AI-based weapons detection security screening provider, Evolv Technology, has announced its partnership with New Mexico’s Clovis Municipal Schools. According to the company, the school system will use its Evolv Express screening solution at its schools.
The company says its Express solution uses powerful sensor technology with AI to provide safer, more accurate threat detection at unprecedented volume and speed. Clovis Schools will screen students, staff and visitors as they enter.
“With gun violence on the rise nationwide, we felt we needed to take a proactive step to keep our students and staff safer,” said Loran Hill, Senior Director of Operations for Clovis Municipal Schools. “Evolv gives us the security we need and since it can tell the difference between threats and most of the everyday items people bring into school, our students’ routines won’t change when they come to school, keeping anxiety levels low and the focus on education.”
Clovis Municipal Schools has two Express systems. In addition to the indoor system that will be used at schools, they have another outdoor one that can be used to help secure school and community events.
“One of the guiding principles for Clovis High School is that all site decisions are based on the academic, social and emotional needs of the students as well as their physical safety,” said Neil Sandhoff, Evolv’s Vice President of Education.
“In that way Clovis is an ideal partner for Evolv. We hear from schools we work with that Evolv allows for peace of mind and a sense of security for a school community, allowing for students to have the best atmosphere in which they can succeed.”
