“I’m without 15 officers is a huge amount for Salinas. I have to use technology to augment what we do, to keep my community safe. I need this technology to keep us safe,” said Salinas Police Chief Filice.

Community members agreed, and have seen the positive effects of ShotSpotter.

“If you don’t experience it, you don’t know what it is like. but if you experience it you know you value that technology, because I’ve seen it firsthand where somebody gets shot in my block and you know before I get there the cops are already there,” Victor Cervantes, Salinas Community Member.
