Yes, this might help slow down the introduction of drugs into the prison system. But they are in a union and getting "strip searches" approved as a daily function of their job is VERY unlikely to happen. The inmates that keep them in business are equally to blame.
We would rather promote how an inmate can use their time of incarceration to lift themselves above what got them in there in the first place. Staying in the drug game is a losing proposition. Inmates who recognize that their successful re-entry into society depends on how well they prepare themselves before that day comes, means drugs are off the menu. Education and hope are what we want to see inmates exposed to. Inmates that can have realistic expectations can and will do the hard work and get on the right track - it starts with education.
