"Once a shooting starts you’re on the survival clock. Taking time away from the shooter gives us the best chance of survival, and this is where SDS’ technology can make a tremendous impact."
Rowley, Massachusetts (PRWEB) March 29, 2018
Shooter Detection Systems (SDS), the industry’s leading gunshot detection solutions provider is pleased to announce that former FBI Special Agent Jin Kim, a 23-year veteran of the FBI’s New York Division, has joined the company as Principal Education and Training Consultant on matters related to Active Shooter and Workplace Violence Resiliency Management.
Mr. Kim will bring his decades of knowledge, experience, and passion for education about active shooter survival strategies to a company dedicated to providing lifesaving technology to address the active shooter threat. The Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System, based on the world’s most widely fielded military gunshot detection technology, provides immediate shot detection and location information to building occupants and first responders to save response time, which Mr. Kim calls “the greatest commodity” when it comes to surviving an active shooting event.
“Once a shooting starts you’re on the survival clock,” said Kim. “Taking time away from the shooter gives us the best chance of survival, and this is where SDS’ technology can make a tremendous impact. There is great synergy between what SDS stands for and what I’ve been teaching throughout my career with the FBI. I’m excited for the opportunity to add value to the SDS team.”
Mr. Kim is widely known as a subject matter expert and material practitioner in active shooter and targeted violence attacks. While at the FBI, Kim served as the Active Shooter Coordinator on the Crisis Management Unit and was the leading authority directing active shooter and workplace violence preparedness, resiliency, and training, for the FBI and its corporate and private sector partnerships. In addition, Mr. Kim is a certified ALERRT/FBI Active Shooter Tactical Instructor and has trained a countless number of law enforcement officers in response training.
The Active Shooter remains one of the top security threats facing our schools and workplaces, however SDS CEO Christian Connors states that “many organizations still have yet to develop a comprehensive active shooter plan that is truly proactive, and we want to assist in changing that. Mr. Kim’s message aligns perfectly with our mission to make a difference with lifesaving technology and we are extremely fortunate to have him as a member of our team.”
Customers in Fortune 500 Corporations, Manufacturing Plants, Airports, Sports & Entertainment facilities, and many other complex environments trust SDS’ systems and proven integrations to automate emergency notifications enterprise wide and with zero false alerts – a key differentiator that SDS has over competitors. “Gunshot detection provides a means to get ahead of this rising threat and build a response plan, but it requires technology with proven reliability, and this is what SDS provides” said Kim. “I’m honored to work with SDS to help organizations understand the value that this system can provide.”
