Ohio School District to Deploy Patriot One Threat Detection Platform
Implementation of the PATSCAN multisensor threat detection platform will begin at Mt. Healthy City School District by integrator Ginter Electrical.
VANCOUVER, B.C., Canada — Patriot One Technologies (TSX: PAT), based here, announces receipt of a purchase order for its PATSCAN multisensor threat detection platform to be installed at facilities for the Mt. Healthy City School District in Mt. Healthy, Ohio.
The solution will be deployed by Patriot One Technologies’ security system integrator/reseller partner Ginter Electrical of Ohio.
“We’re excited with our growing list of deployments of our PATSCAN platform with schools and universities across the U.S., including our work with education clients and Ginter Electrical,” says Martin Cronin, Patriot One CEO and president. “Through these initial school and university-based deployments, our platform will provide invaluable data and learnings, which will help each future installation and deployment across a vast array of unique environments and venues.”
Cronin continues, “We’re honored to have been selected by Mt. Healthy City Schools to begin deploying our covert threat detection platform which will help create a safer campus and community for their students, parents and staff.”
The PATSCAN platform has been shipped to Ginter Electrical, where they will be joined by Patriot One engineers and Mt. Healthy City School District security and engineering teams to begin testing for deployment of the solution. Specific location of the Platform’s deployment will not be disclosed.
“We’re excited to be part of a solution that will help our K-12 schools become safer across America, and working with Mt. Healthy City Schools, an Ohio public school district, makes this even more special to our team at Ginter Electrical,” says T.J. Dooley, Ginter’s systems integration manager. “No student should have to walk into a school today and feel like they are walking into a fortress. This can create unnecessary anxiety for students who may wonder if their school is safe.”
Mt. Healthy City School District is located in Hamilton County of southwestern Ohio and consists of three small communities: the City of Mt. Healthy and parts of Springfield Township and Colerain Township. The district encompasses comprehensive educational programs that span pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, with college preparatory, advanced placement, college credit, plus gifted programs and vocational opportunities.
“Mt. Healthy City School District is excited and proud to partner with Patriot One and Ginter Electrical for a reasonable assurance of the safety of our students and staff,” says Dr. Reva Cosby, district superintendent. “Safety is the most important thing we can provide our students and staff to ensure student success.”
Following the initial deployment of the PATSCAN platform at one of Mt. Healthy Schools, Patriot One and Ginter Electrical will work to broaden the deployment of the solution with other schools in the district.
