Intrusion Technologies A Life Safety Systems Provider .
Providing customized solutions to protect people from violent events.
Intrusion Technologies LLC was founded by a group of public safety professionals in 2013 in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The founders all had a belief that there had to be a way to address these incidents before more lives were lost.
Active shooter events continue at a mind-numbing pace; these events involve K-12 schools, universities, government offices, and private businesses. In very recent history, these difficult-to-predict violent events have led to hundreds of deaths and injuries, leaving communities all across our nation stunned and wondering what could have been done to stop the carnage.
The co-founders of Intrusion Technologies collectively have over a century of law enforcement and fire service public safety experience, including commanding special weapons and tactics (SWAT) teams, hazardous materials teams, and emergency medical services (EMS) teams.
The founding partners believe that a comprehensive life safety system, based on current and proprietary technology, could prevent the massive loss of life associated with intrusion attacks by persons with malicious intents in schools and similar-type facilities.
Intrusion Technologies’ founders have a unique point of view, crafted over decades in public safety, and they have channeled all of that knowledge and experience into victim-initiated mitigation products and services available to protect your facility.
