ZeroEyes has announced that the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing, Michigan, has deployed the company’s AI-based gun detection solution to protect government officials and visitors from gun-related violence.
ZeroEyes says that its AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software will be layered on the Capitol’s existing digital security cameras.
If the gun detection system is triggered, images will instantly be shared with the ZeroEyes Operations Center (ZOC), staffed 24/7/365 by specially trained US military and law enforcement veterans.
If the experts determine that the threat is valid, they will dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence, including visual description, gun type and last known location, to internal security teams and the local police force in as fast as three to five seconds from detection.
“As the political climate grows increasingly tumultuous, it’s imperative that we remain vigilant and attuned to our surroundings,” said Rob Blackshaw, Executive Director of the Michigan State Capitol Commission.
“I want visitors and those that come to work here every day to understand that, irrespective of external circumstances, our building remains a secure haven and ZeroEyes plays a pivotal role in ensuring that safety.
“The accuracy of its technology and proficiency of its staff are truly exceptional.”
“We are currently witnessing an alarming surge in political violence and the Michigan State Capitol’s dedication to ensuring the safety of its staff and the community is commendable,” stated Mike Lahiff, CEO and Co-Founder of ZeroEyes.
“ZeroEyes takes pride in being selected to help ensure safety in this important and historical building.”
