US prisons counter contraband with through body scanners

OD Security : 18 February, 2016  (Application Story)
Dutch detection equipment company has taken order for three body scanners for use in prisons in the USA to scan prisoners and visitors for drugs and contraband
US prisons counter contraband with through body scanners

ODSecurity has been awarded another contract to install a further 3 SOTER RS Through-Body Scanners in US prisons in Wood County, Ohio, Carrol County, Kentucky and a the City of NewsPort News, Virginia.

The use of Through Body Scanners in prisons is regarded as the most effective way of countering the smuggling of contraband material without subjecting inmates and visitors and staff to intrusive body searchers.

The SOTER RS is a low dosage full body scanner which combines ultra-low radiation with maximum visibility, for use at airports and prisons. Within seconds the SOTER RS reveals hidden items, such as weapons or narcotics, diamonds, or any stolen or smuggled goods. It doesn’t even have to be metal. The SOTER shows a clear difference between human tissue and other materials. Even ingested or camouflaged items will be shown.

The SOTER RS 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 RS is successfully deployed in prisons, in airports, detention centres, police and customs facilities worldwide including;   Australia, Denmark, Ghana, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, The Netherlands, The United Arab Emirates, The United States of America, The United Kingdom, Chile, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.
