As the country reels from the latest school violence, the ZeroNow alliance is redoubling its efforts to increase campus safety. We exist to enable a higher level of communication and collaboration among the disparate parts of the school safety puzzle. By now it’s clear that the solution does not lie with a single entity, but in a united effort of mental health evaluation, an alert community, threat assessment tools, and emerging technologies that will improve emergency notifications systems and enable faster data transfers between schools and law enforcement. And it doesn’t end there.
What Can Be Done to Increase Campus Safety?
ZeroNow will be attending the Campus Safety Conference 2022 East (CSC 2022 East), June 20-22 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Bethesda, MD. This two-and-a-half-day conference brings together professionals in the fields of campus security, public safety, emergency management, school administration, campus facilities management and IT, as well as technology companies that are working to protect K-12 and higher education campuses and districts.
ZeroNow is participating in the Sponsor Showcase the evening of Monday, June 20, 5:00-7:00 pm and Tuesday, June 21, 7:30 am-3:30 pm. Please stop by the Showcase and learn about ZeroNow and what we’re doing to prevent harm in our schools.
Topics covered at CSC 2022 East will include actionable insights from the Sandy Hook Public Information Officer, “Secondary Traumatic Stress for Educators and Law Enforcement,” building an active shooter response architecture and suicide prevention. If you can’t make the CSC 2022 East event, register for CSC 2022 Texas, July 18-20 in Ft. Worth, or CSC 2022 West, August 2-4 in Los Angeles.
ZeroNow was founded by technology partners Additional, Axis Communications, Johnson Controls, Omnilert and Telos Corporation, along with campus safety nonprofit partners the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), NASPA (the Association of Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education), Campus Safety Magazine, and VTV Family Outreach Foundation.
