The manufacturer of the walk through scanner, Evolv Express, states “It is the fastest weapons-screening system on the market, consistently screening 60 people every minute for firearms and other threats. That’s 3,600 people per hour, or 10X faster than a traditional checkpoint system.”

He observed that many security officers were not pulling aside those with smaller bags or purses, but larger backpacks will probably still need to searched.”

Are you dropping by Disney Springs any time soon? You may have a chance to experience this new scanning system!
