Secure campuses with gunshot detection analytics

Secure campuses with gunshot detection analytics
With the increase in active shooter incidents in schools and colleges, several unique security solutions are being considered to make campuses safer. One among them that has received much attention in the market is audio analytic software, especially for gunshot and aggression detection that can be matched with video footage. 

According to Louroe Electronics, a company which recently released such a solution for campus security, the software detects most firearms including handguns, shotguns, rifles, and automatic rifles. Within seconds of a gunshot, it accurately identifies the sound and sends out an immediate notification to police and first responders through the video management system or any another source. 

Richard Brent, CEO of Louroe Electronics said that his company is seeing an increase in inquiries for their solution and expect it to continue in 2016. 

“According to the FBI’s ‘Active Shooter Events from 2000 to 2012’ study, which reviewed 51 incidents, the median police response time was 3 minutes,” Brent said. “This is pretty fast, but a lot of damage can still be inflicted in that time. In fact, 60 percent of incidents end before police arrive, according to the FBI’s ‘A Study of Active Shooter Incidents in the United States Between 2000 and 2013.’”  

He added that in precarious situations where seconds matter, the gunshot detection technology can shorten response time. First responders need as much accurate information as they can get to analyze the situation and respond appropriately.
