How ShotSpotter Works
SENSORS AND SOFTWARE
Acoustic sensors are strategically placed in a coverage area. When a gun is fired, the sensors detect shots fired. Audio triangulation pinpoints gunfire location and machine-learning algorithms analyze the sound. Likely gunshots are transmitted to the Incident Review Center.
Acoustic experts at the Incident Review Center analyze incidents in seconds and add relevant tactical intelligence such as “multiple shooters” and “automatic weapons”. This may change how officers approach the crime scene. Confirmed gunshots are published within seconds.
ALERTS TO AGENCIES
Notifications are sent to dispatch centers, patrol car MDTs and officer smartphones. Total time from gunshot to alert is less than 60 seconds. Alerts can integrate with and trigger other systems such as cameras to pan, tilt, and zoom in the direction of a gunshot incident.
