Tom Chittum appeared on Police 1’s Policing Matters Podcast. Tom emphasizes how ShotSpotter has been instrumental in alerting police to gunshot incidents, even in cases where no 911 call was made, such as in Oakland, California. The episode also delves into the threats posed to law enforcement officers by firearms, specifically ghost guns, which are privately assembled and lack serial numbers.
