Keeping Correctional Facilities Safe

Detect Illegal Drugs and Contraband – without Opening the Mail

Increasingly, personal and legal mail is being used to smuggle hard to detect illegal drugs and contraband, particularly drug-laced papers, suboxone strips, and small quantities of powders and liquids into the inmate population.

Significant man-hours are devoted to mail screening, yet harmful substances continue to be missed. The problem is pervasive, straining limited correctional staff and resources, harming officers, and contributing to inmate violence, overdose, and death.

MailSecur Desktop Scanner Enhanced to Detect Drug-Laced Papers

RaySecur Solution:

Real-time, Accurate Detection

The MailSecur desktop scanners display real-time video of the contents concealed inside envelopes, parcels, magazines, books, and other types of packaging. Unlike X-ray machines that only produce 2D, static images, and use harmful radiation, MailSecur uses safe T-rays allowing the operator to freely manipulate the object to obtain alternate views in 3D. 

MailSecur’s real-time, dynamic imaging allows existing staff to quickly become proficient in detecting contraband without the need for extensive training and special certification or safety precautions required for X-ray.

Simple, Real-Time Detection of Treated Paper

Untreated paper displays as green, while laced paper will present as
yellow or red depending upon the level of saturation.

Correctional facilities are struggling to stem the flow of drugs into prisons and jails, particularly papers soaked with drugs and other harmful substances. 

When dried, the drug-laced papers can be undetectable to humans, making the papers an ideal substrate for smuggling. 

When paper is treated with drugs, it changes the way the paper interacts with the T-rays, which enables the MailSecur® scanner to detect the anomaly – without anyone having to open the mail.
