Smarter Technology For Safer Communities

For every city, organization and citizen around the world, one thing is very clear: the threat of domestic terrorism and an active shooter incident is very real.

Public terrorist attacks like Paris or San Bernardino, public infrastructure attacks like the lesser known “Metcalf Electrical Substation Sniper Attack” in San Jose, and the 161 school shootings that have occurred since 2013 all serve as violent reminders of how important it is to maintain public safety.

Technology plays a major role in helping detect and manage these threats. Selecting the right public safety technology is critical, but has never been more difficult due to rapid technology advances through innovation, new lessons learned from real life incidents and being able to properly assess your security risks in an era of dynamic and evolving security threats.

2015 Active Shooter Incidents. “It is important, too, that training & exercises include not only an understanding of the threats faced but also the risks & Options available in shooter incidents.” – U.S. Department of Justice/FBI, A Study of Active Shooter Incidents in the US between 2000 & 2013.
