After Some Reluctance, Columbus, Ohio, Is Rolling Out a Gunshot Detection Program

(TNS) — After rejecting the idea several years ago, Columbus, Ohio, now could have a gunshot detection system in place in three neighborhoods by the end of 2018.

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther announced on Monday that the city plans to roll out a yearlong pilot program with California-based ShotSpotter to install sensors in the Hilltop, Linden and the South Side neighborhoods.

Ginther announced that the city had decided to use ShotSpotter for the pilot during a news conference Monday to update the public on progress made on the Comprehensive Neighborhood Safety Strategy, a plan the city began last year to reduce violent crime.
