HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday, the jail is now equipped with a full-body scanning system.

The x-ray scanner, installed recently, is designed to detect drugs, liquids, metals and plastics.

Officials say the new scanner is a safer and more effective way to find out if an inmate is trying to smuggle unauthorized items into the jail.

A similar body scan system has also been installed at the Community Corrections Work Release building.
