Using CSECO Inspection Probe Kit for Narcotics Detection

US Customs and Border Protection (US CBP) agents as well as local, federal, and state law enforcement have an important mission to keep illegal drugs off the streets. That's why they need the CSECO Inspection Probe Kit. It is a contraband detection tool that will help them positively identify the presence of contraband. Since their jobs often put them into risky situations, they also need detection tools that are deemed safe for them to use.

Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company, or CSECO, understands the importance of keeping illegal drugs, narcotics, and other contraband off the streets. That's why CSECO offers the Inspection Probe Kit, for detecting narcotics.

Together with other CSECO products such as the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope and its signature product the Buster K910B Density Meter, the Probe Kit increases the likelihood of locating hidden narcotics.

CSECO has been manufacturing the Buster K910B Density Meter since 1984. The Buster uses backscatter radiation to detect changes in the density of objects being scanned. The technology allows users to scan and obtain positive results in just a matter of minutes (depending on the size of the matter of space being inspected). Unlike contraband detectors that use microwave, millimeter wave, and ultra-violet wave technology, the Buster can scan a variety of surfaces including reinforced plastic, wood, and metal without damaging the external surfaces being scanned.

CSECO's newest product, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, is the perfect tool to replace old fiberscopes. The videoscope has similar components like the fiberscope, but it boasts a large, multi-directional high resolution color LCD display. This display provides ten times the resolution of the leading fiberscope. This allows the user to clearly see into the inspected area without causing eye fatigue and allows them to keep an eye on their surroundings as they are scanning.

When the Buster and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope are able to positively identify the presence of concealed narcotics and other contraband, reaching it can be sometimes difficult. This is the type of area where the CSECO Inspection Probe Kit is needed.

The CSECO Probe Kit consists of stainless-steel probes with grooves that are designed to "catch" narcotics and other contraband when they are inserted into various materials. The materials can be boxes, upholstery, sacks, bushes, and anything else that cannot be normally reached by hand.

Here's what inside the CSECO Probe Kit:

  • 3/16 x 15" SLIMLINE probe (stainless steel)
  • 3/8 x 15" heavy-duty extension with sample retrieving tip (stainless steel)
  • 3/8 x 15" threaded extension with integral handle (stainless steel)
  • 3/8 x 15" threaded extension section (stainless steel)
  • Expandable from 29" to 57"
  • Military nylon carrying case to house the probe parts

PN-30 Pocket Pencil Probe

  • 4" needle and sampling tip (stainless steel)
  • Retractable needle
  • Pocket clip which makes handling easy

When using the CSECO Inspection Probe Kit together with other CSECO products like the Buster Density Meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, they will increase the chances of positively identifying narcotics, illegal drugs, and other contraband items.
