Download this Police1 body scanners buying guide to learn key steps for product selection, purchasing and implementation


When law enforcement personnel are tasked with the safety of a building or other enclosed area – be it a jail, a courthouse, or an event venue – a key component to effective security is a body scanner.

The right body scanner can make a significant contribution to enhanced safety and security. The initial investment can easily pay for itself by stopping just one incident that could lead to loss of life or significant injury, as well as cost an agency millions of dollars, time in federal court and bad press.

Because a body scanner is a big purchase for any agency, due diligence must be taken in specifying its capabilities, selecting the vendor that best meets these requirements, and installing/maintaining the scanner properly.
