TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Patriot One Technologies (TSX: PAT) (OTCQX: PTOTF) (FRA: 0PL) (“Patriot One” or the “Company”) today announced it will protect entrances to schools for the Lakewood, N.J. school district. The company’s SmartGateway entry screening solution will be used to ensure weapons are not brought into schools throughout the Lakewood Township district.
A recent report found that as many as 3% of high school students said that they carried a weapon onto school property. And while this study reports these numbers are declining, Lakewood Schools wants to make certain this number is zero.
“After sending security experts to trade shows to evaluate options and performing an aggressive analysis of various technology solutions, and rigorous onsite testing, we were impressed with the versatility and consistency of Patriot One’s solution,” said Robert DeSimone, director of security at the Lakewood Board of Education. “The SmartGateway can be easily moved to different areas of our facilities, depending on events we are holding, and can be integrated easily with future technology systems and upgrades in Lakewood Schools.”
Patriot One’s SmartGateway entry screening solution uses artificial intelligence (AI)-powered sensors to scan for hidden guns, knives and other weapons on people as they walk through pillars, without requiring personal items to be removed. This significantly speeds up entry and offers a more accurate detection rate than traditional security measures, making schools safer.
“Lakewood Schools has already put efforts into protecting its students and staff, and the SmartGateway will help elevate that safety to a new level,” said Peter Evans, CEO of Patriot One. “Students were already accustomed to using walk-through metal detectors – our technology will let them enter the school much faster, while providing advanced security detection. This lets students just be students again –they shouldn’t have to worry about weapons on campus while they’re trying to learn.”
