ZeroEyes Partners with Texas Education Service Center

ZeroEyes, creators of the only AI-based gun detection video analytics platform that holds the US Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act Designation, today announced a strategic partnership with Texas’ Region 13 Education Service Center, which serves as a liaison between the Texas Education Agency and the local school districts. ZeroEyes is now a vendor under the Center’s cooperative contract, a master service agreement that facilitates the tech acquisition process for Region 13 school districts in Texas. ZeroEyes executives will be available to meet at the 2024 TASA Midwinter Conference, taking place January 28-31 at the Austin Convention Center.

Through the partnership, schools affiliated with Region 13 will have access to pre-negotiated, discounted contracts for ZeroEyes’ technology. By leveraging the cooperative purchasing agreement, schools can avoid the expense and administrative burden of conducting their own RFP (request for proposal) process. ZeroEyes also announced that it has earned TX-RAMP (Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program) Level 2 certification for government cloud operations, indicating that the company can now operate with confidential/regulated data in moderate or high-impact systems.

“We are excited to boost our commitment to protecting the great state of Texas against gun-related violence,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “The TX-RAMP Level 2 certification confirms that our cloud solution is fully secure for government deployment, and our partnership with Region 13 will provide an efficient and cost-effective process for Texas schools to adopt our technology.”

ZeroEyes' AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software layers over existing digital security cameras. 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 local law enforcement and staff in as fast as 3 to 5 seconds from detection.
