Old technology has found a new use in keeping streets safe and reducing crime in Camden.
As CBS2’s Kris Van Cleave reported, police can now pinpoint locations when shots are fired.
Gun fire on the streets of Camden can be captured by ‘Shotspotter’ a series of microphones designed to detect the sound of a gunshot and pinpoint its location to within 10-feet, before alerting police.
“It helps us catching guys and it helps us with officer safety. Now these officers are not traveling blindly into an area where a gunshot it,” Lt. Richard Verticelli said.
