Baton Rouge Law Enforcement and Criminal JusticeFoundation a Driving Force Behind Solutions That Address Violent Crime

Page/Rice Public Safety Initiative Launches ZeroEyes AI-based Gun Detection Software

and Becomes Influential Hub for Investments In Software and Technology

BATON ROUGE, La. – The Baton Rouge Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice (LECJ)

Foundation today announced the successful integration and launch of ZeroEyes AI gun

detection and intelligent situational awareness software onto existing digital cameras in Baton

Rouge. If a gun is identified, images are instantly shared with the ZeroEyes Operations Center

(ZOC), staffed 24/7/365 by specially trained U.S. military and law enforcement veterans. If these

experts determine that the threat is valid, they dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence –

including visual description, gun type, and last known location – to local law enforcement and

staff as quickly as 3 to 5 seconds from detection.

ZeroEyes software is a contribution to the Baton Rouge community through the Page/Rice

Public Safety Initiative, an initiative of the LECJ Foundation named in honor of Devin Page, Jr. and Allie Rice who lost their lives to senseless gun violence. Quickly becoming an influential hub for investments in innovative technology and software supporting law enforcement in efforts to deter violent crime, the initiative also continues to partner with the business community to increase the number of security cameras and license plate readers (LPRs) in strategic parts of the city.

“Public safety should not solely be the responsibility of our law enforcement partners. The entire community has ownership in public safety, and we proudly accept a leadership role in acting toward a safer Baton Rouge. The Page/Rice Public Safety Initiative will continue to be the impetus behind innovative solutions that invest in our law enforcement partners and neighbors.” -Clay Young, chairman of the LECJ Foundation Board of Directors.

The LECJ Foundation plans to expand ZeroEyes locations throughout Baton Rouge after its

initial introduction to the community. ZeroEyes, founded by US Navy SEALS, Special

Operations military veterans, and elite technologists, says they are living out their ongoing

mission to protect and serve our country.

The LECJ Foundation’s mission promotes public safety, uplifts local law enforcement agencies, and builds trust between the public and law enforcement. In addition to the Page/Rice Public Safety Initiative, the Foundation is preparing to begin construction of the Inspiration Center at Howell Park this summer. The Inspiration Center, a collaboration between the Foundation and the Girls and Boys Club of Metro Louisiana, is a comprehensive, state of the art facility serving children, youth, and families in the surrounding area.

SafeBR, a coalition of Baton Rouge business and organization leaders who are dedicated to

improving public safety, proudly endorses the LECJ Foundation and its impactful efforts.
