A new high-tech body scanner at the Jefferson County jail has been so successful at helping keep out contraband that officials want to purchase another one for a different jail facility downtown.
The Courier-Journal reports the scanner has found a myriad of things — drugs, cell phones, lighters — and has resulted in an almost 50 percent increase in contraband seizures.
Jail Director Mark Bolton says the $250,000 item "has been a real boon to us" because it has increased security at the institution and made it safer for staff.
