Penncrest Expands ZeroEyes’ Gun Detection Solution to All Schools
Penncrest Superintendent Dr. Timothy S. Glasspool says the technology has been proven to improve response time dramatically.
SAEGERTOWN, Penn. — ZeroEyes, an A.I. gun detection software solution provider, announces its solution will be deployed across all campuses within the Penncrest School District in Crawford County, Penn., marking an expansion of the district’s original Feb. 2022 deployment from three to six schools.
“The Uvalde shooting raised the concerns of many parents in our district, especially because we are a geographically large school district in a rural part of Pennsylvania where improving law enforcement response time is critical,” said Penncrest Superintendent Dr. Timothy S. Glasspool. “ZeroEyes has been proven to improve response time dramatically, which is crucial for saving lives in active shooter situations. We consider their proactive technology to be an indispensable part of our layered security solution, and furthermore, their professionalism, expertise and efficiency have been second to none.”
ZeroEyes was founded by a group of former Navy SEAL team leaders that used hundreds of thousands of proprietary images and videos to train its A.I.
Layered on top of a school’s existing IP security cameras, ZeroEyes’ proprietary software identifies brandished guns and alerts school administrators, safety personnel, and local law enforcement within three to five seconds.
Former U.S. military and law enforcement specialists monitor each detection 24/7/365 from the in-house ZeroEyes Operations Center (ZOC) to deliver actionable intelligence on active shooter incidents, including the shooter’s appearance, clothing, weapon, and real-time location.
Furthermore, ZeroEyes’ A.I. does not record, store, or share videos or images of students or others, ensuring that privacy is maintained.
“School districts like Penncrest are not just our customers; they are our partners in making the world a safer and better place to live,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “Penncrest is proof that a school can be ‘rural’ while still being on the cutting edge of security technology. We applaud Superintendent Glasspool and the other district decision-makers for their commitment to protecting students and faculty proactively against gun-related violence.”
