GUN VIOLENCE | Baltimore police starts using new "ShotSpotter" technology
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Baltimore Police Department plans to use new ShotSpotter technology to help identify where gunshots come from.
The technology will be used to watch over an area of about five square miles in Baltimore, in an attempt to stop illegal gun violence.
ShotSpotter uses sensors to listen to gunfire.
When the sensors hear gunfire, they pinpoint the location and number of shots in less than 1 minute.
The department says this will allow officers to respond more quickly and safely.
