prisoners.
