If a public telephone is being used for prostitution, drug dealing, or any other illegal purpose, it is a problem telephone. Upon notification of the existence of a problem phone, the DSI will hold informal hearings to gather evidence and take testimony as to the validity of the claim. Upon confirming that a particular telephone is a problem phone, the DSI may issue an order to the licensee and the owner of the phone to either restrict usage or have the phone temporarily or permanently removed.
