ShotSpotter Forensic Services and Litigation Support provides critical evidence and vital assistance to examine and understand a shooting incident. ShotSpotter can aid trial attorneys in their presentation of the shooting incident to a jury through the use of our forensic products.

Detailed Forensic Report

A Detailed Forensic Report (DFR) is a court-admissible analysis of a shooting incident captured by the ShotSpotter system that is produced by expert forensic engineers. It provides critical evidence of how, when, and where the shooting incident occurred. It furnishes demonstrative and dramatic evidence of the shooting incident by capturing the audio of the gunfire that can be replayed to a jury. This can aid in the corroboration or discrediting of other evidence in the case.

A Detailed Forensic Report can be ordered by clicking on the request button below and will be produced and delivered within 10 business days.
