New Jersey Born –  We may be international, but follow the tradition of great New Jersey inventions. Conceived in Chatham as a response to the horrific events of 9/11, founder Howard Ryan saw the same cars were parked at the train station, dusty and unmoved for a week, and knew their owners might not ever come back for them. This was the impetus for Desktop Alert. Ryan determined he could change how emergency communications were alerted in future events and could significantly mitigate subsequent emergent events based on the rapid dissemination of actionable intelligence to those in harm’s way. Armed with the desire to see that this would never happen again with such a toll on human lives and collateral damage, Ryan developed Alert Systems to make that a fact instead of a desire.

Report Drugs or Alcohol

Enables reporting student substance abuse to law enforcement as well as on when and how to search students and their belongings for evidence of AOD use, possession, or distribution. 

Two large-scale surveys of secondary school students are examined. Sample 1 included 4,179 students who responded to the California Drug Use Survey, which was modified to include questions about substance use and school violence. Sample 2 included 4,595 students who completed the California School Climate and Safety Survey, which includes items about school violence victimization and questions regarding youths' perceptions of substance use on their school campuses. The results show that both self-reported substance use and perception of frequency of substance use on campus were significantly associated with school violence. 


Threats / Active Shooter

 According to the Safe School Initiative, 81% of the time at least one person had information about a student’s plans prior to a school attack. In almost every case that individual was a fellow student, sibling or peer. Students must feel comfortable reporting information to a trusted adult and know that breaking the “code of silence” is essential to keeping the school safe. Students and teachers must also be trained to look for behaviors or activities that appear suspicious and know what to do when they observe or have information about potential violence. 

Students must also be able to use their mobile devices to send an alert during  an active shooter event!

 This mobile app enables instant reporting of the matter to police and the schools approved alert recipients.   All alerts sent by students include location based services.

Bullying / Cyber Bullying


With rapid student reports, and when adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time. 

Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.




 School safety and security is increased by limiting the availability of weapons and potential weapons on school grounds.

Depression / Suicide Concerns

Depression and suicidal thoughts are two of the most frightening things a person can face in their lifetime.

In fact, suicide is the second-leading cause of death for those between the ages of 15 and 24.
