Shotspotter + Current, powered by GE


ShotSpotter technology is embedded into CityIQ intelligent nodes from Current, powered by GE, that sits on any street light pole. Through its proprietary acoustic sensors and enterprise-grade software, ShotSpotter detects and locates gunfire in real time.


Alerts are then broadcast to 9-1-1 dispatch centers, patrol cars and even smartphones, with the precise location, number of rounds fired, multiple or single shooters, and other valuable situational intelligence. These alerts enable first responders to get on-scene quickly & safely in order to aid victims, collect evidence and quickly apprehend offenders.
