ShotSpotter technology helps Pueblo police seize guns, save lives

June 14, 2024

According to FOX31 Denver, the Pueblo Police Department has seen major benefits since deploying ShotSpotter gunshot detection technology in February 2024. In just three months, ShotSpotter has alerted police to over 470 gunfire incidents, leading to the seizure of 20 firearms and 15 arrests. Incredibly, the system enabled officers to render life-saving aid to 9 individuals in cases where no 911 calls were made about the gunshots. The technology is one of several tools that Pueblo is using to address gun violence — a new real-time crime center is set to also go live soon. “It is a game changer for what is possible in law enforcement,” explained Chief Noeller
