Curry County Detention Center Body Scanner

The Curry County Adult Detention Center’s Administrator, Mark Gallegos is proud to announce the new addition to their security operations with the addition of a new Advanced Body Scanner. This new addition to our security operations will aid in reducing, minimizing, and eliminating dangerous contraband entering in the detention center. Detention Administrator Gallegos stated that “this additional technology will assist in advanced security screening and searches with detainees upon the booking process which will aid in identifying contraband on detainees and or staff members at any time of suspected contraband”. “This process of scanning a detainee and or staff will take approximately 7 seconds which will render immediate results. As a result to the new advanced security device, Curry County is the third county detention center in the State of New Mexico to implement this security technology”.

Administrator Mark Gallegos stated that “staff are currently being trained with this new security addition and most of all, staff are excited to have a security device in place to assist in contraband control”. Detention Administrator Gallegos and staff would like to thank the Curry County Manager, Lance Pyle and the Curry County Commissioners for the support with the implementation of this new Advanced Body Scanner.
