ShotSpotter Data for Good Program
OUR MISSION TO EMPOWER COMMUNITIES
Key Stakeholders that Benefit From Data for GoodThe impact of our data expands far beyond law enforcement. Our Data For Good program quickly notifies schools, city and county victim services programs, offices of violence prevention, and other non-law enforcement organizations about where gunfire and potential trauma may be occurring, so they can deploy the resources needed to offer both timely and lasting help.
Offices of Violence Prevention and Neighborhood Safety
Our custom dashboards provide accurate and timely analysis of gunfire hotspots, notifying violence interrupters of where to deploy resources to areas in most need.
School-Based Handle with Care Programs
We provide accurate and timely notification of gunfire incidents informs school-based mental health practitioners as to which students may be impacted by gun violence trauma, so they can provide interventions if needed.
Hospital-Based Violence Intervention Programs
Our custom dashboards containing accurate and timely reporting of gunfire incidents enables case managers and violence interrupters to promptly follow-up and reduce the likelihood of further victimization and/or retaliation.
City and County Victim Services Programs
Our custom dashboards inform case managers of gunfire in and around recent victim and witness homes, and enable them to conduct safety check-ins, offer crisis stabilization counseling, and provide other health services.
Departments of Public Health
Our custom dashboards provide detailed analysis of where gun violence trauma may be occurring, enabling public health leaders to make informed deployment decisions for health programs, services, and investments.
Federally Qualified Health Center Outreach Programs
We provide monthly heat maps of gunfire activity to federally qualified health center outreach programs so they can direct outreach teams to enroll residents in primary and mental health care services where it’s most needed.
These Dashboards are offered free of charge to the following non-law enforcement governmental organizations: Offices of Violence Prevention (Offices of Neighborhood Safety & Engagement), Hospital-Based Violence Intervention Programs, Educational Institutions, and City, County, and State Public Health agencies through individual data-sharing agreements with participating public safety departments.
Walking One Stop, Miami, FL
Walking One Stop is the best example of collective efficacy that I’ve ever seen. It’s law enforcement walking in lockstep with community members, going right to the doorstep of the homes that have been impacted by gun and gang violence. ShotSpotter technology allows us to pinpoint where to send the Walking One Stop. It’s not so much a law enforcement initiative as it is a community violence intervention initiative.Wayne Rawlins Founder of Walking One Stop
Partnership with the Police Department, Baton Rouge, LA
Gun violence is a community issue, not a police issue. So we’re taking that same data and pushing it to our service providers. And for anyone else who is involved in dealing with the root causes of crime, we’re willing to share that data with them as well. We’re no longer holding onto the data. We’re making it public. And we are asking the community to do their part in helping us reduce gun violence in our city.Chief Murphy J. Paul Jr. Baton Rouge Police Department
Community Connections, Springfield, IL
What it's all about is helping these residents get a better path in life and how we can lift up this whole area… If you transform 11th to 18th, South Grand to Cook, that's a transformational change for the east side. That's what it's all about, lifting up all of our neighborhoods (so) that each and every one of us would like to live there.Jim Langfelder Mayor of Springfield, IL
