Description:

The first Body Orifice Security Scanner (BOSS) chair was introduced by the Irish Prison Service in early 2008 on a pilot basis as part of a wide range of security initiatives introduced to combat the smuggling of contraband into our prisons. Since then seven additional chairs have been installed bringing the total to eight and it is proposed to introduce them in all closed prisons during the course of this year, subject to the availability of resources.
