"ShotSpotter is cutting-edge technology that will lead to more effective policing and, hopefully, a reduction in gun violence. Used by major cities across the country, ShotSpotter allows the police to have access to real-time information to safely and quickly respond to gun violence and shooting incidents. My Administration is committed to building strong neighborhoods, and to do that we need the best, state-of-the-art technology.

I appreciate Council's support of the City's effort to bring ShotSpotter to Wilmington, as it will serve as another method for how we look to aggressively combat crime. I hope to continue to share ideas as we all work to make the City of Wilmington safer," said Mayor Dennis P. Williams.
