Recently, the Winston-Salem City Council concluded this year’s business by discussing deploying a gunshot detection system in East Winston. Both the Finance Committee and the Public Safety Committees of the WSNC City Council were briefed on the merits of this latest high-tech approach to fighting crime. Gunshot detection systems are relatively new, minimally effective, and very expensive. “The future of criminal investigations lies with advanced and real-time crime centers.” -Assistant Chief, Natoshia V. Miles
Assistant Chief, Miles told the Public Safety Committee that a gunshot detection system could have saved Jericka McGee’s life.
