Did You Know that 88% of Gun Crimes Go Unreported?
Less than 12% of shootings are reported to 911. As a result, eight out of ten times when someone fires a gun in your neighborhood, the police never show up, simply because they don’t know about it.
Victims don’t get treated fast enough
Residents feel unsafe at home
Neighborhood jobs are lost

Regardless of whether your city has deployed ShotSpotter, you should still call 911 and notify the police. You may not be in a ShotSpotter coverage area as it typically doesn’t cover an entire city. 88% of gun crimes go unreported and your call could help save lives.
If you’re in a city that has not deployed ShotSpotter, consider reaching out to your local police department or local city council to express your concerns about public safety and to see if they have any plans to implement gunshot detection technology.
