Body Scanner 12/6/19 Ci 6a

The Santa Cruz county sheriff’s office is implementing a new tool to help eliminate contraband at the Santa Cruz County jail.

Jail officials say they received the new scanner following a report by the grand jury earlier this year that called for tighter security at the jail… the scanner came at the cost of 175-thousand dollars. Next up for the jail: a drug sniffing dog.
