ZeroEyes has announced that its proactive gun detection and intelligent situational awareness solution has been deployed by Germantown Academy (GA) in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania to protect students, staff and visitors from gun-related violence.
“Germantown Academy has an expansive campus that provides students with a diverse range of learning opportunities, both in and outside of the classroom,” said Greg Keenan, Director of Security at Germantown Academy.
“ZeroEyes has the unique ability to seamlessly work alongside our various security resources while providing an extra layer of assurance through human-verified alerts on any brandished guns on campus.
“Their overall commitment to the safety of our students grants us an additional sense of security without compromising the GA experience.”
ZeroEyes highlights that its AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software is now layered on existing digital security cameras at GA.
If a gun is identified, 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 these experts determine that the threat is valid, they will dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence, including visual description, gun type and last known location, to the security team and community police department in as fast as three to five seconds from detection.
“Germantown Academy’s educational and safety reputation impressed me so much that I sent my own daughters there,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and Co-Founder of ZeroEyes.
“It is extremely gratifying to know that our solution is now part of the school’s extensive security toolkit.”
