CMPD officers are expanding their use of a program to pinpoint where gunshots are fired in Charlotte. The department announced this week that it will add ShotSpotter technology in the Grier Heights neighborhood.
CMPD says Grier Heights will be the first neighborhood to have the technology, in addition to Uptown. The process is fairly simple: a shot is fired, and a small piece of audio equipment pinpoints the sound and sends the information directly to police.
Thomasina Carmichael moved to Grier Heights almost three years ago, and says for the most part she likes living there. She says the only problem she has is the neighborhood crime.
"There are some bad things that happened I wasn't so pleased about that I can't get past now," she said.
To curb that crime CMPD says it'll install the 360 audio surveillance of the neighborhood.
"We have to do everything we can to reduce violent crime and this is another tool in our tool belt," said CMPD Deputy Chief Doug Gallant.
CMPD says the program will cost $50,000 to install in Grier Heights. The money will come from money CMPD has seized during the investigations.
"You want to be safe and secure. You want to be able to sleep at night," Carmichael said.
Gallant says ShotSpotter technology is possible in other Charlotte neighborhoods in the future.
