The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi’s Four Wind Casinos in Michigan has worked with Evolv Technology for touchless weapons detection screening.
Four Winds Casinos has always had a strict no weapons policy and Evolv’s artificial intelligence-based system, Evolv Express, will help ensure guest and team member safety without the need for guests to individually complete traditional weapons screening methods.
“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,” said Frank Freedman, Chief Operating Officer of Four Winds Casinos.
Evolv’s systems have been used to screen more than 60 million people in the US, second only to the Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Evolv Express is 10 times faster than traditional metal detectors, resulting in screening an unparalleled 3,600 people per hour, per system. The world’s most iconic venues and companies place their trust in Evolv to protect their employees and visitors, including Uber, Lincoln Center, L.L. Bean, Six Flags, and hundreds of others.
The first of the new screening system is currently in place at each guest entrance of Four Winds Casino South Bend. Guests will not have to stop, empty their pockets, or have their bags checked unless directed by security. Guests may still be asked to provide identification to show they are 21 years or older.
