Agency: Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs
National Institute of Justice has recently developed updated versions of its minimum performance standards for walk-through metal detectors and hand-held metal detectors. In order to ensure that the test methods in the standards are properly documented, NIJ is requesting proposals (including price quotes) for test method validation efforts from testing laboratories. NIJ is also seeking the participation of metal detector manufacturers in this effort to ensure that the test methods are valid and reasonable for metal detectors in the market today. Additional information for these efforts may be found through the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center's Web site by following the link below: https://www.justnet.org/ standards/Metal_Detectors.html.
