MURRAY, Iowa — The Murray Community School District has selected AI-based gun detection platform ZeroEyes to identify illegally brandished guns on campus and help protect students and faculty against gun-related violence.

Murray Community School district serves 300 students in Murray, Iowa in grades pre-K-12. The district provides an educational environment that challenges the status quo and makes it its mission to clear away any roadblocks that constrain creativity and innovation.

“While we are a small, rural community, if there is anything we have learned it’s that gun-related violence can happen anywhere,” says Tim Kuehl, superintendent of Murray Community School District.

“We are prioritizing the safety and security of our students and faculty, and ZeroEyes ensures that our campus is protected from gun-related threats 24/7,” he says. “We are proud to add this new layer of security to make our community safer.”

Why Murray Community School District Chose ZeroEyes

ZeroEyes’ AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software layers onto existing digital security cameras. If a gun is identified, images are instantly 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 dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence — including visual description, gun type, and last known location — to local law enforcement and school staff as quickly as 3 to 5 seconds from detection.

“Gun-related violence in school communities is far too common,” says Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “Murray Community School District is addressing this problem head-on by adopting our AI gun detection solution. We are grateful to have the opportunity to proactively combat this issue and alert local authorities of a potential threat before it happens.”
