The Safer Schools Initiative
Powered by ROC.ai
A pilot program to improve proactive security capabilities in one of our nation’s most vulnerable spaces.
ROC.ai teams have been working closely with more than 50 schools in four West Virginia districts to integrate our advanced computer vision software with existing school-based camera systems.
ROC Watch enables school administrators to automatically:
Screen visitors before they enter the premises
Detect incidents or intruders
Configure smart alerts for any device
Count or locate missing children during an incident

This program is currently in a pilot phase, operating solely in West Virginia school districts as we refine our algorithms to meet our undeniably high standards of accuracy, speed and precision.

What is ROC Watch?
ROC Watch is a video analytics software developed by ROC.ai that uses existing video cameras to improve campus safety with an automated, rule-based platform for access control. By detecting long guns and preventing unauthorized visitors from accessing facilities, ROC Watch ensures every student has a safe and secure learning environment. Learn More.
What are the benefits of using ROC Watch in schools?
The United States saw more K-12 school shootings in 2022 than ever before. More than half of teachers fear “purposeful mass homicide” in their workplace, according to Education Week. School-based violence has dominated news cycles for far too many years now without meaningful solutions – until now.
ROC Watch offers school administrators a smarter, faster path to automatically detect long guns (responsible for about half of mass shootings according to the Gun Violence Archive), control building access, and contact police or emergency services in a crisis. With ROC Watch, schools can also expand security perimeters, implement additional security layers, set up custom rule-based alerts, and prevent unauthorized access to school facilities.
How will this system be used?
Each school district will define their own policies for camera placement, enrollment participation, and data storage.
