Who needs to be stopped for a search if a Police Officer can scan you from the comfort of his car?
â€œThis technology has shown a great deal of promise as a way of detecting weapons without a physical search,â€ said New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly during his State of the NYPD address on Tuesday.
The gun scanning technology will help lessen the need for NYPDâ€™s use of Stop and Frisk procedures that allowed officers to stop New Yorkers for random street interrogations or searches. In 2011, about 600,000-plus New Yorkers were stopped.
