Law Enforcement Depends on This Narcotics Interdiction Equipment

The job of law enforcement and drug interdiction agents is quite a tall order indeed. It carries a lot of risks and uncertainties, especially if they don't use the right equipment to get the work done. Having efficient narcotics interdiction equipment is crucial in stemming the spread of narcotics and illegal drugs, preventing them from further destroying people's lives and the society as a whole.

Since the very beginning, Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) has pledged to help Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents, the police and drug interdiction officers in their war against drugs and illegal smuggling. Using the latest in technology and having worked with the top federal and national law enforcement agencies, CSECO has come up with a line of products that will ensure more productive inspections and searches for narcotics and other forms of contraband.

The Buster density meter is the first product from CSECO. Developed, designed, and tested by company owner Patrick J. Campbell and CBP agents in the 1980s, the Buster has come to be seen as the "gold standard" in contraband detection equipment. Using low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector technology, the Buster can perform quick, thorough, and accurate scans of suspicious objects or areas (such as vehicles suspected of hiding contraband). While other contraband detection tools have limited scanning and detection capabilities, the Buster can scan almost every type of surface, and can detect almost every type of contraband. You can use it to scan vehicles, walls, furniture, and even soil.

The Buster's use of high technology enables it to verify whether the density level of a suspicious object remains normal, or otherwise unusual (especially when scanning naturally void objects such as car tires). The sudden and often abnormal changes in a suspicious object's density are an indication that a contraband item is likely to be stuffed or hidden inside it.

The Buster is also equipped with the RAD-Aware technology which enables the detection of the harmful radioactive matter. Once the radioactive matter is detected, first responders will know the safest place to establish a safe-zone that will keep personnel and civilians away from possible dirty bombs or radioactive spills.

The newest version of the Buster, the Buster K910G, promises safer inspections as all of its lead-based components are now removed.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System provides an efficient, user-friendly, and safe alternative to the leading fiberscopes and rival videoscopes on the market.

Its 5-inch LCD color monitor provides the user a better view of the object or area that is being inspected, without losing sight or awareness of the surroundings. It also has the push-button dimming and digital zoom (that's 10x better to the resolution of the leading fiberscopes) which makes it possible to see the images on the screen clearly.

The long, thin, and flexible articulating shaft is fuel-safe and has a built-in camera and a powerful LED light source. It can be probed and inserted in areas that otherwise cannot be easily seen or are hard to reach. The Perfect Vision V20 videoscope is not made from tiny glass fibers, so they are not liable to break easily, unlike fiberscopes.

There's no need for camera attachments as the Perfect Vision V20 videoscope has all the needed features in one gadget. Aside from the built-in camera, this tool also has an SD card slot for external saving and storage of photographic and video evidence. It can save up to 4000 still images or 6 hours of video clips. You can also purchase a larger SD card which will allow you to store more photos and video clips.

The Perfect Vision V20 videoscope was the first videoscope to receive a safety certification from the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), having met and surpassed the UL standards. Officers can use it even in high-risk areas such as fuel tanks, as the videoscope doesn't spark dangerous flames or doesn't malfunction when used in such conditions.

Drug interdiction officers should also need the Inspection Probe Kit for probing, inspecting and opening packages and other suspicious items, as well as extracting substances. This set of stainless steel inspection probes are ideal to use alongside the Buster and/or the Perfect Vision V20 videoscope, which narcotics interdiction officers use to confirm the presence of a hidden contraband first. Once the contraband is confirmed, they can now use the probes to locate and remove the contraband.

Leica Laser Rangefinders are ideal to swipe across possible false walls, cargo containers, and vehicles suspected of carrying hidden contraband. It does so by comparing the suspected area's internal and external dimensions to verify the presence of hidden compartments. This flexible and high-precision tool is easy to operate and handle.

With the combination of all the tools mentioned above, they all make an unbeatable team of narcotics interdiction equipment to locate and seize the narcotics off the streets. For more information on CSECO's products, contact CSECO at info@cseco.com.
