Metro Nashville Public Schools Approves Contract to Add Gun Detective Software to Schools


Metro Nashville Public School Board has approved a contract to add weapon detection features to their schools’ security cameras.

MNPS commination director Sean Braisted said the district has been working with a security camera provider, System Integrations, Inc., over the past few months to learn about the best products that would provide a brandished weapon detection feature to the schools.

On February 28, 2023, the Board approved a contract with the vendor to add the Omnilert gun detection feature to more than 1,300 existing security camera systems throughout the district.

The contract includes the onboarding and setup, AI detection software, hardware for servers, and a monitoring service for human review of alerts flagged through the AI software.
