City Receives Update On ShotSpotter

August 11, 2017

Detect. Protect.  Connect.  That’s the purpose of the ShotSpotter system currently deployed throughout the City of Goldsboro.  This week, the Goldsboro City Council received an update on the ShotSpotter technology from Phil Dailly, the Shot Spotter Director for the Southeast region.  He says there were over 300 ShotSpotter alerts in Goldsboro over the past 12 months.  Dailly says ShotSpotter can provide officers with an accurate location of the gunfire within 30-60 seconds.  Dailly says, by utilizing the ShotSpotter technology, officers are able to respond quickly to potential gunfire incidents, which gives the community more faith in its police force. Goldsboro has been a ShotSpotter customer since July of 2016, and the technology covers over three-square miles.
