Newark, CA – ShotSpotter, Inc. (SST), provided Congressmen Mike Honda and Jerry McNerney, with a tour of their corporate headquarters and incident review center yesterday during the congressmen’s time in their home state of California.  During their visit, the Congressmen were able to talk with Ralph A. Clark, CEO of ShotSpotter, and watch first-hand how the gunshot detection technology works.

SST technology has the ability to alert police of gunshots using highly precise triangulation technology that pinpoints the location of gunshots, and pushes an alert to local law enforcement, within 60 seconds of the rounds being fired. Police are able to use this technology to arrive quickly to the exact scene of the shooting leading to increased evidence collection and better overall police work and safer communities.
