Buster Contraband Detector: Turning to a Tool You Can Trust to Detect Contraband of All Kinds

The Buster contraband detector and density meter is the best density meter on the market today for law enforcement and US Customs and Border Patrol officers. Not only does the Buster use a low intensity gamma radiation emitter, it also has a scintillation detector which allows it to scan vehicles, residences or containers quickly – often within less than five minutes. These features make the Buster different than the other contraband detectors on the market today.

Most other contraband detectors available today use radio waves, millimeter waves, microwave or ultra-violet technology to detect contraband. They are limited to being able to scan one or two material types while the Buster contraband detector is able to scan through wood, reinforced plastic, material and metal. No damage occurs to these materials with the scan but users can locate contraband hidden behind them.

Since the Buster is able to locate contraband through a variety of materials, you can expect it to detect any type of contraband that will affect the density of the item being scanned. If a package of currency is hidden inside a vehicle seat, the Buster will find it. The Buster contraband detector will also locate illegal drugs hidden in the rear panel or other location in a car or truck. Contraband hidden inside crates or other items being shipped can also be located easily using the Buster. This tool also locates hidden contraband inside spare tires the around the wheel well.

Not only does the Buster contraband detector provide a visual readout, there is also an audible readout when contraband is detected. The Buster quickly locates concealed drugs, cash, collectibles, weapons and other contraband so these items can be removed and kept out of the hands of those who would do harm with them. Interdiction officers who have been trained to use the Buster K910B average confiscations totaling $250,000 or more per year.

As an added benefit of using this exceptional density meter, the Buster is equipped with Rad-Aware® radiation detection technology. This will allow first responders to set up a safe perimeter should there be a dirty-bomb detonation or the presence of radioactive materials.

The Buster was designed in the early 1980s and has been used by thousands of law enforcement agencies in the United States and around the world. Patrick J. Campbell, the creator of the Buster, developed the Buster with the help of US Customs and Border Patrol agents. They wanted a tool they could use that would be effective and durable. Reliability and dependability were also important. The Buster meets or exceeds all of these requirements. The Buster contraband detection equipment is currently used by agents in the US State Department, the US Customs and Border Patrol, the Department of Homeland Security, and local, state and federal law enforcement officers. International law enforcement also use the Buster density meter.

The Buster K910B Density Meter is trusted by these and other federal agencies and law enforcement, as well as international agencies, because they know it will help them locate hidden contraband.  If you would like to learn more about the Buster contraband detector or the other equipment manufactured by Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company by calling 510-864-8010 or sending an email to info@cseco.com.
