While teaching in the classroom for 24 years at Cleburne ISD, Jackie Beatty said parents never had to worry about sending their children to school. That is not the case nowadays, she said.
She is encouraging local school districts, churches, law enforcement agencies and businesses to purchase the Safe Zone Gunfire Protection technology, which uses cloud-based machine learning to detect gunfire in a building.
Active shooter incidents are becoming an all too common occurrence. Unfortunately, they occur in places where people gather and where the shooter believes he can get the most attention. This means schools, churches, restaurants and bars are all likely venues.
As one of the most important new technologies debuted at CES 2019 by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News, Safe Zone announced it will exhibit and showcase its Safe Zone Gunfire Detector (GFD) at ISC West 2019 (April 10-12, 2019) at Booth #4117 in the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This active shooter security system can be easily installed in virtually any type of public environment. The system responds within 10 seconds to an active shooter situation, analyzing the on-the-ground situation and automatically communicating with all key personnel, saving time and ultimately, saving lives.
Imperial Surveillance, Inc. is a full service security company using facial recognition, sound detection technology, and sophisticated ID access badges for employees or students to use. In a worst case scenario, if a shooting occurs, the phone will know the exact weapon used and a map will immediately appear detailing where not to run while the suspect is being tracked. NBC 5’s Art Norman and Charlie Wojciechowski have the details.

Florida-based startup Safe Zone has launched the Safe Zone Gunfire Detector, an affordable gunfire detection system that has the ability to respond to an active shooter situation within 10 seconds.
Utilizing the data from multiple detectors simultaneously, the Safe Zone Gunfire Detector determines the location of shots fired, the number of shots, and the type and caliber of gun being used. Within ten seconds of the trigger pull, an alert is sent to Public Safety Access Points in the appropriate dispatch center, giving local 911 dispatchers all the critical information right on their computer. The Safe Zone Gunfire Detector is a small – less than 3” x 3” – triangular unit that mounts in a ceiling corner and provides gunfire detection for an area of up to 9,000 ft3.
