Charles Andrews, security specialist talks about the latest technology that can be used in active shooter situations
Gunshot detection (GSD) technology can help within seconds of a shot fired by automatically locking the doors, identifying the location of the shooter, capturing video of the shooter, identifying the ballistic round discharged, sending out mass communications text/phone calls, and much more. All of this happens within seconds of a shot and simultaneously.
One type of GSD technology by EAGL Technologies, was initially developed by US Department of Energy as a low cost solution for schools. By gathering all this information using Gunshot Detection security technology, those on the premises (pre police arrival) and law-enforcement (post arrival of shooting) are armed with real-time intelligence for the best course of action to move students/personnel to safety and remove the threat with the best realtime information available.
