About US

Where it all began

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 Margolis founded Social Sentinel with a simple mission: every child deserves a safe place to learn.

Since our founding, we have discovered our services stretch far beyond children. There is an entire world that deserves a safe place to learn, work and gather.

Our guiding principles

Our principles represent what is most important to us. They are reflected in our brand dimensions and influence our actions from product development to customer support.
