Rowley, Massachusetts - June 27, 2017 - Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) announced today that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has Certified the company's Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System under the SAFETY Act (Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology). This certification is the highest level of protection offered by DHS.
