ZeroEyes deploys in school district, state capitol, discusses future plans

PHILADELPHIA – ZeroEyes has announced that New Jersey’s Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District has implemented its AI-based gun detection solution across all its campuses to protect faculty and students against gun-related incidents.

ZeroEyes revealed that Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District is New Jersey’s largest school district, by area, and operates three comprehensive high schools: Absegami, Cedar Creek and Oakcrest. It serves students from six townships - Egg Harbor City, Galloway, Green Bank, Port Republic, Hamilton and Mullica - and is considered very diverse, ranging from rural areas still active with farming to suburban neighborhoods, and apartment complexes.

“Our board considers the safety of students, faculty and staff to be our number one priority, and ZeroEyes is a critical addition to our security technologies,” said James Reina, superintendent of Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District. “AI, in combination with the 24-hour ZeroEyes Operations Center, is always monitoring our camera feeds for possible images of weapons, which removes the need for someone to be solely focused on the security cameras every time there are people in the building. We consider relationship building between our security guards, armed SROs and students to be critical to security, because if the kids know and trust us, they’ll tell us if anybody is threatening to bring a gun to school. If an SRO is locked in a room all day watching cameras, they’re not creating relationships with the community.”

“There have already been more than 240 school shootings in 2023 alone, and this disturbing trend is not slowing down,” noted Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District understands this threat and is determined to protect its staff, students and visitors against gun-related violence. We are proud that our proactive solution has been chosen to complement and bolster the district’s multi-layered security approach.”

As with other deployments, ZeroEyes' AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software will be layered on existing digital security cameras at the three high schools. ZeroEyes also recently announced that the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing, Michigan, has deployed their solution to protect government officials and visitors from gun-related violence, which is ZeroEyes’ first implementation within a state capitol building.

"As the political climate grows increasingly tumultuous, it's imperative that we remain vigilant and attuned to our surroundings," said Rob Blackshaw, executive director of the Michigan State Capitol Commission. "I want visitors and those that come to work here every day to understand that, irrespective of external circumstances, our building remains a secure haven, and ZeroEyes plays a pivotal role in ensuring that safety. The accuracy of its technology and proficiency of its staff are truly exceptional."

After an exceptional year filled with new deployments and growth for the company, Security Systems News (SSN) reached out to ZeroEyes to inquire about the plans the company has moving forward into 2024. “In 2023, we made significant strides to proactively address gun-related violence, with new deployments in schools, government buildings, hospitals, public transit, casinos, places of worship and more,” said ZeroEyes co-founder Sam Alaimo. “We were proud to lay the groundwork for a new research center and formal partnership program, and in 2024, we plan to utilize these initiatives to educate the public on the growing crisis.  We will also forge partnerships with like-minded security companies and reselling partners who can help evangelize about the power of proactive life-saving technologies. Our mission is and always will be to create a safer and more secure future for all.”
