Detecting Security Threats and Contraband in Prisons - Bidders Briefing
The presence of contraband and illegal items in prison is a major issue that has been regularly highlighted in the media.
In response, the Ministry of Justice is seeking projects that can demonstrate innovative ways of detecting at least one of the following:
- mobile phones and SIM cards, including phones with very low metal content
- illegal substances, particularly in very small quantities
- other contraband, including tobacco, alcohol, weapons and explosives
Projects must aim to detect contraband in one or more of a number of circumstances including on people, concealed inside the body, in bags, in buildings, at entry and exit points, in vehicles, and in open areas.
