“It creates a security risk among other inmates,” he said. “You have to deal with the fact of drugs inside your facility.”
Also, Crittenden said the sheriff’s department has looked at getting new technology to use at booking.
“We’ve looked at several routes, there are several various kinds of body scanners out there, we’ve looked at some of that as a possibility in the future,” he said. “Right now, it’s up in the air with what we can and can’t do. Some of it has to do with legal issues, some financial. So, we are in the very beginning stages of considering that.”
