CHICAGO (INTELLIHUB) — Chicago police have installed ShotSpotter technology and cameras throughout parts of the city to help reduce gun violence which officials claim has increased with the warm weather.
“The problem with warm weather is there is always more people out on the streets […] so that brings more crime,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told NBC News.
Now officers can monitor a series of cameras and gunshot detectors from inside a command center located in Chicago’s Inglewood District where they can detect trouble before 9-1-1 is even called.
Responding officers can then locate shots fired on there smartphones and devices to speed up and aid in the apprehension of criminals.
