CPD Police Station on South Side Gets High-Tech Help To Fight Crime
CHICAGO — Chicago police say the new technology, combined with more than 1000 officers on the street each day, made this Memorial Day a bit safer than last.
Chicago police say all hands were on deck this holiday weekend and that the strategic decision support center, now in three districts, helped keep crime down.
The “Shots Fired “ technology works in real time before anyone even calls 911. So within seconds of a gunshot being detected alerts are sent to patrol officers. The location is more accurate and police have a better idea of when a gun is used because people don’t always call for help.
