Gunshot alerts from ShotSpotter have improved response times in Miami-Dade County

September 22, 2021

When it came time for those of us combatting gun violence to put plans into action, we were intent on doing everything we could. And we are. That is why one tool we use is ShotSpotter – a technology that uses sound sensors to get police quickly to gunshot locations. Critics are attacking the company while turning a blind eye to the social good ShotSpotter contributes. I see the successes it delivers just about every day.
