New York's mayor is a proponent of deploying a 'weapons detection' solution for the city's subways, but Patriot One's CEO has expressed serious concerns in an interview with IPVM about the feasibility of such a massive undertaking.
Mayor Eric Adams' April 18th press conference confirmed that NYC is considering three separate 'weapons detection' systems for its subways, with the goal being to "get it right" with "fool proof" technology.
But Patriot One CEO Peter Evans said the staffing and logistical challenges are critical considerations. He added that the NYC subway rider's experience would include a "logistical nightmare" of delays and missed trains, and would "radically change" if a system were deployed in the current subway environment.
