|Once operational these scanners will be able to check both clients, visitors and staff for contraband
Netherlands based security manufacturer, OD Security announced that they have been awarded another contract to install 2 SOTER RS Through Body Scanners, this time in Kentucky County Jails.
Measures to prevent contraband
The contract is to supply 1 each SOTOR RS Through Body Scanners to Puleski County Detention Center and Boyle County Detention Center in Kentucky . Once operational these scanners will be able to check both clients, visitors and staff for contraband in an effort to reduce items like; drugs, tobacco, weapons and cell phones from being smuggled into the prison.
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.
Improve security operations
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.
