By integrating a city’s infrastructure with real-time monitoring data, police and law enforcement agencies could narrow down the location of a crime significantly quicker. Applications are in-development that rely on a network of connected microphones across a city, school, campus or business. By focusing on a particular type of sound, such as a gunshot, these applications could estimate the location of a gun by measuring how long the sound takes to travel and from what direction. Solutions this like have the potential to drive real and long-term change by mapping high gun crime areas and channelling this data into legislative efforts against gun violence.
