Pilot Program Will Test Gun Detection in Subways

MARCH 28 -- Stations VP Robert Kelley along with MOW Power Division Vice Chair Celeste Kirkland, who leads our Safety Department, attended Mayor Eric Adams’s press conference today at the Fulton Street Station in Manhattan. Adams announced a new-tech scanner to aid in detecting guns and other dangerous weapons people may attempt to carry into our transit system. The technology is said to be smart enough to detect the difference between a gun and a phone. Local 100 was present for the demonstration and will keep members updated for further developments.
