Making our neighborhood safe for families. Not for illegal guns.

Studies show that 80% of illegal gunfire goes unreported. With ShotSpotter, every time a gun is fired, authorities are alerted to the precise location and can move more quickly to make arrests, gather evidence, and confiscate weapons. So our neighborhoods become safe places to raise families – not for illegal weapons.
