Handheld metal detectors are designed to detect suspect items that contain metallic components, such as weapons or illicit contraband. Responders use these metal detectors at access control checkpoints to conduct security screening of individuals.
The Handheld Metal Detectors Market Survey Report (2007) is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
