WHY: In 2022, the K-12 School Shooting Database recorded 304 gun-related incidents on US campuses, the most in recorded history. There have already been more than 170 school shootings in 2023, and parents, faculty and students are increasingly concerned about their safety.

Implementing proactive security measures such as ZeroEyes’ AI gun detection and situational awareness solution can help mitigate gun-related violence by reducing response times, providing actionable intelligence on the shooter’s location, weapon and appearances, and delivering clarity among chaos.
