Our Founder

Gary Margolis

In the early days of social media, former University of Vermont Chief of Police, Dr. Gary Margolis, learned of safety concerns posted online. Given the volume of information shared so publicly, he realized there was a lot to be learned from these sources for the safety and security of the community.

Gary founded Social Sentinel to be an automated, easy-to-use, and powerful solution that respects our privacy rights while looking for opportunities to help prevent harm.

Our starting team developed a tool that went a giant step beyond traditional marketing-based social media monitoring services. It was purposely built to deliver awareness to school safety and security teams respectfully.

Today, our growing team consistently makes strides to increase data integration options to expand your awareness across multiple channels. 

With proven success in school districts, universities, and colleges across the country, we continue to invent new ways to protect educational communities.

We have a responsibility to be an active force for good.

Technology and Artificial Intelligence must have an ethical foundation that prioritizes unbiased practices and respects an individual’s right to privacy
