New Tool To Combat Gun Violence In Fort Lauderdale

December 21, 2021

ShotSpotter is credited for getting police to the scene quickly on this Easter Sunday shooting that left two children injured. The shell casings were entered into the “National Integrated Ballistic Information Network,” or NIBIN as it’s known. Chief Scirotto says crime this year is trending down and that bullet fingerprinting and ShotSpotter are critical tools, adding that more than 90% of their gun calls come from ShotSpotter notifications.
