Paper Abstract

Planning Systems Incorporated (PSI) has been working with the National Institute of Justice, Center for Society Law and Justice (CSLJ) at the University of New Orleans, and law enforcement agencies in five highly varied United States locations to evaluate the use of an automated, wireless acoustic gun fire detection and localization system. Multiple SECURES(r) systems have been deployed and are in operation around the county. The most recent SECURES(r) implementation has been with the Newport News VA Police Department (NNPD) and East Orange NJ Police Department (EOPD). This paper will discuss successes and specific examples of its use by law enforcement to solve crimes and reduce community gunfire.
