Meet SIREN.

SIREN – the Student Intervention Referral and Engagement Network – is the first-ever technology designed to predict the potential for school violence. SIREN assesses students of concern using a proprietary database of more than five million behaviors classified into 16 personality dimensions. The platform offers student screening, intervention, and monitoring tools for the detection and prevention of behaviors associated with troubled students having tendencies toward aggression, violence and even self-harm. Such behaviors include those related to potential active shooters, bullying, sexual predation, or suicide.

Identify

SIREN uses machine learning to proactively illuminate patterns of behaviors and lifestyle which might indicate potentially dangerous thoughts or actions by a student, staff member, or campus visitor.

SIREN provides objective and meaningful insight into the behavior of students of concern so as to empower campus decision-makers to ensure institutional safety and security.

Why was SIREN created?

Stop School Shootings. Save Student Lives.

SIREN has been in development since the Parkland school shooting, but its infrastructure has more than 30 years of highly specialized research behind its design and methods. Law enforcement and intelligence services have been using the processes behind SIREN since WWII.

Ease Counselor & Staff Assessment Burden

The administrative aspects of classifying hundreds of students with problems ranging from mild relationship challenges to potentially violent behaviors can be overwhelming, to say the least. SIREN automates the classification process while increasing intervention speed, accuracy and efficiency.

Customize Interventions to Students

SIREN designs intervention plans that closely match each student’s personality and consequently allows each student in crisis to make the lifestyle changes necessary for their future health and social success.
