References for NaRQ in operation

NaRQ was launched in 2011 and is currently in operation in a number of places, including:

Gardemoen International Airport

Oslo, Norway

Gardemoen is Norway’s main airport and serves more than 18 million passengers every year. It is located outside of the Norwegian capital Oslo and close to a long and mostly unmonitored land border with Sweden, making it a possible gateway into the European Union.

Customs officials at Gardemoen approached Danfo for help with the increased problem of drug swallowing. The first NaRQ unit was installed at the airport in 2010. It has been in frequent use since then and the results have been very positive.

Customs officials report that narcotics handling is simpler and more reliable, suspect handling is better and that their working environment and conditions have been improved.
