What is PatronScan?

PatronScan is an ID scanning technology used by nightclubs across North America. We offer several benefits to club owners, such as the ability to spot fake IDs and keep minors out, add patrons to a Banned Patron List, and spot patrons who have caused trouble at other venues.

As we have received requests for assistance from several police departments, PatronScan now offers public safety police officers access to 3 services, helping police prevent violence, sexual assault, drug trafficking, and gang violence in nightclubs. Please read a brief explanation of the 3 services we offer to law enforcement: Public Safety Link, POI (Persons of Interest), and Nightlife Pulse.


Public Safety Link

Find Suspects, Victims, and Witnesses

PatronScan provides police officers with a public safety link into the PatronScan system. This allows police officers responding to an incident at a nightclub venue to advance their investigation rapidly, solving more cases quicker.

Investigation process aided by Public Safety Link

PatronScan collects identifying information about patrons entering nightclubs, and stores it in our secure database. Upon launching an investigation, a police officer can contact PatronScan and request specific information be made available to them through the public safety link.

E.g. Request information for XS Nightclub patrons entering between 11:00pm July 3rd and 1:30am July 4th.

The information is then made available to the officer in the PatronScan Public Safety Link, allowing them to view live shots captured from a high definition camera of each patron entering the venue, along with a copy of the image from their identification. Police can tag patrons to request more detailed information. This allows police officers to quickly identify potential suspects, victims, and witnesses. Using these images, a photo line-up can be created on the spot to be used for suspect identification.

Request Pricing

Quickly scan through the patrons entering the venue. Tag the patrons to create a photo line up instantly.


“ID Scanners have changed the way we do business in Edmonton and have also been crucial for deterring nightlife violence and various incidents that are common within the industry. I highly recommend everyone taking a look at a system with a connected network like this.

They have several features, but the scan history on their online web portal is a great investigative tool. This helps with an investigation as we have a ton of data on the patrons that night and can provide that extra bit of evidence to charge someone.
