Leon County Schools Adopts ZeroEyes' Proactive Gun Detection Solution

PHILADELPHIA – ZeroEyes has announced the deployment of its proactive gun detection solution with Leon County Schools of Tallahassee, Fla., across five high school campuses.

The company’s AI-based gun detection solution has been added to Leon County Schools’ multi-layered security plan in response to rising gun-related violence in schools, with the K-12 School Shooting Database reporting more than 240 incidents to date in 2023. In response the district has been a champion of school safety and security, manning a 24-hour security center and working hand-in-hand with the Leon County Sheriff's Office for more than 40 years as part of its School Resource Program.

“We are grateful that technology like ZeroEyes exists in today’s climate,” said Jimmy Williams, chief of safety and security staff for Leon County Schools. “It provides a proactive layer of security that complements our overarching comprehensive security plan. Knowing that ZeroEyes’ technology is on campus helps reduce anxiety for staff, students and parents, providing assurance that potential gun-related threats may be mitigated before first shots are even fired.”

ZeroEyes noted that Leon County Schools is headquartered in Tallahassee, Fla., and is the sole school district of the county. Its stated mission is to support an engaging, safe and respectful learning environment that embraces change and produces successful learners who value diversity and are conscientious contributors to society.

ZeroEyes' AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software is being layered on existing digital security cameras at the five high schools as a pilot project. “Leon County Schools has demonstrated it is at the forefront of school security innovation in Florida and is doing everything in its power to keep its students, faculty and staff safe,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “We are proud that they have added ZeroEyes to their comprehensive security plan to help mitigate gun-related violence.”
