Random, unannounced metal detector screenings at New York City middle schools and high schools.
Students at New York City middle schools and high schools might be required 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 and 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 new safety initiative by the New York City Police Department (NYPD).
