Councilman to hold press conference Wednesday on new crime-fighting technology being used in Detroit

7 Action News is expecting to learn more Wednesday, September 23, about a form of crime-fighting technology Detroit police have been using for about a year now. The technology is called Shotspotter and it’s been credited with helping police in cities across the country. Detroit Councilman Scott Benson will host a press conference this afternoon. The Detroit Police Department installed the Shotspotter program over a year ago. It detected more than two dozen shots fired in the first week. Here’s how it works. Microphones covered in weatherproof casing are placed in spots with high crime. When a shot is fired the sensors relay information to police to help them originate the area where the shots came from by sending them real-time GPS data. That data then takes police to a small area that enables them to track down activity faster.

Seattle Police Dept. hires Amazon VP as top tech exec, promising more data-driven crime-fighting

The Seattle Police Department this morning named Amazon vice president Greg Russell as its new chief information officer — aiming to boost its technological prowess and improve its ability to use data to fight crime. Russell, 46, was previously an Amazon vice president overseeing areas including corporate applications, information technology and enterprise data warehousing. He starts at the Seattle Police Department on March 17, part of a broader management shakeup by Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole. In addition to overseeing the Seattle PD’s internal technology systems, Russell will be tasked with finding new ways of using data to track and predict crime, while balancing those capabilities with the privacy concerns of citizens. The department has been grappling with issues related to police body cameras, video disclosure, drones and other forms of emerging technology. “There will always be worries about what you’re going to do with the information,” said Russell in an interview posted this morning on the official SPD Blotter site. “If (you’re) transparent with how you’re going to use the information, and you make sure people can actually see it, I think most people will accept that.” Russell, a native of Scotland who lives on Bainbridge Island, became a U.S. citizen last year. He will make […]
