Jails and prisons need robust and reliable body scanners to keep out drugs, weapons, cellphones and other contraband.
The dangers of illicit drugs inside correctional institutions are well known, especially now with the surge in opioid addiction. Addicted inmates are medical threats to themselves and potential physical hazards to others.
Weapons inside jails and prisons increase the risk of violence, serious injury and death to inmates and correctional staff alike. It is vital that correctional facilities detect any weapons being smuggled in during screening – including inside body cavities.
Cellphones and other forbidden electronics are a relatively new challenge to correctional security, but just as concerning as drugs and weapons. Cellphones pose significant dangers: They allow inmates to illegally communicate with associates on the outside and instigate criminal acts while in custody.
