California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) will be receiving 272 CellsensePLUS cell phone and contraband detection systems over the next eight weeks. These units, which are being provided by Metrasens, in conjunction with Global Tel*Link (GTL), will help detect prison contraband, namely cell phones, blades, razors and other items.

CellsensePLUS from Metrasens is the most durable, versatile and effective tool in the industry for finding cell phones, weapons and contraband. While the system has an unsurpassed record of finding cell phones, on or off, outside or inside the body, it's also capable of finding even the smallest contraband items, including shanks, razor blades, paper clips and staples. Whether freestanding or wall-mounted, CellsensePLUS is effective for screening inmates, staff, visitors, vendors, mattresses, mail, laundry and inmate belongings in virtually any part of a correctional facility.
