→How to detect contraband
Another strategy to use in order to control contraband is to hire some [[Dog Handler]]s with [[Guard Dog]]s to sniff out any smelly contraband your prisoners may be hiding. They may be used to patrol critical areas of your prison, e.g. the exits of rooms containing narcotics, but like Metal Detectors will only find metallic items, guard dogs won't find anything that doesn't smell.
[[Guard]]s will find any contraband if they actively search the prisoner carrying it or his contraband hiding places in his cell. They may also search the items possibly used to smuggle contraband (e.g. kitchen ingredients). This may be done manually by the player, automatically through [[Policy]] upon any misconduct of the prisoner, or for a whole prison at once using the [[Shakedown]] Emergency Action to clean up the whole prison. However, doing this will piss off your prisoners, so use it sparingly.
