Shooter Detection Systems Joins Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS)

Shooter Detection Systems will participate in PASS’s School Security Town Hall, happening April 11 at ISC West.

Shooter Detection Systems (SDS), an company and gunshot detection solutions provider, has joined forces with the Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) to support its mission and advocate for critical school safety efforts, according to a press release.

As part of its commitment to PASS, Shooter Detection Systems says it will promote the PASS guidelines for layered school safety and security among school administrators and public safety professionals. PASS guidelines provide school districts with vetted best practices for security technology, staff training, community involvement, and crisis preparation planning.

As a gunshot detection provider to schools and creator of the SecureGrants program to help schools fund critical safety technology, Shooter Detection Systems says it shares PASS’ deep commitment to securing K-12 learning environments. By joining PASS, SDS says it expands its ability to inform administrators about technology-enabled safety options and provide guidance that helps school officials make the most effective safety decisions for their communities.

“We look forward to working with PASS and contributing our technology expertise to help expand their guidelines and recommendations over time,” said Rich Onofrio, Chief Technology Officer of Shooter Detection Systems. “We have always believed that gunshot detection should be part of a comprehensive, layered security strategy. We are excited to work with the PASS technical committee to understand the proven benefits of gunshot detection and how the technology is a perfect fit for future additions of the PASS guidelines.”
