Summary (original language)

One of the most important challenges related to internal security
 of prisons is caused by the prisoners’ desire to use illegal substances, including alcohol, drugs and doping. Today, most prison administrations have quite good methods of detecting alcohol and drugs in prisoners’ bodies, even though these detection methods are used quite inconsistently. However, there are no simple and widely used method in prison for detecting the presence of illegal doping substances in prisoners’ bodies. The article shows the need to provide prison administrations with a method of detecting doping substances in prisoners’ bodies. The ESI-MS (mass spectrometry with electrospray ionization) method was also presented, which − according to the author − could be used by penitentiary systems as a mean of detection.
