Iowa’s East Union Community School District to deploy ZeroEyes

PHILADELPHIA – ZeroEyes is securing more educational facilities with the reveal that its solution has been chosen by Iowa’s East Union Community School District to protect students and faculty against gun-related threats.

As a result of rising gun violence in the United States, East Union Community School District is adding ZeroEyes’ artificial intelligence (AI) gun detection to detect illegally brandished firearms on campus. “In this day and age, no school is immune to gun-related violence, whether they’re rural or urban,” said Tim Kuehl, superintendent of East Union Community School District. “Considering the rising shooting rates across the country, we are taking no chances. It is our priority to protect our community and ZeroEyes offers an added layer of security to identify potential threats before it’s too late.”

East Union is a rural district in Afton, Iowa serving 500 students in grades pre-K-12. The district strives to provide a challenging curriculum within a safe environment where students achieve their maximum academic and social potential

"It is disheartening to see school communities be plagued by senseless violence each and every day,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “But there are steps schools can take to proactively secure their campuses. We are grateful to provide an additional layer of protection for the students and staff in the East Union and Murray Community School Districts.”
