City of Detroit Combats Gun Violence with Evolv Technology

Detroit Auto Show latest city event to be secured by advanced weapons detection screening technology

Evolv Technology, the leader in AI-based weapons detection security screening, announced the company will work with the Detroit Police Department (DPD) to secure the upcoming Detroit Auto Show taking place from September 14 – 25 at Huntington Place in Detroit, MI. The DPD began employing Evolv Express systems around the city this past summer to provide an additional layer of safety and comfort among residents.

“This technology acts as a force multiplier for the DPD, as the systems now allow us to reallocate some officers from security screening to other areas in need.”

Built with powerful sensor technology and artificial intelligence, Evolv Express instantly distinguishes weapons from personal items, enabling people to walk through security without breaking stride or emptying pockets or bags and allowing security professionals to better focus on addressing possible threats. The advanced weapons detection system screens approximately 4,000 people per hour, operating 10x faster than a metal detector while identifying the precise location of a potential weapon.

The DPD has been using Evolv Express outdoor dual-lane units at nightclubs in the city’s Greektown restaurant and nightlife district as well as major events, including the Movement Music Festival, Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, and the 64th annual Ford Fireworks which drew over 100,000 attendees and resulted in zero-gun violence at the July celebration.

“Evolv has aided our officers in enhancing security at large events and special details,” said Detroit Police Department Chief James White. “This technology acts as a force multiplier for the DPD, as the systems now allow us to reallocate some officers from security screening to other areas in need.”

“Our mission is to make the world safer for people to work, learn, live and play,” said Peter George, CEO and President of Evolv Technology. “Our work with the City of Detroit is an excellent example of how we collaborate with local law enforcement to help create weapons-free zones that allow residents to feel comfortable in the spaces they gather.”

Evolv Express was selected as part of the City’s 2022 Community Policing Strategy with the objective of supplementing the intelligence-driven community policing strategy with the most proven and advanced policing technologies available on the market. The Detroit Auto Show is expected to draw over 800,000 visitors over the course of the two-week event.
