Illinois School District Deploys AI Gun Detection, Intelligent Situational Awareness

Mount Pulaski Community Unified School District 23 adopts proactive ZeroEyes solution to protect against gun-related violence.

PHILADELPHIA — Mount Pulaski Community Unified School District 23 of Logan County, Ill., has adopted ZeroEyes‘ proactive gun detection and intelligent situational awareness solution at Mount Pulaski High School and Mount Pulaski Grade School.

The district is located in Mount Pulaski, a Midwest farm town, and also serves the cities of Chestnut, Cornland, Elkhart and Lake Fork. It educates more than 500 students annually and staffs approximately 100 employees.

Mount Pulaski CUSD #23 follows the I Love U Guys Foundation Standard Response Protocol (SRP) as a guideline for crisis response and has added ZeroEyes to its multilayered range of security measures implemented to defend against gun-related violence.

“In our close-knit town, we are committed to taking every possible measure to ensure that our citizens are safe,” says Fred Lamkey, superintendent of Mount Pulaski CUSD #23. “The deployment of ZeroEyes, along with our other security measures, should give students, staff, and administration peace of mind throughout the school year.”

Why Mount Pulaski School District Chose ZeroEyes

ZeroEyes’ AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software is now layered on existing digital security cameras at both of Mount Pulaski’s school campuses. If a gun is identified, images will instantly be shared with the ZeroEyes Operations Center (ZOC), staffed 24/7/365 by specially trained U.S. military and law enforcement veterans.

If these experts determine that the threat is valid, they will dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence, including visual description, gun type, and last known location, to the community police department and school resource officer in as fast as 3 to 5 seconds from detection.

“Mount Pulaski CUSD #23’s forward-thinking approach to ensure the safety of its students and staff is truly admirable,” says Mike Lahiff, CEO, and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “By deploying ZeroEyes’ technology, the district has showcased a dedication to creating a secure yet welcoming learning environment.”
