(Sanford, FL) ZeroEyes was invited by Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) and the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office to demonstrate the DeepZeroTM gun detection platform at Oviedo High School on January 13th, 2021.
Over the last three months, ZeroEyes and SCPS have been working together on a pilot program for ZeroEyes gun detection technology at Oviedo High School. This pilot serves as a use case of how ZeroEyes’ gun detection can integrate into existing school security ecosystems and increase the level of security on school campuses. The ZeroEyes solution uses artificial intelligence to proactively and actionably detect active shooter threats.
Going forward, Captain Rick Francis, Director of Security for SCPS, hopes to utilize ZeroEyes gun detection across all schools in the Seminole County School District, as the district has been impressed with the deployment and usability of the technology during the pilot period.

The demonstration consisted of a capability overview of the ZeroEyes platform, a live “real-time” demonstration with a mock active shooter, and a question and answer session with members of the ZeroEyes team. In attendance were the Superintendent of SCPS, Dr. Walt Griffin; Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, Karen Almond; and, Seminole County Sheriff, Dennis Lemma. Representatives from Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Rick Scott’s offices attended, as well as Security decision-makers from surrounding districts, universities, and the Florida Department of Education. The media took statements from Captain Francis, Superintendent Griffin, and Sheriff Lemma. See coverage of the event on Fox35 Orlando, News6 Orlando, and WFTV 9 Orlando.
The demonstration brought together educators, administrators, security decision-makers, and the press to educate all parties on the importance of implementing a proactive and actionable weapon detection technology in order to create safer learning environments and save lives in Floridian schools. ZeroEyes looks forward to more opportunities to share our gun detection technology with school districts around the country on our mission to make communities safer.
