Garrett Metal Detectors Releases CSI PRO-POINTER
GARLAND, Texas — Garrett Metal Detectors, which has manufactured hand-held, walkthrough and ground-search metal detectors for the security industry for 25 years, has introduced a new tool for crime scene investigation. The Garrett CSI PRO-POINTER hand-held pinpointing metal detector can precisely and rapidly pinpoint buried and hidden metallic objects, weapons and evidence.
“The CSI PRO-POINTER, used in conjunction with an effective ground-search metal detector such as Garrett’s CSI 250, is a cost effective solution to speed the recovery of metallic evidence in crime scene investigations,” stated Vaughan Garrett, Vice-President of Public Relations for Garrett Metal Detectors.
This light-weight metal detector, conveniently carried in its supplied belt holster, features continuous audible and vibrating alarms which increase in intensity based on the CSI PRO-POINTER’s proximity to the metallic target.“The CSI PRO-POINTER is durable, water-resistant and even includes an LED flashlight to assist during low light searches,” added Garrett. “It was primarily designed as an accessory ground search recovery tool that will serve as a companion to our popular CSI 250 metal detector.”
The CSI PRO-POINTER has a pinpointing tip and 360-degree side-scanning capability. Its scraping blade allows the user to rake through the soil while digging a target. “As the CSI PRO-POINTER is moved closer to a piece of metallic evidence, it vibrates faster and its audible alarm increases,” Garrett stated. “Garrett Metal Detectors has a long and successful history of supplying law enforcement with affordable tools which benefit crime scene investigations. We are therefore pleased to now offer this important companion detector to complete the crime scene specialist’s arsenal.”
The Garrett CSI PRO-POINTER has an MSRP of $169.95. Garrett metal detectors are made in America in the company’s Garland, Texas, home office facilities and manufacturing plant.
