Hello,

Are you asking whether police can record an inmate without that inmate's consent? The answer is that yes, they can if they have a warrant. If you're asking whether they can force an inmate to wear a wire to record other inmates without his consent, the answer is no, they cannot.

If you're asking whether they can somehow imbed a wire in an inmate without his knowledge or consent, th answer is no.
