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.

Recently Damaune Journey, CSECO’s Director, International Sales & Marketing, traveled to a former Soviet Union country to provide training for Customs Authority personnel. During the trip, Journey trained these individuals on how to use the CT-30 Contraband Detection Team Kit, Buster K910B and the FV-Series Fiberscope.

Damaune Journey, CSECO’s Director of International Sales & Marketing, recently conducted training on the Buster, CT-30 Contraband Detection Team Kit and FV-Series Fiberscopes for Customs Authority personnel.

Each day of the trip we visited the border crossing with Russia. The Customs Authority personnel use CSECO contraband detection equipment including the Buster and FV-Series Fiberscope. One day at the border Customs Authority officers were able to locate two vehicles carrying loosely packed illegal Russian cigarettes in hollow compartments in their bumpers.

This photo (left) shows the hidden compartments where illegal Russian cigarettes were being smuggled into a neighboring country. Using the CSECO Buster, the Customs Authority officers were able to find these compartments. The Buster is sensitive enough to locate small and low density items such as cigarettes. Many countries in the former Soviet Union have problems with cigarettes being smuggled from one country to another. These photos (center and right) show Customs Authority agents checking tires at the border using the CSECO Buster, the best density meter available for drug interdiction and contraband detection.

According to the officers at the Customs Authority, the training provided the necessary information for “the safe use of the fiberscope probe” as well as the “more efficient use of the Buster.”
