Mayor Barrett Issues Statement on ShotSpotter Legislation

January 16, 2014

Mayor Barrett released the following statement following today’s announcement regarding legislation allocating $175K to the Milwaukee Police Department for the ShotSpotter program:

“I would like to thank Speaker Vos, Senator Darling and Representative Kuglitsch for introducing today’s legislation. I appreciate that they recognize the importance of this investment to the citizens of Milwaukee.

“Public safety is my top priority and ShotSpotter is a proven effective tool in our crime-fighting efforts. Expanding this cutting-edge technology an additional three and a half square miles will enhance public safety and the department’s ability to respond, investigate and arrest violent criminals.

“This is an important investment in Milwaukee. I look forward to talking to legislators about additional ways that we can reduce gun violence in Milwaukee.”
