Photo Journal: Guarding Poland's border
Hi-tech equipment

We have already acquired a lot of new equipment in the last couple of years.

All lorries now have to pass through a machine that takes an X-ray image of their cargo.

We also have mini video cameras to peer into small spaces, CO2 meters to reveal concealed people, and sniffer dogs to detect drugs, weapons and explosives.

Patrols have night-vision goggles, Land Rovers and motorcycles, though there are some places they can only reach on foot.
