The use of ShotSpotter sensors in US cities has raised concerns about racial disparities and potential violations of civil rights, despite claims that the technology is a valuable tool for combating gun violence.
  • Nearly 70% of people living in neighborhoods with ShotSpotter sensors are identified as Black or Latine.
  • Three-quarters of these neighborhoods are majority nonwhite, with an average household income of around $50,000.
  • Concerns have been raised about over-policing in areas with ShotSpotter sensors, potentially leading to civil rights violations.
  • Despite claims that the sensors are deployed based on objective data about gun violence, critics argue that they may disproportionately impact communities of color.
  • Anecdote: In a leaked report from Cook County, nearly a third of arrests from ShotSpotter alerts were unrelated to guns, leading to questions about the technology's effectiveness and impact on communities.
