RE: TOTAL WIRELESS SECURITY
It's not entirely true that only law enforcement may monitor cellular
communications. Here is a device that will warn users that they have a cell
phone on, but will not enable one to listen to the conversation. The primary
use is as stated in the ad, environments with sensitive equipment which may
not react well to cellular communications. This will also sense phones that
are not in use but turned on.

Depends...if these areas are small and surrounded by places where cell
phones/pagers/etc flourish, there's just about no way. You're also going
to have a problem with cellular detection in that only law enforcement
is allowed to have devices that scan on those frequencies. A better bet
might merely be jamming them all, but that is also illegal under FCC
