“I am honored to play a lead role in building out the national distribution footprint of this vitally important public safety solution,” Stobbe said today. “The Safe Zone Gunfire Detection System isn’t just another commercial product. It’s a life saver that can and must be deployed in every type of building where people come together to live, learn, worship and be entertained.”
