Knightscope to Donate $500,000 to Secure Schools

Knightscope will donate $500,000 worth of its services to a school that sends the company an essay on how its autonomous security robots could help secure its campus.

Knightscope, a developer of advanced physical security technologies focused on significantly enhancing U.S. security operations, published an open letter today to all students nationwide:

Dear Students,

Thank you for your leadership in helping better secure our nation’s schools. To match other generous gifts, Knightscope will be donating $500,000 worth of its services over a 2-year period to a large campus school anywhere in the United States that sends us a compelling essay on how our autonomous security robots could help in a school setting.

Proposals may be sent on or before April 20, 2018 to me directly at Let’s work together on a solution while the “adults” keep bickering.

Corporate sponsors are strongly encouraged to match us. Knightscope will partner with corporations prepared to make a similar financial contribution and brand the security robots accordingly at additional schools. Help show our kids that their safety is the key to our future.

Chairman and CEO
