Why This City Wants Drones to Respond to Gunfire
The first responder to gunfire in Louisville, Kentucky, could soon be a drone. Louisville is pushing a program that would connect drones to ShotSpotter, a program that listens for gunsfire through microphones placed throughout the city. The proposed program, first reported by the city’s WDRB, could make the city safer, Louisville officials say. But privacy advocates are skeptical of the tech, which they warn could push surveillance on locals.
