How U.S. Border Patrol can detect radioactive materials

Sean Morris is a border patrol agent and works as a small scale non-intrusive instructor with the Houlton sector. He says every primary check point is required to have a personal radiation detector.

“Depending on how many milligrams it produces it will give you an alert and tell you to either conduct an investigation and figure it out or to clear the area and set up and have someone else come in that’s more highly trained than I am to do that.”
