The Waco Police Department receives multiple discharges of firearm calls each week. These can be difficult to detect as officers frequently rely on the community to report gunshots to the police. Frequently, citizens wait to call the police and when they do, callers only have a general idea of where the sound originated.
Discharges can be reckless, with no intended target, or a subject trying to harm an individual by shooting at their person, house, or vehicle. Frequently, shootings involve a feud and result in shootings and subsequent retaliatory discharges. These events are dangerous to suspects and innocent citizens and this tool will allow the Waco Police Department to respond to these calls more effectively to prevent death, injury, or property damage.
GSD Technology will not only notify the Waco Police Department when this discharge occurs but provide a location, and additional information which may lead to an arrest. Other benefits of GSD systems include faster response times, victim assistance, the accuracy of locations, enhanced evidence recovery, enhanced reporting of gunfire, and reduction in gun violence.
