RaySecur, a security imaging technology company with the world’s first DHS Safety Act-designated millimetre wave (mmWave) desktop scanner, for mail and package threat detection, announced that former Boston Police Commissioner, Ed Davis has joined the company’s Advisory Board.
Ed Davis will leverage his decades of law enforcement experience, in order to help RaySecur accelerate adoption of its flagship MailSecur mail and package threat detection solutions.
MailSecur scanners use safe mmWaves to see inside of objects. They can detect more and smaller threats than X-ray scanners, including explosives, weapons, radiation, and other suspicious contents, as well as liquids and powders at 300x the sensitivity of X-rays. Unlike X-ray scanners, there are no safety concerns or need for specialised training.
Mail threat incidents have been increasing, with the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), responding to an average of more than 10 dangerous mail or package incidents each day, for the last three years. In the last 16 months, AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine plant, Subway Sandwiches’ corporate headquarters, and Dr. Anthony Fauci have all been victims of dangerous mail threats.
Mail and package threat detection
Mail and package threat detection is an underestimated and vitally important component of public safety"
Ed Davis stated, “Mail and package threat detection is an underestimated and vitally important component of public safety, and I’m excited to join the Advisory Board of a company that offers the only safe and scalable solution for organisations and individuals, to combat this problem.”
He adds, “It’s crucial that law enforcement, enterprises, correctional facilities and government institutions have access to this technology, and ensure they can seamlessly scan every package, in a quick and efficient manner. I look forward to working with RaySecur, to help meet this important security need.”

Ed Davis is the latest addition to a world-class team comprising technology, military, security and law enforcement professionals. He has a 35-year proven track record and is the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of business strategy and security services firm, Edward Davis Company.
