–Partnership announced on eve of National Sheriff’s Association Education & Technology Expo in Louisville to help law enforcement and first responders secure needed products without using funds from strained budgets–

Stafford, TX and Barnwell, SC – June 14, 2019 – DetectaChem Inc. has formally announced its partnership with the Government Training Institute (GTI) and participation in GTI’s Asset Trading Program in advance of the June 15 to 18 National Sheriff’s Association Education & Technology Expo in Louisville. The program allows all Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies to trade in unused or old equipment for new products and technologies such as DetectaChem’s drug and explosive detection products.

The Government Training Institute created the Asset Trading Programto benefit underfunded law enforcement agencies by utilizing their forfeited-seized assets and surplus equipment to provide funds for drug and explosive detection test kits, Department of Homeland Security training courses, specialty and patrol vehicles, firearms and more. Items available to trade include unused drug and explosive test kits, surplus vehicles, ammo, weapons and other confiscated items. The unique Asset Trading Program exists to provide needed products to ensure officer and community safety without using money from strained budgets.

DetectaChem is the premier provider of drug and explosive detection technologies for the Asset Trading Program.

  • DetectaChem’s MobileDetect app and drug testing pouches are a popular replacement for old-fashioned legacy field drug tests. The Multi Drug Test can detect residue and trace amounts of Fentanyl, Heroin, Cocaine, Meth, MDMA/Ecstasy and more in a single low-cost pouch. The free MobileDetect app is used to scan the test pouch and provides automated detection results, picture-taking capabilities, GPS mapping and more.
  • For bomb squads and SWAT teams, the SEEKERe handheld explosive detector can be acquired. The SEEKERe can detect trace amounts of military grade explosives, HME materials, precursors and more.


DetectaChem will be providing demonstrations of MobileDetect and SEEKERe at booth 912 in the exhibit hall at the National Sheriff’s Association Education & Technology Expo.
