Emergency Surveillance Systems is in the business of
making public places safer ... and supporting the effectiveness of police and
other first responders.
During the last decade, Eric Snider and Rich Kelly
developed proprietary security-related technology that initially was focused on
As their technology was being refined, a string of landmark
safety crises in schools and entertainment venues caused the two friends and
business partners to re-direct their efforts to address a vital need: preserving
the safety of students and police officers in high-risk situations.
In short, children and adults were at risk, and Eric and
Rich had the technology to help protect them.
Further motivated by the fact that they had young children
in school, Eric and Rich tailored their Surveillance Access Unit (SAU) to give
first responders eyes and ears inside public places – from a safe distance –
allowing them to rapidly develop effective plans to resolve safety threats that
otherwise could spiral beyond their control.
Eric Snider has 30 years of experience in the
technology industry, performing a number of key computer engineering and network
technology functions. Eric has served as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at
