ShotSpotter 911 call data value report graphic

Gun violence in America’s cities is a devastating epidemic. It has killed more than 65,000 individuals and injured several hundred thousand in just the last five years. What’s more devastating – 80% of gunfire incidents are never reported to police.

Be proactive against gun violence with ShotSpotter Respond and make sure your agency knows about all gunfire and can respond immediately to the crime scene even if it’s not reported.
