The City may require students at public middle schools and high schools to pass through metal scanning devices similar to those used to screen airline passengers.

These scanning devices detect weapons and dangerous instruments such as:

  • Firearms
  • Knives
  • Box cutters

The scanners will be temporarily installed in schools throughout the City without prior announcement.

The use of these mobile scanning devices is part of a safety initiative by the New York City Police Department (NYPD).
