Funding for gunfire-location technology approved by city council for Pueblo Police Department

November 28, 2023

The Pueblo, CO City Council decided to deploy ShotSpotter across three square miles in that city. Funding for the new technology was approved by a unanimous vote of the council. “I’m confident that we’re going to see positive results from this system,” said Pueblo PD Chief Chris Noeller. “Statistically, the calls that we get from ShotSpotter come in 5 minutes before they do from our citizens…” The technology, which will be added to Pueblo’s Real Time Crime Center (RTCC), is expected to help police narrow down gun-related crimes and instances of shots being fired. ShotSpotter should be in full operation by June 2024.
