New Technology To Catch Drug Mules
MELBOURNE : The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service has begun a trial of body scanning technology to detect internal drug concealments.
“This is a smarter, faster, way to catch drug mules,” Minister for Home Affairs Jason Clare said on Thursday.
“Instead of taking people suspected of concealing drugs to the hospital, this technology can confirm this on the spot.
“It saves the time and resources of Australian Federal Police and local hospitals.
“About half of the heroin and cocaine detected at our airports is internally concealed,” Clare said in a statement.
