Phone detector at mock prison riot

Monday, 12 July, 2010

Berkeley Varitronics showcased its latest Bloodhound cell detector at the West Virginia mock prison riot that was held in the grounds of the decommissioned West Virginia Penitentiary in West Virginia.

With its ability to detect and find hidden contraband mobile phones in either standby mode or being actively used for voice, text or other data transmissions, Bloodhound has already passed a number of real-world trials in working prisons.

It enables security professionals to enforce their no-wireless policies without specially trained K9 units or illegal cellular jamming devices.

As a wireless, handheld device, the Bloodhound is a safe, non-jamming, quick means to monitor and pinpoint unauthorised mobile phones within correctional facilities 24 hours a day.
