PHILADELPHIA – ZeroEyes has announced that its gun detection and intelligent situational awareness solution has been deployed by Michigan’s Pontiac School District (PSD).

PSD includes nine schools in total. In addition to adding ZeroEyes, the district hosts a multi-layered approach that includes a visitor check-in system, smart sensors, and video management software, among others, to provide a safe and secure educational environment.

“At Pontiac, we've dedicated significant resources to fostering opportunities for students, and we've witnessed the positive impact rippling throughout our community,” said Dr. Kimberly Leverette, Interim Superintendent of Pontiac School District. “Our mission is to cultivate our schools as safe havens, and with ZeroEyes, we are able to enhance security and safety both during and after school hours.”

ZeroEyes' AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software layers onto existing digital security cameras. If a gun is identified, images are instantly shared with the ZeroEyes Operations Center (ZOC). If ZOC experts determine that the threat is valid, they dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence — including visual description, gun type, and last known location — to local law enforcement and PSD staff as quickly as 3 to 5 seconds from detection.

“In the past few years, the state of Michigan has experienced great hardship when it comes to gun-related violence,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO of ZeroEyes. “Pontiac School District continues to show its dedication to safety and eye for innovation with its deployment of ZeroEyes.”
