Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) announced that it recently joined forces with the ZeroNow alliance, an organization dedicated to ending harmful events in schools and providing a safe environment for students and staff.
“Our alliance is dedicated to creating the national baseline for safer schools,” said Ara Bagdasarian, CEO and co-founder, ZeroNow, in a statement. “Access to experts in a wide range of safety technologies is essential to achieving this goal. Its decades of experience developing gunshot detection systems designed to work in tandem with other security technologies makes SDS an invaluable addition to ZeroNow.”
“SDS is passionate about bringing our expertise and capability to the critical mission of protecting our schools,” added SDS managing director Rich Onofrio. “Students and school staff deserve the highest performing gunshot detection system available. The team at SDS is committed to making schools safer.”
SDS holds numerous patents on gunshot detection technology and holds the SAFETY Act Certification from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
