If someone fires a gun in Brockton High School, police and school administrators will learn about it in a matter of seconds, the Enterprise reported.

During a Monday afternoon demonstration of a new gunshot detection system installed at the high school, a Brockton police officer fired a handgun in a small auditorium. About five seconds later, an alarm sounded throughout the school, with a computerized voice saying, “Active shooter in Little Theater.” Notifications pinged on police and administrators’ cellphones.

An Albuquerque-based company, EAGL Technology, makes the gunshot detection system, and it can cost $25,000 or more to install in a building, with sensors clocking in at $1,200 each. The cost, said Jennifer Russell, a vice president with the company, is worth it because it alerts police to an active shooter faster than calling 911 and explaining to dispatchers what is happening. Russell said the system can save time, which she believes would save lives, in the event of a school shooting.

STANLEY provides gunshot detection systems that process all gunshot data within the sensor, removing the need for human interpretation or intervention and saving time when seconds matter most. This dual modality provides an incredibly high detection rate with zero false alerts.

“The idea is to take that out of human hands,” said Richard Cogliano, director of business development for CIT Integrated Technologies Inc., the local company that sells and installs the systems on the East Coast.

If someone started firing a gun in a school, he said, people would likely focus on locking the school down and securing students before calling 911. Once they call 911, he said, a dispatcher taking the call might have a hard time understanding what is happening and where – especially if the caller is panicking.

The system is pricey, costing upward of $25,000. But the city got it for free, said Deputy Superintendent Michael Thomas.

This robot fish has robot blood If decades of science fiction movies have taught us anything, it's that when the eventual robot uprising happens, the bots that purge mankind from Earth are going to bleed. Sure, they might spew robo-body-fluid in hues of green or blue, but the dangerous AI-powered robots of the future always seem to have some kind of blood. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Modern robots don’t really have much in the way of blood.

Cogliano is a Brockton High graduate, Thomas said, and the company had been looking for an East Coast school to test out the sensors. The city will not pay any annual subscription fees for at least three years, he said. Its only obligation, Thomas said, was hosting the Monday demonstration, where Cogliano showed off the system for security officials from other institutions.

There are several sensors installed in Brockton High – in the cafeterias, lobbies, gymnasium, auditorium and the Little Theater. The ceiling-mounted sensors run on batteries and can pick up shots within a 100-foot radius.

Police Lt. Frank Vardaro, the head of the school police, said every officer in the city would be notified if an alarm sounded – not just school police, because nearby city officers could help respond. Vardaro said if the alarm went off, signifying a gunshot in the school or on school grounds, police would go in assuming there was an active shooter, not a suicidal person or someone taking hostages.

Thomas said Brockton tries to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to security measures, so he was eager to try the system.

“This is just another tool in the toolbox we could use,” Thomas said. “But you hope you never have to use it.”
