The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians has installed Evolv Technology weapons detection systems at all four of its Four Winds Casinos.
Evolv Express systems are installed at each of the northern Indiana casino’s entrances. The equipment allows for patrons to be scanned without having to stop and empty pockets or have bags checked, except when requested by a security guard. Guards may also ask to see identification to verify age.
Weapons have always been prohibited at Four Winds Casinos, the Pokagon Band said in a release. Partnering with the Massachusetts-based security technology company, the Pokagon Band said, will help ensure none make it in with a system that uses artificial intelligence to screen up to 3600 people an hour.
“The health and safety of our guests and team members has always been our top priority, and this proven technology from Evolv will allow us to provide a higher level of screening and security, without impacting the experience of our guests,” Four Winds COO Frank Freedman said.
