ZeroEyes, Stonemont Security Applaud Iowa, Kansas and Missouri State Legislatures for Passing School Security Funding Bills

ZeroEyes, the creators of the only AI-based gun detection video analytics platform that holds the US Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act Designation, and Stonemont Security Solutions, a leading provider of security systems and services, today congratulated Iowa, Kansas and Missouri state legislatures for passing landmark school safety and security funding bills in recent weeks. The companies have partnered to help schools evaluate and improve their overall security approach, with white-glove services tailored to their specific needs and expert integration of ZeroEyes’ leading AI gun detection software.

ZeroEyes offers the most comprehensive AI gun detection solution on the market, and Stonemont Security brings extensive expertise in serving Midwest clients, with its office location in Kansas City and close contacts with local police departments and school administration in Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas. Together, the companies will assist schools in utilizing their awarded grant funding to conduct security and threat assessments and deploy ZeroEyes’ technology to identify visible, illegally brandished guns on school property.

“Our threat assessments help ensure that school funds are allocated toward security solutions that matter,” said Thaddeus Debolt, President of Stonemont Security Solutions. “ZeroEyes’ solution enables customers to pivot from a reactive security approach to proactive. We are proud to include ZeroEyes in our security offerings and use our connections in the region to help schools add this life-saving technology to their multi-layered security plans.”

Stonemont Security provides comprehensive security services and solutions. From initial consultation to routine maintenance, Stonemont Security creates a safe and secure environment for schools, hospitals, banks, commercial buildings and more. The company also offers adaptive camera systems with 24/7 recording and access control systems that are fully customizable to fit any entry method and number of doors.

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.

"Stonemont Security takes a white-glove approach to everything that they do, and together, we are powerful force multipliers," said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. "With the new state grants, we are excited to help Midwestern schools enhance their security measures and protect their communities from senseless violence."
