Woodbine Community School District deploys ZeroEyes AI gun detection

PHILADELPHIA – ZeroEyes, creators of a proactive Artificial Intelligence (AI) gun detection and intelligent situational awareness platform, announced that it has been selected by the Woodbine Community School District in Woodbine, Iowa, to protect students, faculty and staff from individuals attempting to bring illegal guns onto the campus.

With school shooting rates continuing to surge in the U.S., Woodbine Community School District, a rural pre-K-12 public school district that operates two schools and serves 500+ students, has chosen to adopt the ZeroEyes platform to address these growing safety concerns. 

“We are dedicated to enhancing school safety, so that our teachers can focus on education and students can concentrate on learning,” said Justin Wagner, superintendent, Woodbine Community Schools. “Choosing ZeroEyes means instant verification, validation and communication to local law enforcement of anyone wishing to harm students or staff with a gun. Their outstanding team and 24/7/365 in-house operations center provide us with the utmost confidence that we are providing the most advanced notification system available. This is an important step in a series of proactive mitigation and safety precautions we are taking to keep students and staff safe.”

In the event a gun is detected on campus, the software will instantly send images to the ZeroEyes Operation Center (ZOC), which is staffed by specially trained U.S. military and law enforcement veterans, 24/7/365. Those experts verify the threat and dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence, including visual description, gun type and last known location, to local Woodbine staff and first responders in as fast as 3 to 5 seconds from detection.

"We're proud to see Woodbine Community Schools adopt our AI gun detection technology,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder, ZeroEyes. “We see it as our duty to help create a safer learning environment for children. We hope to see a day where schools are free from violence, ensuring students, parents, and staff can live without fear of gun-related threats.”
