Bridgeport Police Chief Wants More ShotSpotter Tech

January 7, 2022

The acting police chief of the Bridgeport Police Department said she attributes a recent reduction in shootings to ShotSpotter. She argues that the city needs more of the sensor technology. “I know I have been asked several times, ‘Why are you so pro ShotSpotter?'” Garcia told members of the council’s Public Safety Committee, which hosted Tuesday’s teleconference. “ShotSpotter has been such an incredible tool for the city.”
