Prison security screening


How to intercept narcotics in prisons and jails with detection and identification technology

As methods for concealing narcotics have become more inventive, techniques for detection and identification have had to become more sophisticated.  Trace detection technology will help your facility detect invisible amounts of narcotics, which can lead you to larger amounts. Body scanning technology can help your facility uncover contraband that has been ingested or hidden beneath clothing.  Additionally, chemical identification technology can help you determine the identity of a suspected narcotics.  This webinar will introduce you to multiple narcotic detection and identification solutions that can be easily integrated into your current security program.

Here’s what you will learn about:

  •  Methods to detect narcotics that have been absorbed in cloth and paper
  •  How to find narcotics and other contraband that has been ingested or hidden beneath clothing
  •  How to efficiently screen incoming mail
  •  Technology to detect certain synthetic cannabinoids such as K2 and Spice
  •  How to safely identify suspected narcotics

Create a safer prison environment

Precise and accurate detection and confiscation of contraband in prisons can prevent drug abuse, violence and further criminal acts.

The latest security screening technology can help keep officers and inmates safe by mitigating the risk of unrest, illness and debt which often result from access to illicit goods and improvised or smuggled weapons.

Spice – no longer invisible

The prevalence of Spice is exacerbating an already under-staffed and straining system and it has been difficult or even impossible to detect– until now! Our team has been developing detection algorithms to focus on the key chemical compounds found in the vast majority of Spice substances.

Check out our White Paper for a fascinating insight into this insidious drug, its manufacture, distribution, effects on prisoners and how and where it can be detected.

Fentanyl – a lethal narcotic

The number of drug overdoses in prisons has risen dramatically in recent years and this is largely due to the fentanyl epidemic plaguing many parts of the world. This synthetic opioid is difficult to detect when concealed and poses a danger to not only prisoners who ingest or inject it, but also staff who unknowingly come into contact with contraband drugs.
