NYPD to use sound sensors on bu …

March 21, 2015

NYPD will use technology marketed under the name ShotSpotter. It is a series of acoustic sensors that are deployed exclusively in areas with high levels of crime. These sensors are continuously recording ambient sound and are capable of detecting the different sounds you might hear, especially gunshots.

ShotSpotter then sends a signal to the police station indicating the time and area where that shot was recorded. These data are used for the Police to go directly to the area where the shot was registered and not have to search between streets, alleys and homes.

New York will begin testing this system in a pilot project that will cost the city $ 1.4 million.
