The Utah State Bard of Education has announced additional security measures for public K-12 schools. The state will be implementing ZeroEyes AI-based gun detection platform.
The effort began in the 2023 Utah legislative session and culminated with the passage of House Bill 61, which identified requirements and standards for firearm detection analytics and authorized the Utah State Board of Education to select a qualified vendor.
ZeroEyes' AI gun detection software is layered on existing digital security cameras. If a gun is identified, images are instantly shared with the operations center, staffed 24/7 by specially trained U.S. military and law enforcement veterans. If these experts determine that the threat is valid, they dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence, including visual description, gun type and last known location, to local law enforcement and the school security team following detection.
