U.S. Embassy commissions security X-ray full body scanners to increase prison security in Panama
Panama’s Ministry of Government and the U.S. Embassy in Panama dedicated two new high technology ADANI CONPASS DV X-ray full body scanners at La Nueva Joya prison facilities. This screening equipment aims to prevent drugs, weapons, mobile phones, and other forbidden items from entering prison facilities.
With this contribution, the U.S. Government expresses its continuing commitment to increase law enforcement capabilities and develop an effective security cooperation strategy with the Republic of Panama. The scanners represent the first specific outcome of the Memorandum of Understanding between INL and the Ministry of Government, signed in September, to prevent and fight organized crime.
