While the latest innovations in high technology offer both benefits and challenges to the officers, it is no doubt that it has changed law enforcement completely, particularly to the field of narcotics detection.

For instance, high technology has enabled Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) to launch contraband detection tools which assist drug interdiction officers and anti-smuggling agents in detecting, locating and seizing illegal drugs and narcotics which have been covertly transported across the border. The company has been leading the name when it comes to contraband detection equipment, and one of their most renowned products is the CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit.

The CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit used to be the ultimate contraband detection kit for every law enforcement agent, particularly the ones who are engaged in drug interdiction and anti-smuggling duties. This kit includes the following: The Buster K910B, the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope, the PN Series Inspection Probe Kit, the Leica Laser Range Meter and the M-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High-Intensity Flashlight, along with the custom carrying case with wheels.

The CT-30 kit has been garnering praises from law enforcement and governmental bodies for being quite useful for inspections that require speed and accuracy, without leaving any room for error and the need to dismantle the materials they’re inspecting. But despite the accolades, the CSECO team still went to work to enhance the kit.

The efforts of the CSECO team resulted in the CT-30’s upgrade to the newest CT-40 Contraband Team Inspection Kit. The CT-40 includes mostly the same equipment as the CT-30 has, only with the newer Buster K910G density meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, which replaces the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope.

The Buster K910G still retains the technology and the functionality of the older K910B – including the low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector, which makes for a fast and accurate scan across and over materials and locations suspected of carrying contraband. The Buster can detect and locate almost all kinds of contraband – from narcotics to explosives – through many types of materials like wood, metal, reinforced plastic and even organic material like dirt.

The Buster K910G is now made safer because of two things: its all-lead-based components have been removed, and its radioactive source is now 25% smaller than that of the leading density meters. These improvements have made the Buster K910G as the safest density meter on the market just yet!

Another new item on the CT-40 kit is the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, which replaces the FV-Series Fiberscope. The five-inch, multi-directional LCD color display is the videoscope’s most noticeable feature – as you can see, it has no eyepiece or viewfinder as it is a typical feature in fiberscopes. The videoscope’s large display provides sharper and more detailed images as well as brighter colors of the area being inspected. It allows the user to see these images more clearly while he stays visually aware of his immediate surroundings. In using the fiberscope, on the other hand, the user must keep down when looking at the eyepiece during the inspection. This makes the user lose his visibility to his surroundings and at the same time, this also strains the eyes along the way, causing eye fatigue.

Like the FV-Series Fiberscope, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope uses a long, thin, articulating shaft which is protected by a fuel-resistant tungsten covering. But unlike the fiberscope where you need cables to attach it to the camera, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope comes in one piece. And since the LCD display already provides clear still images and videos, there’s no need to use bothersome camera cables and other attachments.

The most important feature of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is the safety that it guarantees to the officers who are about to use it. It has complied with the safety requirements by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), which is known the world over for testing electric products, making it certified “safe” by the organization – the first distinction achieved by any visual inspection tool. The CSECO team had worked closely with the UL to ensure that the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is safe to use anywhere, including hazardous areas such as gas and diesel tanks.

Through the years, the CT-30 kit from CSECO has been the narcotics detection equipment that is proven useful, effective, user-friendly and safe. Many of the law enforcement and governmental agencies in the country have used it. Despite its equipment being considered as the best on the market, CSECO continues to improve the equipment as it continues to tackle smuggling and drug trafficking.

An inspection videoscope is a great addition to every law enforcement agent’s arsenal, especially to those working in the anti-illegal drugs/anti-smuggling department.

Videoscopes are visual inspecting tools that work like fiberscopes in some ways. But when the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System from Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) was first introduced, it was poised to outdo the leading fiberscopes and other videoscopes on the market – and it has delivered as promised!

The following are the features of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope that make it the best inspection videoscope out there:

  • Large monitor – five-inch LCD color display. It gives you a clearer and more detailed view of the areas being inspected without losing visibility of your immediate surroundings. No more squinting and strain in the eyes!
  • It has the push-button photo and video capture
  • It has the dimming and digital zoom that has the resolution 10 times to that of the leading fiberscopes
  • It has the slot for the SD card storage (you can save up to 8,000 photographs or six hours of video evidence)
  • It comes in one piece, which means you don’t need any bothersome cable attachments.
  • Long, thin, flexible and fuel-resistant shaft with a durable protective coating
  • Built-in LED light source
  • Long-life built-in rechargeable batteries

While the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is great in itself, it is also excellent when used in tandem with the Buster K910G density meter. While the Buster can detect suspiciously high levels of density in a particular object or area, the Perfect Vision V20 can confirm this by inserting the shaft and viewing the area through the large LCD display.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope doesn’t use tiny glass fibers that most fiberscopes use. Instead, it uses the high-quality video chip in the tip construction which means that the Perfect Vision is not prone to breakage, which leads to less frequent and less expensive repairs.

The best thing of all about the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is that it is the first visual inspection tool to receive the safety certification from the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), the leading authority on product safety. It means that it can be used in many areas, including risky ones like gas tanks, as the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope doesn’t cause spark or fire, or doesn’t cause a malfunction in itself or in areas it inspects – it is definitely the safest videoscope you’ll ever use!

The Perfect Vision Videoscope V20 from CSECO is indeed the best inspection videoscope you’ll ever find and use for your anti-drug operations and anti-smuggling efforts. It is efficient, durable, user-friendly and certified safe!

When you wonder when to purchase the best contraband detection tools on the market, Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) is the answer. It has the world-renowned Buster density meter, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, and other equipment.

For clients who have purchased or who plan to purchase our equipment, you may want to add your knowledge on how to properly use the products by undergoing an official training from CSECO. Purchasers may need training on the following products, namely: the Buster density meter, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, and the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit (which includes the first two equipment mentioned earlier).

For purchasers who want to undergo training at the CSECO’s facilities, they may drop by at CSECO’s office in Alameda at absolutely no charge.

But for those who want training to be held at their own facilities, CSECO will come to the location to provide the training for a standard fee. See http://cseco.com/Contact for complete office address and contact details.

Training is typically held in one day, but that still depends on the purchaser/trainee. Training consists of instructions on the proper use and maintenance of the equipment.

In the case of training on the Buster, trainers demonstrate the difference between a normal level density of an object and the density of an object stuffed with contraband, as shown by the Buster’s scanning prowess.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is one of CSECO’s latest products to be launched. Training on this equipment includes the deployment of the device in inaccessible areas like gas tanks, small openings, surface cracks and crevices, and other small openings. Trainees will also learn how to capture pictures and record videos as well as to do general care and maintenance.

One day of training typically consists of four hours for the Buster and another four hours for the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope and the other equipment in the CT-40 kit: Leica Laser Range Meter, the PN Series Inspection Probe Kit, and the PM-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High-Intensity Flashlight. This particular session includes showing photographs of some of the common anomalies found in vehicles that interdiction agents should expect, as well as proven inspection methods.

Successful trainees will obtain a certificate upon completion of their training. The certificate is an indication that the participant has become well-versed on the proper use and maintenance of CSECO’s contraband detection tools. This very certification also gives the “go-signal” to the participants to train other purchasers at their own location.

CSECO is also available to conduct training for clients outside the United States. Those who express interest in purchasing CSECO’s contraband detection equipment and training on how to use them can contact CSECO for the details of purchasing, training, and their rates. CSECO, in partnership with Highway Interdiction Training Specialists (HITS) and Global Counter-Smuggling Training Consultants, LLC, will work on providing the training in your country.

Don’t forget to get some training when you purchase the Buster density meter, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit or any of CSECO’s contraband detection tools.

Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) may be primarily known for the Buster Density Meter and others like the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System. But do you know that the company also offers other little known contraband detection equipment? They also deserve a mention, too!

Here’s a brief introduction on the Buster Density Meter. CSECO has upgraded its maiden product, the Buster K910B to the Buster K910G. Like the K910B, the K910G has the same sophisticated technology, the low-intensity gamma radiation and scintillation detector. This technology enables the interdiction officers to scan a variety of materials (from wood to metal to even organic matter like dirt). It also detects radioactive leaks, thanks to its RAD-Aware technology, which enables inspectors to set up safety zones to keep people out of the dangers of radioactivity.

Speaking of safety, the Buster K910B is now made safer because it is now devoid of the potentially harmful lead-based components (present in the K910B). It is also has the 7.5 micro curie source, which is at least 25% smaller than the competing density meters.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System can work by itself or can be a perfect partner to the Buster. This one-piece visual inspection tool has a large, multi-dimensional LCD color display which allows for clearer, more visible searches into the suspected area without losing visibility on the immediate surroundings — no more squinting in an eyepiece, thus no more eye fatigue. The monitor also has a push-button high-resolution zoom and dimming. The shaft is protected by a tungsten coating, and can be inserted in areas that the Buster cannot reach.

This amazing videoscope doesn’t have any tiny glass fibers; therefore it is more resistant to damage unlike even the leading fiberscopes.

Most importantly, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is the first visual inspection tool certified by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), making it totally safe for inspection in high-risk areas like fuel tanks.

CSECO’s other little known tools are also a must for every interdiction officer and law enforcement agent. These tools are found in the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit, the upgraded version of the CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit.

The CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit has pretty similar contents like the CT-30 has, but with a few differences. The CT-40 now includes the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope which replaces the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope, and of course the Buster K910G in place of the Buster K910B.

The complete list of tools in the CT-40 kit:

  • Buster K910G Density Meter
  • Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System
  • PN-Series Inspection Probe Kit – a set of probes with grooves, made of stainless steel. They are used to insert into the suspected area like upholstery, sacks and shrubs to trap contraband. Some probes have special tips which are ideal for gathering or retrieving sample substances. This kit includes:

    – 3/16 x 15″ SLIMLINE Stainless Steel Probe
    –  3/8 x 15″ Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel Extension with sample retrieving tip
    –  3/8 x 15″ Threaded Stainless Steel Extension with integral handle
    –  3/8 x 15″ Threaded Stainless Steel Extension Section
    –  P – 30N Pocket Pencil Probe ® with 4″ needle and sampling tip
    –  Military Nylon Carrying Sheath

  • Leica Laser Range Meter – It is used to locate possible false walls, concealed compartments in truck beds, or any other spaces with certain dimensions. It is easy to handle and easy to use.
  • PM-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High Intensity Flashlight – It enables officers to inspect hard-to-reach and darker places such as underneath a vehicle or heavy furniture.
  • CT-40 Customer Carrying Case with Wheels – Durable and shock-resistant case

CSECO also has the Radiation Pager which is a great alternative to the Buster. It is ultrasensitive radiation tool designed for use by the experienced and trained security and law-enforcement agents. It is lightweight (even with batteries included) and has the right size to be held by one hand. Despite being small and compact, this is otherwise effective and foolproof plus it’s also user-friendly.

CSECO’s lesser known contraband detection equipment is also “must have” items in contraband detection, apart from the Buster Density Meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope. They make ideal additions in every law enforcement officer’s arsenal of tools to combat drug trafficking and smuggling.

Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) is behind the Buster K910B Density Meter. It is the company’s flagship product as well as the world’s first density meter designed for contraband detection. Since it was introduced, competitors have come up with tools which are similar to the Buster in some ways. However, its sophisticated and innovative technology has almost always beaten the competition, making the Buster a “gold standard” in contraband detection/density meter.

Despite the accolade, CSECO didn’t stop looking for ways to enhance its performance. Their efforts resulted in the updated version of the K910B, the Buster K910G!

The Buster K910G retains most of the features of the K910, including the low-intensity gamma radiation and scintillation detector. It helps interdiction officers to scan several types of surfaces from wood to glass to reinforced plastic, even dirt. This very technology also allows officers to detect several types of hidden contraband such as drugs (illegal or prescribed), narcotics, money, jewelry, alcohol, weapons, and explosives. Contraband detection tools that use other technology (millimeter wave, ultraviolet wave, microwave and radio wave) can’t scan the range of materials and detect the kinds of hidden contraband like the Buster K910G does.

The K910G also retains the RAD-Aware technology which detects radioactive leaks, which are dangerous for the life of every organism. This feature enables inspectors (or first responders) to establish safety zones to keep people out of the perils of radioactive leaks (like a dirty bomb).

Other density meters weigh about three pounds or about a kilogram — considered too bulky to do one-handed inspections. Some density meters appear light at first but become heavy once the batteries are included. Some density meters contain lead-based components, which are not only too heavy to be held with one hand, but also dangerous as well.

The Buster K910G is small and compact, measuring only 5.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 inches — certainly smaller than the competing density meters. You can grip it comfortably with just one hand. Plus, it is now less heavy — and even safer to use — because it doesn’t have any lead components, which are present in the K910B. It is also updated with the 7.5 micro curie source, which is at least 25% less than the competing density meters.

The competing density meters read slowly or are not accurate. The Buster, on the other hand, has a 0.25 second per reading scan rate and has the ability to detect hidden contraband as deep as six inches! The Buster has “backscatter radiation.” The low-intensity gamma ray that beams out of the Buster “bounces off” of the suspected object and travels back to the device. The higher the density that the Buster detects, the higher amount of levels of the gamma ray will reflect back to the device. You can move the Buster from one area to the next quickly, while it maintains its accuracy.

Other density meters try to equal or even outperform the Buster K910G Density Meter. But its renowned advanced technology, durability, reliability, and safety makes the Buster K910G Density Meter from CSECO truly outwork the competition!

The Buster K910G Density Meter is the latest update of the Buster K910B, the original product created by Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). The company’s founder and owner Patrick J. Campbell designed and developed the Buster K910B with input from a number of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.

Since the Buster K910B emerged on the market and became popular, rival companies started to come up with their own density meters. However, not all density meters on the market today were created equal. Some of these gadgets employ different technologies like millimeter wave, ultraviolet wave, radio wave, or microwave into their own contraband detecting tools.

Contraband detecting gadgets that use such technology have limited scanning capabilities, and may detect only a few types of hidden contraband. The Buster K910G, on the other hand, can scan through different types of materials including metal, wood, reinforced plastic, carton, stone, brick and even organic material like soil and liquids. The Buster’s sophisticated technology has been proven for many years in detecting and locating several types of contraband such as narcotics, many types of drugs, alcohol, weapons and explosives.

The Buster’s superior capabilities will eliminate the need to tear down the material being scanned. Unlike rival density meters which do slow scanning, the Buster scans quite quickly — it can scan the whole average-sized vehicle within five minutes and an average-sized room within 10 minutes.

The Buster K910G density meter is relatively lightweight and is now easier to grip with its fully ergonomic design, a big improvement from the K910B. Other contraband detectors in the market are too heavy (some weigh as much as three pounds!). The Buster K910G is still as accurate as ever in picking up the correct level of density; once it detects an unusual amount of density, it is likely that contraband is hidden behind the surface being scanned. That very accuracy is something that rival density meters never have.

Competing density meters do not have the ability to reach less accessible areas like the underside of a vehicle. The Buster can scan these areas, thanks to the newest accessory Buster-on-a-Stick, and an extension stick which attaches to the Buster.

Other density meters may detect hidden contraband, but do they also detect dangerous radiation leaks? The Buster K910G has the RAD-Aware technology, which enables it to locate abnormal quantities of radiation. Once the Buster has positively located radiation, this will help the first responders to establish zones to keep other officers and other civilians to safety in the event of a dirty-bomb detonation.

Is your density meter even safe to use? Some contraband detecting tools may carry potentially harmful components like lead. The new Buster K910G is now lead-free, which means it is much safer to use for officers in their everyday inspections, as well as much safer for the environment! Tell us, how many contraband detectors and density meters are considered safe?

Not all density meters are created with the same functions. When you compare the Buster K910G and rival density meters, you can easily tell the difference because the Buster uses only the most advanced technology. Not to mention that the CBP agents, no less, were part of the creation of the first Buster. No wonder the CBP and other law enforcement agencies are using, trusting and recommending the Buster K910G Density Meter over competing contraband detectors.

Contraband detectors such as a density meter and a visual inspection tool will definitely help law enforcement agents locate and seize hidden contraband.

One of the most trusted names in the contraband detection field is Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) which has been in the business for over three decades. Their first product, the Buster K910B Density Meter, was a product of collaboration of the company’s founder Patrick J. Campbell and agents from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Also known as “Buster” for short, the Buster K910B has served well the majority of law enforcement and anti-illegal drugs agencies across the United States for many years. Now, CSECO has upgraded the K910B to the newest version, the Buster K910G Density Meter!

Like its predecessor, the Buster K910G still uses the low intensity gamma radiation and a scintillation detector. This helps the user to scan through a variety of materials: wood, paper or carton, metal, concrete, or reinforced plastic and even organic matter such as dirt, water, and many other kinds of liquids.

Law enforcement agents who use the Buster K910B will still be able to use the K910G for scanning through these kinds of matter without externally damaging or dismantling the items being scanned. Once the Buster recognizes a density level that is unusually high, it’s the right time for the agents to damage them in order to seize previously hidden contraband such as illegal drugs, narcotics, cash, alcohol and spirits, weapons, explosives, or other contraband.

The Buster’s low intensity gamma technology enables quick scanning. Like the K910B, the K910G has the ability to scan an entire average-sized room within 10 minutes or less, and a vehicle within 5 minutes or less.

The K910G also has the RAD-Aware® technology which enables first respondents to detect unusually high levels of radiation. This will help them to establish safety perimeters while keeping their colleagues as well as innocent civilians of the dangerous dirty bomb or any other radiation leaks.

The Buster K910G features significant improvements from the previous the K910B. The K910G has a more ergonomic design — it has been made slimmer (also designed for female inspectors or for those with smaller hands) and added with a strap to ensure of a more secure grip. The K910G also has a 7.5 micro curie Barium 133 source, which is at least 25% or more less than our competitors’ density meters. It is also now devoid of potentially-dangerous lead components inside it, making searches much safer than ever before.

The Buster will work best as it is meant to work that way — scanning mostly external surfaces, such as that of a gas tank. However, it doesn’t have the ability to probe into narrower spaces, nor can it be poked into other items such as a sack of grain. That’s why CSECO introduced another great contraband detection tool, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System. It is a visual inspection tool which can beat the leading fiberscopes currently on the market.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope can be used with complete ease, as it comes in one piece — no need for bothersome attachments such as cables. It works in the same manner as the other fiberscopes. But the Perfect Vision is very different due to its impressive features and functions.

The Perfect Vision V20 boasts a 5-inch color LCD display. It also has push-button dimming and digital zoom which enables the user to see the inspected area ten times to that of the leading fiberscope. This will help the user to focus on what is being inspected without losing visual awareness of his surroundings.

This amazing tool doesn’t have glass fibers, unlike the leading fiberscopes which means it is not easily susceptible to external damage. The Perfect Vision has a 2mmx6mm tungsten-protected shaft equipped with two-way articulation and potent LED lighting. The shaft can be poked or inserted into areas normally inaccessible to the Buster. The Buster recognizes any indication of concealed contraband while scanning a particular surface and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope will further confirm what it is beneath that surface. The Perfect Vision is also built to be used during the evening or in dark locations.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System is also certified safe by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL). Now agents will be confident when they have to use the Perfect Vision in high-risk areas like fuel tanks. Not many visual inspection tools can hold that kind of recognition like the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope does! It was the first visual inspection tool to hold such recognition.

Although already excellent individually, the Buster K910G Density Meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, when used together, can double the chances of success of locating hidden contraband.
