MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
ShotSpotter,
Inc. and Data911 Systems today announced their partnership in delivering
real-time, wide-area acoustic surveillance and gunfire location alert
and analysis services to Data911 mobile, in-car computer systems to
provide patrol officers with the actionable intelligence needed to
respond faster and safer to gunfire incidents.

ShotSpotter, the world leader and innovator in gunshot
detection
and location analysis technology, provides public
safety
agencies with improved situational intelligence and real-time
alerts of gunfire and gunshot incidents that heighten first responder
safety and facilitate improved incident management, investigations, and
crime analysis and intelligence.

Data911, a leader in mobile computing for 27 years, develops, designs
and manufactures rugged in-car computer and digital video systems
specifically for the public safety sector. Their suite of products
provides a vehicle area network consisting of: in-car, airbag compliant
mobile computer systems; in-car cameras with live-streaming video;
low-cost license plate recognition; and a cloud-hosted vehicle location
service with navigation.

As part of the partnership, ShotSpotter will ensure its gunshot location
alert and analysis solution is interoperable with Data911’s mobile
computing system to deliver a public safety solution that is fully
compatible with approved industry standards. By leveraging Data911’s
mobile computing systems, ShotSpotter’s advanced capabilities and
features can be available remotely, ensuring that patrol officers
respond faster, safer and more accurately to gunfire incidents. ShotSpotter
will demonstrate its gunfire location alert analysis solutions on
Data911’s mobile platform in ‘Booth 3205’ at the International
Association of Chiefs of Police Conference to be held October 22-26,
2011, in Chicago, Illinois, at McCormick Place West.

“We’re pleased to partner with Data911 to make real-time incident alert
data available via their in-car mobile computing systems,” said Ralph A.
Clark, President CEO of ShotSpotter. “The availability of incident
data quickly serves as a critical resource for patrol officers, and
provides them with the actionable intelligence needed to more precisely
respond to illegal gunfire and reduce gun
violence
in the communities they protect.”

“The reliability and efficiency built into our mobile computers provide
a perfect backbone for ShotSpotter’s high-speed data requirements,” said
Bret Hubbard, President of Data911. “We too are very pleased to work in
partnership with ShotSpotter to leverage the features of our respective
technologies to benefit not only the safety and security of the street
officer, but to be able to do so while capturing this type of unique
intelligence.”

Alerts of crimes-in-progress involving gunfire detected by the
ShotSpotter solution will be delivered in real-time to patrol officers
in the field directly to Data911 mobile computer systems. ShotSpotter’s
service includes qualified alerts which deliver instant review and
assessment of gunshot incidents by highly trained gunshot and acoustic
experts. That information is quickly delivered to 9-1-1 call-takers,
dispatchers and patrol officers who have immediate actionable
information to more safely approach and disarm hostile and dangerous
situations. According to ShotSpotter data, the alerts also allow 9-1-1
centers, PSAPs, and patrol officers with Data911 mobile computer systems
to respond to the estimated 75-85 percent of gunfire cases in which
residents do not call 9-1-1.
