ACA Preview – See you in New Orleans
In two weeks, the industry will gather in New Orleans for ACA’s 152nd Congress of Correction – August 5-7 in New Orleans.
Last year at this time, when we gathered in Nashville, the pandemic was waning and lives began returning to a sense of normalcy. However, as corrections professions, we know nothing is “normal” about daily operational challenges facilities are facing.
In addition to staff quarantine exacerbating shortages, increasing populations combined with pandemic-related restrictions and new regulations require a complete rethink of the screening process for both inmates and visitors.
Recognizing that preventing contraband smuggling isn’t just about safety – it’s about liability and the health of inmates, staff, and visitors – more facilities are migrating towards contactless screening systems that are powered by advanced body scanner technologies. The raging opioid epidemic has driven individuals and criminal organizations to continue innovating ways to smuggle contraband. In addition, the liability from one overdose and wrongful death lawsuit far outweigh the costs of implementing a comprehensive body scanning program. To that end, we are excited to introduce a new, compact body scanner – HT3000SV – which makes advanced screening and detection capabilities available to facilities of all sizes and budgets.
We are excited to welcome you in New Orleans. Visit STVS in booth #1115 to learn more and discuss with our corrections professionals.
