ALPR System: ShotSpotter API Supports Integration

Home / ALPR System: ShotSpotter API Supports Integration

In the event of a gunfire incident, officers and investigators need to respond to the scene quickly to effectively aid victims, gather evidence, and generate tactical leads. Oftentimes, these tactical leads will be connected to a vehicle that was present or otherwise associated with the incident, which is when an automatic license plate reader (ALPR) system becomes useful.

ShotSpotter’s open API supports integration with all automatic license plate reader (ALPR) vendors, enabling agencies to save lives and solve gun crime investigations faster and more efficiently.
