CPD Discourage The Practice Of Firing Guns At Midnight On New Year’s

December 28, 2017



A bullet fired straight up falls with less velocity, but can still do damage. This New Year’s will be the first with widespread use of ShotSpotter technology on police officers’ smart phones. In some places, the technology is sure to light up at the stroke of midnight.  “It is the one thing our officers will be paying attention to on New Year’s Eve because it is such a dangerous thing to do,” Cmdr. Buslik said.
