A high-tech ray of hope in the fight against gun violence in Englewood

December 15, 2017

Police officials say one big difference is their high-tech approach. The district is wired with ShotSpotter sensors that determine the location of gunshots, as well as video cameras. Both are tied into the nerve center, which can pump out information on shootings to street officers via smartphone. That helps cops respond more quickly to incidents.
