PHILADELPHIA – ZeroEyes, the creator of the only A.I.-based gun detection video analytics platform with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s SAFETY Act Designation, has announced that its platform is being introduced to the Klamath Falls City School district in Oregon to provide proactive protection.

The district is utilizing the solution against potential gun violence by layering it on top of the schools existing security camera system. There it can identify brandished guns and dispatch alerts to law enforcement and safety personnel in as short a time as three to five seconds from detection.

“My top priority is the security of our students and faculty, which is why our district is one of Oregon’s foremost school safety leaders,” said Keith Brown, superintendent of Klamath Falls City Schools. “From the moment I witnessed ZeroEyes’ innovative security solution in action, I knew it would be a game changer for our community. With ZeroEyes, we can preemptively protect our schools and respond quickly in the event of a gun-related emergency. Together, we can ensure that our schools are a safe place to learn, grow and thrive."

Founded by a group of former Navy SEALS and technologists, ZeroEyes used hundreds of thousands of proprietary images and videos in training its AI to be among the most superior and comprehensive gun detection technologies on the market. Information is verified at the in-house ZeroEyes Operation Center (ZOC) according to the company where it then delivers “accurate and actionable” intelligence on gun-related incidents, including the gunman's appearance, clothing, weapon, and real-time location. ZOC can also de-escalate police response by informing law enforcement if the weapon detected is an AirSoft, BB or other type of non-lethal gun, ZeroEyes said.

“The recent increase in gun-related violence nationwide has made it critical for schools to have a robust security plan in place,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “Klamath Falls City Schools has taken a proactive approach to ensuring the safety of students and staff by implementing a multi-layered security strategy, including ZeroEyes technology. We are honored to be a part of this effort and look forward to working closely with the district to keep their schools safe and secure."

ZeroEyes has stated that its AI has been trained to detect only guns, and does not perform any facial recognition. As such, there’s no risk of bias based on skin color and other personal characteristics. In addition the system doesn’t receive, record, store, or share personal and biometric data.

ZeroEyes has been deployed across several industries in over 30 states, including K-12 school districts. Gun violence in schools has already left its mark in the U.S. for 2023, when in early January, a six-year-old shot his teacher in Newport News, Va. It is one of six so far this year that includes injuries or death according to a tracker maintained by Education Week
