ShotSpotter Flex is the most powerful and cost-effective gunfire alert and analysis service available, making comprehensive, real-time gunshot detection and location affordable for any public safety agency.
ShotSpotter Flex streamlines the traditional financial and technological requirements of gunshot detection through its unique subscription service model. By eliminating the expense and complexity of a traditional technology purchase, ShotSpotter Flex makes it easier and more affordable than ever before to fight illegal gunfire and improve officer and community safety.
When gunfire occurs outdoors, ShotSpotter Flex sensors and software triangulate and pinpoint the precise location of each round fired within seconds. Detailed incident data is immediately sent to the SST Incident Review Center, our secure data processing and alert qualification facility. Immediately, an SST gunfire and acoustic expert further analyzes the data, qualifies the incident and sends a validated alert simultaneously to the 9-1-1 dispatch center or other Public Safety Answer Points (PSAP) and even directly to mobile and field personnel.
The highly trained and specialized team of gunfire and acoustic experts at the SST Incident Review Center has analyzed tens of thousands of gunfire and other explosive events captured by SST solutions. Their dedicated 24/7/365 expertise provides an instant assessment of all potential incidents, freeing up time that dispatchers and officers would otherwise spend analyzing alerts and providing agencies the level of data qualification they need to have complete confidence when dispatching based on alerts from ShotSpotter Flex. Drawing on their experience, SST experts are often able to add important situational intelligence to alerts, such as the possibility of multiple shooters and other critical data that can help personnel respond more safely and smartly.
