Twenty-seven police officers of the Hellenic Police were trained in operating ONEX SA’s high-end innovative heartbeat detectors

On Friday, August 24, 2018 ONEX SA’s specialized personnel conducted a training session on the operation and technical support of heartbeat detection devices at the premises of the Center for Security Studies of the Ministry of Interiors (KEMEA). The training was attended by 27 police officers of the Hellenic Police.

The trainees are officers serving in the country’s Passport Control Departments, carrying out border control tasks, as well as police technicians from the Technical Department of the Hellenic Police Headquarters, who will assume the operation and technical support of the devices.

The Hellenic Police have been equipped by ONEX SA with twenty five (25) heartbeat detectors, allotted to the Police Departments of Orestiada, Alexandroupolis, Rodopi, Serres, Kavala, Drama, Xanthi, Thesprotia, Kilkis, Pella, Kastoria, Florina and Ioannina.

The system has the ability to detect human presence hidden in specially transformed areas (caches) in vehicles of various types, such as trucks, buses, etc. and will enhance the operational readiness and response in border control services. By using data from special sensors, the system detects shock waves produced by heartbeats that are transmitted to any surface or object that touches the human body.

This pioneering solution, first presented in Greece by ONEX SA and the ITC Division of the company, assists the Hellenic Police to successfully carry out their duties against illegal immigration and perform effectively to the border surveillance of Greece.
