Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) has joined the ZeroNow alliance of industry, association and education partners working to create and execute a path to “zero harm” and violence prevention in schools.

“Our alliance is dedicated to creating the national baseline for safer schools,” said Ara Bagdasarian, CEO and Co-Founder of ZeroNow.

“Access to experts in a wide range of safety technologies is essential to achieving this goal. Its decades of experience developing gunshot detection systems designed to work in tandem with other security technologies makes SDS an invaluable addition to ZeroNow.”

“SDS is passionate about bringing our expertise and capability to the critical mission of protecting our schools,” said SDS Managing Director Rich Onofrio.

“Students and school staff deserve the highest performing gunshot detection system available. The team at SDS is committed to making schools safer.”
