ShotSpotter to Detect Gunfire in Six New Cities

January 30, 2015  | 

SST, Inc., the maker of ShotSpotter known for gunfire detection, location, alerting and analysis, announced it is now deployed in more than 90 cities worldwide, with six new cities -- Denver, Colo.; Detroit; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Savannah/Chatham, Ga.; Trenton, N.J.; and Cape Town, South Africa -- signing up in the second half of 2014 to bring ShotSpotter to their communities.

In addition, Long Island (Suffolk County), N.Y., Minneapolis, Minn., and Oakland, Calif., each expanded their coverage areas again by a total of almost six square miles added in the three cities combined. Glendale, Ariz., and both Birmingham and Montgomery in Alabama have chosen to convert their legacy deployments to ShotSpotter Flex, SST's cloud-based subscription service that includes 24/7 monitoring with real time reviewed alerts which provide additional context to help ensure officer safety when responding to the scene of a gunshot incident.

"We are excited to see how law enforcement leaders leverage ShotSpotter as a critical element in their comprehensive program to fight illegal urban gunfire," said Ralph A. Clark, President and CEO of SST. "Our 2014 National Gunfire Index, which we'll release next month, compares 2014 gunfire to 2013 gunfire in ShotSpotter-monitored communities and details a significant reduction in gunfire incidents across the U.S. in those cities that are using ShotSpotter. The unique real time gun crime intelligence we provide helps local agencies offer a higher quality of service to many underserved communities. As a result community support and law enforcement collaboration increases thereby deterring and preventing gun crime."

About ShotSpotter

ShotSpotter Flex helps local law enforcement agencies by directing police to the precise location of illegal gunfire incidents, enabling first responders to aid victims, collect evidence, and quickly apprehend armed, dangerous offenders. The ShotSpotter actionable intelligence can then be used to prevent future crimes by positioning law enforcement when and where crime is likely to occur. New ShotSpotter Flex was designed to provide police with a scientific barometer of success since smart policing leads to fewer shootings.
