Narcotics Detection Equipment – What Are the Best Tools?

Law enforcement agencies concerned with keeping narcotics off the streets need narcotics detection equipment that is effective as well as safe. Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) has been designing and manufacturing the tools officers and agents can depend on for 30 years. Recently added to the line-up of contraband and narcotics detection equipment is the Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope Inspection System.

The Buster K910B Density Meter, or Buster for short, is a tool US Customs and Border Protection agents often turn to when K-9 units have indicated the presence of contraband. They know they can depend upon the Buster to be able to search through a variety of surfaces including metal, fabric, wood and others quickly and with accurate results. The Buster is used for narcotics detection, explosive detection and other contraband detection including weapons and currency.

The Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope is the newest and safest scope available today. It has a large (5 inch) multi-directional LCD display that takes high resolution color still images and video. It also has 3.5x digital zoom with 10 times the resolution of its competitors and push-button display dimming capabilities. Up to 8,000 still images or 6 hours of video are saved directly to the Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope unit’s SD card storage. In addition to the feature advancements over the leading fiberscope, this new videoscope is the only one on the market today that has been certified safe by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) for use in hazardous locations such as fuel (gas and diesel) tanks.

The Buster and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope can be purchased separately, but they work great when used together.  Many law enforcement agencies have purchased the CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kits because it provides a complete set of narcotics detection tools. Included in the CT-30 kit was the Buster, the FO-Series Fiberscope, PN-Series Inspection Probe Kit, Leica Laser Range Meter®, PM-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High Intensity Flashlight, and CT-30 Customer Carrying Case with Wheels.  But, agencies may want to upgrade to the new CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit. It contains all of the same tools except the fiberscope and camera have been replaced by the Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope.

The CT-PTK Personal Tool Kit is another must-have set of tools when searching for narcotics. This tool kit, containing a variety of metal probes with grooved tips, provides everything US Customs and Border Protection agents and law enforcement officers need to probe, inspect and open packages that they feel may contain narcotics or other contraband. The tools included are the large diameter inspection probe with ‘T’ handle and 8 inch extension, a small diameter inspection probe, a Multi-purpose Handheld Utility Tool with a variety of drivers, knives and pliers, and a small LED MagLite flashlight, all in a nylon case.

There are other tools available on the market, but if you are looking for the best narcotics detection equipment, start with those offered by CSECO, especially the Buster Contraband Detector and Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope Inspection System.
