Brian Harrell has joined Shooter Detection Systems as a subject matter expert on the company’s advisory board.
Harrell previously served as Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
SDS works with education, business, government, healthcare, manufacturing, and other customers to deliver smart, sensor-driven active shooter detection solutions to reduce response time during active shooter incidents.
Harrell, once recognized as one of the Most Influential People in Security, will help the company understand the national security implications of gun violence and active shooter threats. He will also serve to educate the public about solutions like gunshot detection and integrated security technologies and how they can help manage critical incidents and mitigate risk.
“Brian has an impressive and well-rounded background that is a perfect fit to help further the company’s mission of raising awareness and education about active shooter solutions,” said Rich Onofrio, managing director for SDS in a statement.
“We very much look forward to working with Brian and gaining insights from his perspective that will help shape the future of SDS.”
In 2018, former U.S. president Donald Trump appointed Harrell to serve as the sixth Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He was also the first assistant director for infrastructure security at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). He also served at the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) where he was charged with helping protect North America’s electric grid from physical and cyber-attack.
