ETOWAH CO, AL –
Stopping contraband before it gets in the jail.
The Etowah County Sheriff’s Office is using the Intercept Scanner, a new state-of-the-art, full-body contraband detection system.
The scanner was installed November 6 in the jail’s booking area where inmates are first processed.
In addition to detecting metal like a standard scanner, the Intercept Scanner can find other types of contraband, like phones, illegal or prescription drugs.
