Police Chief Magazine review of Hero911™
A new social network is using the latest mobile technology to provide an increased level of protection during school shootings as they unfold. The Hero911 Network is a voluntary, nonprofit group of federal, state, and local law enforcement officers nationally dedicated to reducing response times to active school shooting incidents. The launch of the group’s Hero911 app is designed to increase the number of officers, on or off duty, who can respond to these tragic school crimes. Any of the nearly 900,000 active U.S. federal, state, or local law enforcement officers can download the Hero911 app for free on their iOS and Android smartphones. The Hero911 app will work in concert with the Hero911 Network’s new companion app for teachers and school staff called SchoolGuard.
