Closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance systems that implement monitoring operators have multiple human limitations, these systems usually don’t provide an immediate response in different situations of danger like an armed robbery. To address this security gap, a firearms detection system has been developed through convolutional neural networks (CNNs). For its development a large database of images is necessary. This article presents the creation and characteristics of this database, which is made up of 247,576 images obtained from the web. This article addresses the application of different techniques for the creation of new images from the initial ones to increase the database, obtaining up to 22.7% relative improvement in the accuracy of the network after increasing the database. The database is structured into two classes. The first class is made up of people that have a gun and the second class of people not carrying a gun. The use of this database in the development of the detection system obtained up to 90% in “Precision” and “Recall” metrics in a convolutional neural network configuration based on “VGG net”, through the use of grayscale images.
