As a law enforcement body this asset would a lifesaver in a massive amount of situations and would be welcome in most areas of policing.
The worry is how easy is it to abuse. I don't need to explain the amount of invasiveness this would create. If they are fitted in vans then that means they passed all field tests and in some instances have been in use for x amount of time.
For those of you who want to stop the invasiveness then just paint your walls with new product available to counteract this x-ray machine. The paint is cheap and renders the machine useless. I will try post a link to the manufacturer.
England has known about this for ages and the criminal fraternity know how to counteract it.
On another note how welcome would this be to the 'peeping tom'.

Because high level criminals, the ones with a lot of money, are going to be investing in protecting their vehicles from the X-Rays, using technology that has existed for a long time. Any time there's a change in how things are done, people adapt. It's how people smuggle drugs internationally. An X-Ray van isn't gonna stop #.

What about the people they X-ray. without you r permission you are being X-rayed without proper PPE. This will sterilize men and women if the X-rays are strong enough let alone cause cancer.
