According to a recent news release , Israeli police may soon have unmanned drones that go to sites where gunfire is heard. The California-based firm already has a contentious device that utilizes sound technology to sense gunshots and inform the police, and it’s now collaborating with Airobotics to develop drones that react to disruptions. The idea isn’t without its detractors. Axios just revealed that Denver cops are employing ShotSpotter, but they can’t show it cuts gun crime. According to new data, ShotSpotter alerts in Denver climbed by over 25% in 2021 compared to the previous year, while arrests only increased by 2%. The technology has been installed in over 100 cities across the world, and Denver isn’t the only one to have issues with it.
