A safer world; a better worship experience

Temples, churches, mosques, synagogues and other houses of worship are safe spaces for prayer, comfort and enriching experiences that people deserve. However, these religious sanctuaries are faced with the challenges of adapting to changing health and safety guidelines in a way that is viable for them while also continuing to inspire trust and confidence in their congregation and visitors.

Introducing Evolv Express®

Traditional security screening was not designed for today's dynamic threats. At Evolv Technology, we’re partnering with religious institutions to provide the next generation of security screening that’s highly accurate, and yet unobtrusive, to ensure congregants and visitors feel safe and welcome. Evolv Express® is the world’s first AI-based weapons detection screening solution, transforming physical security screening into human safety by enhancing the visitor experience while continuing to improve security.

Using Grant Funding to Create Safer Experiences for Houses of Worship

The current political and social climate in the US and abroad has played a role in creating an environment that may put Houses of Worship and religious institutions at risk for potential violence.

The Federal Government has acknowledged this risk and allocates funds through the Nonprofit Security Grant Program to help offset the cost to these groups and institutions looking to improve their security. Download the documents to learn more and to apply.
