ShotSpotter technology is often used in “bad neighborhoods” to help police detect and respond to gunfire as quickly as possible. Now it’s making its way into the classroom.
As CBS News’ Kris Van Cleave reports, while it could help protect your kids, some worry it could also invade their privacy.
Advocates say it’ll keep schools safe, but could it also invade students’ privacy?
Earlier this year, New York City became one of 90 cities now using ShotSpotter technology—gunshot-detecting sensors that alert police to the location of shots fired.
Now ShotSpotter is headed to the classroom with the hope it will help police respond to an active shooter in time to prevent a school massacre.
