End

PREVIOUS BOARD/BOARD COMMITTEE ACTIONS:
The Board approves fixed asset purchases as necessary throughout the year.

SUMMARY OF REQUEST:
The Sheriff's Office does not have a body scanner that can detect and intercept dangerous substances such as Fentanyl, heroin, and methamphetamine concealed by inmates in their body cavities. The Mendocino County Jail has not been able to fit a body scanner due to the dimensions of those on the market. With advances in technology, there is now body scanning equipment that can be accommodated in our facility. By using the Tek84 Intercept Whole Body Scanner to intercept narcotics, Corrections will have a better chance of avoiding bad outcomes, such as severe injury or death of inmates and staff, due to narcotic overdose or exposure.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION/MOTION:
Return to staff for alternative handling.
