Pop Concerts

Pop Concerts

Pop concerts represent a microcosm of the population who set out with one goal; to enjoy themselves. Regrettably, these types of major events often attract people with a different goal; to sell and to distribute drugs or narcotics.

Checking for Traces

Where intelligence information suggests that drugs or narcotics might be on site, people and their belongings can be checked for traces of drugs quickly and easily. Personal property can be swabbed to determine if any drug traces are present, and this includes items like mobile phones, cameras and hand baggage. Alternatively, a detection system that detects the volatile vapours of narcotics such as methamphetamine can be readily used to make a quick check for the presence of drugs in bags, pockets and clothing.

The Bruker RoadRunner

The Bruker RoadRunner is a hand-held, battery-operated portable device that can be used both to check for explosives in a vapour mode, or can be used in trace detection mode using the swab that is rubbed on the personal property of the chosen visitor. Traffic light symbols are used on the display to indicate what has been discovered in the process. Green means nothing has been detected, but red means the presence of an illicit material has been discovered. Text associated with the discovery shows the name of the drug that has been discovered and the necessary action can then be taken with the specific visitor.

The Bruker DE-tector

The Bruker DE-tector is a combined drugs and explosives trace detector that is simple and quick to use. A reusable swab is rubbed on the personal property of visitors, and this swab is inserted into the detector device. The system then informs the operator by means of a traffic light system whether or not an illicit substance has been found. Green means nothing has been detected, but red means the presence of an illicit material has been discovered. Text associated with the discovery shows the name of the drug that has been discovered and the necessary action can then be taken with the specific visitor.
