The State Secretariat of Public Security (SSP) will reinforce control and surveillance at the main points of entry, with the implementation of state-of-the-art X-ray equipment, which will allow to visualize the interior of any vehicle that crosses the stateline through the checkpoints.
Based on information provided by the SSP, with this type of equipment, which is adapted to a mobile vehicle, officers can observe and detect prohibited objects or substances such as narcotics, weapons, large amounts of cash, hidden persons or even blood stains that could involve motorists in a crime.
The X-ray system is similar to those installed at airports to check the contents of suitcases or boxes, without having to physically inspect the luggage.
In this regard, the head of the K-9 Unit of the SSP, Commander Edrick García Guerrero, informed that the equipment was delivered to the corporation on Monday April 15th. The SSP will test it at the security control post near Hacienda Teya, on the exit of the Mérida- Cancun highway.
At this checkpoint, agents of the Federal Police, the Special Operations Group in Reaction and Assault (Goera) converge, as well as the Special Operations Group (Geo) of the SSP.
It is planned to use this type of technology in other checkpoints such as the exits to Campeche and Motul.
He said that the equipment is manufactured in the United States, and was brought to Yucatan with the aim of testing and checking its functionality in daily practice, to determine the possibility of acquiring a number of units in the near future.
According to Commander García Guerrero, the supplier is a Mexican company that imports equipment from the US. He stated that the X-Ray equipment has the capacity to scan cars, trucks, passenger buses or even double-trailer trucks almost 50 meters long.
“The huge advantage that this type of equipment provides, is that you can create a timeline like in a design program, where you can scan the passing vehicles one by one, point A to point B, and you have the option of zooming in, to take a closer look at any detected object, see it in detail and even change the contrast to observe it more carefully, “he explained.
García Guerrero added that given the operational effectiveness provided by this piece of equipment, it is widely used in customs offices, airports, private security agencies, among others.
