Kenosha USD Chooses ZeroEyes’ AI Weapons Detection Platform
Kenosha Unified School District, the third-largest district in Wisconsin, integrated ZeroEyes’ solution with its IP security cameras.
KENOSHA, Wis. — Kenosha Unified School District has selected ZeroEyes, an AI weapons detection platform, to improve security on its campuses.
KUSD is the third-largest school district in the state of Wisconsin with over 21,000 students and 4,200 staff at 23 elementary schools, five middle schools, five high schools and five charter schools.
ZeroEyes’ solution has been integrated with the district’s IP security cameras to help detect visible weapons and serve as a proactive measure to prevent violent threats on campus. When it positively detects a weapon, the platform sends a notification to school administrators, school resource officers and local 911 dispatch within three to five seconds, according to the company.
The notification ensures schools can enact security protocols while giving first responders real-time information to help prevent active shootings and save lives.
“It’s a grim reality that active shootings happen in schools across the country, and we’ve needed to understand and implement the solutions that can keep our students, staff and visitors safe,” said Kevin Christoun, Maintenance, Environmental and Safety Manager at KUSD. “At KUSD, we have a multilayered security approach that includes the most effective and innovative technologies and resources, and ZeroEyes’ platform clearly supports our strategy.”
ZeroEyes was founded by a group of former Navy SEALs and military veterans. It trains and collaborates with customers and local first responders to conduct extensive pilots before its solution is fully implemented.
“ZeroEyes was founded upon the realization that a proactive solution was needed to help keep people safe, with real-time information to adequately address violent threats and prevent mass shooting tragedies,” said Dustin Brooks, Vice President of Education at ZeroEyes. “KUSD focuses on providing a safe and productive learning environment to its students and faculty, and we’re honored to provide a 24/7 solution that supports their goals.”
