Default New higher tech contraband detection

Moyer said the new technology will make conditions safer for corrections officers. He said officials began evaluating Cellsense after the death of a veteran corrections officer at a Delaware prison in February.
Sgt. Steven Floyd, 47, was found dead after a nearly 20-hour hostage standoff at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna, Del.
In April, James Vinci, a 17-year veteran correctional officer at the North Branch Correctional Institution in Cumberland, was stabbed by an inmate.
Damean Stewart, security chief at the Dorsey Run Correctional Facility in Jessup, said corrections officers have found “a lot more” contraband items using the new detectors. He said the items have included makeshift weapons, cellphones, needles, and tattoo guns, which he said can pose risks for officers doing searches.

If this works it makes the inmates safer too.
