April 6, 2021

ShotSpotter alerts led to the arrest of two convicted felons. Their arrests came after the first use of the ShotSpotter technology. No 911 calls were made. “Our tactical flight officer got the alert on ShotSpotter, recognized that there was a shooting going on in the community, and what he did was to operate some of his technology and camera systems to zoom in over two miles away from this shooting and spot the shooter,” said Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony.
