“The SentryHound Cell Phone Detection Portal is fast becoming the solution to correctional and custodial facilities in South Africa to counter and to detect cellular telephones being smuggled into facilities where they are prohibited,” says Mark Whitehead, Technical Manager of CellDetect™ from Centurion, Gauteng.
The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services stated during July 2015 that 98,413 communication devices have been found in the South African prison facilities in the past five years. The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called for action by the Department of Correctional Services (DCS).

“A solution,” says Mark Whitehead “is the SentryHound.” The SentryHound introduced by CellDetect™ in South Africa in 2014 is placed at the entrances and doors of correctional facilities. Wardens, inmates, visitors and other people who need to access the facility have to walk through the SentryHound portal and stand for one second on the pressure sensitive mat. The SentryHound immediately detects any hidden cellular telephones or parts on the individual, whether the phone is on or off. It will also detect the cellular telephone when the battery is removed.
According to Mark Whitehead: “The SentryHound recently detected a cell phone in the stomach of a prisoner at a Western Cape correctional facility.”
The SentryHound differs from expensive and obtrusive walk-through metal detectors because it only targets cellular phones found in pockets, backpacks, purses, etc. while ignoring common metallic items like pocket change, belt buckles and keys that trigger normal metal detectors. This makes for streamlined security scans focusing on illegal or unauthorized cell phones being transported through security checkpoints. The SentryHound is portable and simple enough to be transported anywhere and assembled and operational in minutes.

CellDetect™ specializes exclusively in providing a complete strategy, equipment and solutions to correctional and custodial facilities to counter the threat of cellular telephones and other communication devices.
