How a common airport screening tool can catch drugs behind bars
The opioid crisis is affecting nearly every corner of America. Correctional facilities are no exception. Inmates and their associates are endlessly inventive when it comes to smuggling drugs and other contraband items into jails and prisons. Behind bars, these substances can be incredibly disruptive, as well as dangerous to the health of inmates and staff alike.
Keeping order and safety is paramount for corrections administrators. Thorough screening and search processes are necessary to prevent contraband from entering a facility, as well as to detect and confiscate drugs that do manage to make their way behind bars. A variety of strategies and technologies, such as trace detection, can help corrections officers perform more efficient and effective searches for contraband drugs.
