Keeping the community in order, chasing after the bad guys and doing crime investigations – calling the job of police officers challenging is an understatement. Their job often puts these police officers’ lives on the line.

Intercepting drug trafficking and smuggling is also one of the duties of police officers. Knowing how difficult, challenging, complex and risky this particular job can be, there should be contraband detection equipment that has all the features that police officers are looking for. Contraband detection equipment that officers put their full trust.

Their search for such contraband detection equipment should end with the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit from Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). If you are familiar with the CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit or used and loved it before, then you’re going to love the CT-40 even more.

Like the CT-30 kit, the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit has the Buster density meter, the PN – Series Inspection Probe Kit, the Leica Laser Range Meter, and PM-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High-Intensity Flashlight and a carrying case with wheels. But what makes the CT-40 different to CT-30 is their visual inspection tools – the CT 30 has the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope while the CT-40 has the newer Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope.

Let us focus on the two major items of the CT-40 kit: the Buster density meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope.

The Buster density meter is used in detecting hidden contraband. It uses low-intensity gamma radiation and scintillation detector which can quickly scan vehicles or spaces that are suspected of carrying hidden narcotics, cash, weapons, explosives, and any other contraband. This very technology of the Buster enables it to detect density levels which are the basis of whether or not this suspected object has hidden contraband.

For instance: once the Buster detects an object’s density levels t are higher than usual – let’s say a hollow object such as a spare tire with something stuffed inside it – then the officers are able to conclude that this object is more likely to have hidden contraband.

Since it was introduced during the 80s, the Buster has been responsible for seizing billions of dollars’ worth of narcotics, cash, other illegal substances, weapons, and explosives. It can even detect hidden humans who may be the victims of trafficking. The Buster can be scanned over objects made of different materials such as wood, concrete, metal, reinforced plastic, or even dirt.

By using the Buster, officers are able to scan the entire average-sized vehicle within five minutes, and an average-sized room within 10 minutes.

You can also trust that the Buster is safe. The latest update of the Buster, the Buster K910G, has no lead-based parts and its radioactive source has now been significantly reduced (by 25%).

The Buster density meter can do well on its own, but the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System also makes a great partner. One of the most recent products from CSECO, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has an outstanding feature: its large 5-inch high-resolution color LCD display. It also has a push-button dimming and digital zoom that provides 10 times the resolution compared to other videoscopes.

Just like in the fiberscope, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has a flexible and fuel-resistant articulating shaft which officers can insert into normally inaccessible areas of a vehicle. As they use the shaft, officers can clearly see what’s into the object through viewing it on the large LCD monitor. In this way, they can see what’s inside of the object without losing visibility to their immediate surroundings.

Officers can also trust the safety of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope. It is the first to achieve the UL safety certification, which means it can be used to inspect even in high-risk areas like gas and fuel tanks, as it doesn’t cause dangerous sparks or ignition, nor cause malfunction in the object being inspected.

Police officers use the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit for its performance, efficiency, and safety. It’s a little wonder – it is highly recommended by the majority of local, federal, state, and national law enforcement as contraband detection equipment they can trust.

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.
