Shotspotter Signs New Contract

Not learning from Camden's mistake, New York City has agreed to buy and install ShotSpotter sensors. Hope it works out better this time.

I am very curious how well it will work with all the tall buildings blocking / interefering with signals. Anyone have experience with tha aspect?

City of Buffalo, NY is doing it too.

I notice that the City of Buffalo is "partnered" with the FBI on this project. I'm betting that means the FBI is footing most, or all, of the bill for the ShotSpotter system. If that's the case, the city doesn't have much incentive to say no, even if the system doesn't have a strong history of working very well.
