Drug addiction and substance abuse remain a rampant and persisting problem. Law enforcement and customs officers use narcotics detection equipment to help them detect hidden narcotics in vehicles that travel through the borders and checkpoints.
Narcotics can change how the brain works and interfere with the user’s ability to think clearly and make choices, leading to intense cravings and compulsive drug use. Over time, that behavior turns into drug dependency.
Drug dependency and crime are closely related. In today’s society, drug dependency and crime rates have continued to rise concurrently. Smugglers would find creative ways to stash narcotics and other illegal substances in parts of vehicles that, they believe, customs cannot access.
But technology has paved the way for Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) to introduce detection tools using the latest and the most sophisticated technology. They can help law enforcement, customs and border patrol, and correctional officers during checkpoints or screenings in detecting every type of hidden narcotics within minutes or even in just seconds.
Two of CSECO’s most popular products are the Buster density meter and contraband detector and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System.
Law enforcement and customs and border patrol officers may be already familiar with the Buster density meter. It was CSECO’s first and is its flagship product. Since it was first introduced, it has been lauded as the “gold standard” in contraband detection equipment.
The Buster density meter is a handheld detection tool that uses a low intensity radiation emitter and scintillation detector to quickly scan vehicles, structures and any other items or spaces for hidden narcotics and other contraband. The Buster’s technology allows the inspector to determine whether a suspect vehicle tests positive for narcotics (or other contraband) within five minutes and allows them to scan an entire average room within 10 minutes.
The Buster can quickly zero in on the specific type of narcotics and opioids hidden inside underneath parts of vehicles – even places that are normally inaccessible such as car seats, dashboards, and gas and fuel tanks. It can identify concealed items through wood, metal, reinforced plastic, and other material types without causing damage to the items being inspected.
It uses both visual and audible readouts to alert officers to the presence of contraband.
The Buster is known for its durability, accuracy, and reliability. It is also waterproof and weather-proof, which means it be used under wet and damp conditions.
The latest update of the Buster, the Buster K910G, is made safer than its earlier version. Its radioactive source is now at 25% smaller than any other density meter and all lead components have been removed. These improvements make the Buster the safest density meter for human use and for the environment.
The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System will make an ideal accompaniment to the Buster. As the Buster alerts the users the presence of hidden narcotics and other contraband, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope visually confirms it by finding its exact location.
It is a one-piece visual inspection tool, some of whose features resemble the fiberscope. But the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope will make inspections quicker, longer, more productive, and safer.
Being a one-piece visual inspection tool, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope does not need any camera attachments. It is because it has a push-button photo and video capture and an on-board storage (via an SD card slot), which allows the collection of up to 8,000 photos or six hours of video evidence. These features allow ease of use, leading the quicker inspections.
But the first thing you would notice about the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is its large (5-inch), multi-directional high-resolution color LCD display with push-button dimming and digital zoom that is 10 times the resolution of the leading fiberscope. The large display provides clearer and more detailed image of the hidden narcotics and other contraband being located. It also allows the user to see clearly into the suspect area without losing visibility to their immediate surroundings.
One of the most important features of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is its UL safety certification. This is to certify that it is a non-incendive equipment and meets the applicable UL safety standards. You can use the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope for more thorough examinations in normally hazardous areas like gas and fuel tanks.
Billions of dollars’ worth of narcotics and other contraband have been detected and seized by customs and border officials using the Buster density meter, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, and other CSECO products. With quality equipment that use only the most sophisticated and powerful technology, CSECO leads all the way when it comes to narcotics detection equipment that help keep drugs off the streets.
