Company establishes exclusive status as sole gunshot detection technology provider certified by agency for anti-terrorism tech

Rowley, Massachusetts – June 27, 2017 – Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) announced today that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has Certified the company’s Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System under the SAFETY Act (Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology). This certification is the highest level of protection offered by DHS. The SAFETY Act, legislated by Congress as part of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, was passed to incentivize manufacturers and sellers of anti-terrorism technologies to continue developing and commercializing technologies that could save lives without being deterred by potential liability risks.

True to its reputation as the world leader in gunshot detection technology, this honor sets SDS apart as the only gunshot detection solution certified under the SAFETY Act and included on the “Approved Products List for Homeland Security.” The Guardian System, installed nationwide as well as overseas, continues to prove itself as the industry’s most effective solution for accurately detecting and reporting gunshots. The system provides immediate and precise location information to first responders in under one second with a proven history of zero false alerts.

The SAFETY Act Certification protects SDS customers from legal liability claims arising from Acts of Terrorism and designates the Guardian System a “Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology.” The SDS Designation and Certification is effective through June 30, 2022.
