Former Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis Joins Shooter Detection Systems
ROWLEY, Mass. — Shooter Detection Systems LLC (SDS) is pleased to announce that former Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis has joined the company, bringing his decades of knowledge, experience, and innovation to an organization that is providing lifesaving technology to address the active shooter threat.
Davis will serve as Business Development and Strategic Planning Advisor for SDS.
“When you think of law enforcement leaders in not only New England but across the country, the name Ed Davis instantly springs to mind. He is synonymous with policing and progressive law enforcement, and he is a true and proven leader,” said Christian Connors, Chief Executive Officer of SDS. “We are very fortunate to have his wisdom and guidance at Shooter Detection Systems.”
Davis served as Boston Police Commissioner from 2006-2013. Prior to that, he was the Superintendent in Chief of the Lowell Police Department in Lowell, Mass. During his first five years as Chief in Lowell, the violent crime rate fell faster than in any other American city of at least 100,000 people.
Davis also led the Boston Police Department during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.
“Shooter Detection Systems is an extremely innovative company with excellent technology behind it,” Davis said. “The Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System gives law enforcement officials invaluable intelligence, and it gives innocent people inside a building that is under siege a chance to survive. I am very excited to be a part of things at SDS.”
Drawing upon the same concepts and necessities that brought automated fire alarms to public schools in the 1940s, Guardian’s well-researched system uses a state-of-the art acoustic and infrared sensor combination to instantly detect the location of a gunshot inside of a building and immediately alert police and building occupants.
The Guardian System is scalable from a single room to a large school, to a massive commercial or industrial complex and has been adopted by corporations, schools, airports and government facilities.
