Body Scanning Systems Keep Drugs Out Of Mexican Jails

OD Security : 14 June, 2012  (Application Story)
SOTER RS Through Body Scanning Systems from OD Security are helping to keep Mexico's custodial centres free of drugs and other smuggled items
Body Scanning Systems Keep Drugs Out Of Mexican Jails
OD Security has sold a further 4 units of the SOTER RS Through Body Scanner to Mexico for use in drug interdiction within a number of high security custodial establishments.

Attempts to smuggle drugs, weapons and mobile phones into custodial establishments, have previously only been detected through strip searching, an outdated method, that is not only intense and unpleasant for both parties, but not always effective.

An alternative to strip searching is the deployment of the Soter RS body scanner. Different prisons across the world have already started using the Soter RS to prevent the smuggling of drugs, weapons and cell phones.

The SOTER RS is a through body x-ray system which combines ultra low radiation with maximum visibility. Within seconds you are able to see any hidden items, such as narcotics, weapons, explosives, diamonds or any smuggled or stolen goods regardless of the material. The SOTER RS shows a clear difference between human tissues and other materials. Even ingested or camouflaged items will be shown. If it is there; the machine will point it out, within just 10 seconds!

These scanners will increase the level of security operations previously possible through the use of conventional metal detectors. Non metallic objects hidden under clothes, in natural cavities or within the human body cannot be detected by conventional metal detectors and typically, these non-detectable items, such as narcotics, explosives, precious stones, plastic weapons, or other contraband, can only otherwise be detected by highly intrusive total body searches.

SOTER is already operational in Australia, Ghana, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, and The United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and Vietnam.
