Cellsense®, the prison contraband detector, announces endorsement by the National Sheriffs’ Association

PRWeb – August 22, 2014 - Cellsense, the leading cell phone contraband detector for prisons, is proud to announce its endorsement by the National Sheriffs’ Association.  Only seven other organizations have received this highest level of support from the National Sheriffs’ Association.

Sheriffs and law enforcement professionals are dedicated to public safety including safety in prisons and jails.  Inmates smuggle contraband cell phones to conduct illicit activities including intimidating witnesses, organizing crimes and plotting escapes from behind bars.  “Cellsense detects weapons and all cell phones, even phones that are switched off or concealed in a body cavity” according to Dr. Simon Goodyear, CEO for Metrasens, maker of Cellsense. 

Goodyear says, “Cellsense is honored to be endorsed by the National Sheriffs’ Association in their mission to support law enforcement professionals.  Sheriff Aaron Kennard, Executive Director of the National Sheriffs’ Association adds, “The endorsement of Cellsense by the National Sheriffs’ Association reflects our shared goals of enhancing safety for law enforcement professionals and the general public.”
