Westminster Group announces that it has been appointed as the exclusive UK distributor of the B.O.S.S. (Body Orifice Security Scanner) chairs, which are used in some of the toughest jails and prisons in America to detect unwanted metallic contraband objects hidden within the body cavities of detainees and inmates.
The units are already installed within a number of UK prisons and correctional facilities and are expected to be rolled out to other prisons and custody suites throughout the UK.
Westminster has been appointed as the exclusive distributor and supplier of the B.O.S.S. units in an agreement covering both supply and ongoing maintenance of all units within the UK.
Commenting on the contract award Peter Fowler, Chief Executive of Westminster Group, said:
"I am delighted we have secured exclusive distributorship of these advanced scanners which when installed in prisons and similar establishments will significantly enhance security.
"Westminster already supplies the HM Prison Service, the Ministry of Justice and various Police Forces with a range of security solutions and the B.O.S.S. scanner is an excellent addition to our range.
"With around 140 UK prisons and numerous custody suites within UK Police Stations there is significant potential for both sales and maintenance revenue relating to these units."
