Rethinking Student Safety
Caleb Jones, one of the founders of ZeroEyes said, “It’s hard to be in an environment to focus and learn when you’re scared.” As a result of this realization, ZeroEyes was formed. The founders of this company are former Navy SEALs. After coming back from service, Caleb and his team were still seeking a way to contribute to society. This desire to protect people lead them to start ZeroEyes. Recently Caleb was featured in his home town’s paper, Citizen Tribune talking about his commitment to student safety.

A Band Of Brothers Dedicated To Student Safety
They wanted to take on a big challenge in the world where their skills and experience were most valuable. “We shifted all of our focus to solving that problem,” Caleb said. “That problem” he’s talking about is the rise of school shootings in America.
“For those of us who served in the military, being veterans means we take protecting people very seriously too…”
Jones believes that it’s equally important to remember that safety and security professionals need better protection. Currently there are so few products on the market that give situational awareness to first responders or on-site security professionals. This needs to change if we’re going to actually provide student safety solutions.
Technology Is Only The Beginning
“As a result, we use Artificial Intelligence to actively monitor camera feeds to detect weapons. In fact, our technology can decrease response time which could save lives. The veterans on this team recognize the need for increased safety in civilian life. Finally, we know it’s our duty to provide whatever we can to the public to increase a general feeling of safety.”
That’s the commitment coming from ZeroEyes. These veterans are doing all they can to continue protecting their country. Student safety is in their sights, and schools are beginning to recognize the benefit of gun detection technology.
