Faulty metal detectors at L.A. County jail put deputies at risk, sheriff's officials say

May 13, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Of seven scanners at the facility in downtown Los Angeles, which houses about 4,000 inmates, many aren't operational, the jail's chief says. But an agency spokesman says security hasn't been compromised.

Aging metal detectors at Los Angeles County's Men's Central Jail frequently break down, posing safety concerns for deputies who routinely confiscate weapons that inmates make from scrap metal, sheriff's officials said.
