DHS run police departments are using ‘ShotSpotter’ to spy on public conversations

Gun fire on the streets of Camden can be captured by ‘Shotspotter’ a series of microphones designed to detect the sound of a gunshot and pinpoint its location to within 10-feet, before alerting police.

In one of Camden’s roughest neighborhoods the police don’t want to talk about specific locations, but the Shotspotter microphones are hidden in buildings and on roof tops throughout the streets.

The technology costs between $60,000 and $100,000 a year per square mile.

A MuckRock FOIA request revealed police departments are using USAI grants otherwise known as DHS grants across the country.
