Ojos en la escena del crimen: la tecnología que va a comprar el Ministerio del Interior para mejorar la aclaración de homicidios

November 24, 2023

El Observador, a well-known Latin American media outlet, reported on the deployment of ShotSpotter in Montevideo, Uruguay. Law enforcement is hoping to reduce response times and in turn, save the lives of more gunshot victims. The system, which is expected to go live in December, will be used in concert with other forms of technology, including high-tech scanners that will be used to recreate crime scenes. As the first installation of ShotSpotter in Latin America, the success of the system will be closely watched as a critical first step towards expanding the technology to other countries throughout the region.
