ShotSpotter is gunshot detection technology that uses sophisticated acoustic sensors to detect, locate and alert law enforcement agencies and security personnel about illegal gunfire incidents in real-time. ShotSpotter uses acoustic sensors that are strategically placed in an array of approximately 20 sensors per square mile. These sensors are connected wirelessly to ShotSpotter’s centralized, cloud-based application to reliably detect and accurately triangulate gunshots.
