The technology is scheduled to go fully live by spring 2021, according to the department. Where DPD says it will implement ShotSpotter. In explaining her dissenting vote regarding ShotSpotter, Councilwoman Raquel Castañeda-Lopez said she would like for the Board of Police Commissioners, the department's civilian oversight board, to officially vote on a policy involving ShotSpotter. She said she wanted the public to be able to engage more in creating policy.  "I don't want us to find us in a situation similar to the thing we're kind of click here for info in now with facial recognition technologies," she said.  Detroit Police Commissioner Willie Burton told the Free Press last week he is concerned that the technology could pick up voices, which has happened in other cities when gunshots were fired. "These systems are normally deployed in so-called high-crime areas that are largely lived in by people of color," Burton said last week. "Once again, one of America’s Blackest and poorest cities has become the testing ground for technology that will disproportionately violate the rights of people who look like me." Police will not have direct access to audio from the sensors, Assistant Police Chief David LeValley said. Experts working at ShotSpotter send the department audio clips only after verifying that the sensors indicated gunshots. Audio recorded by ShotSpotter is permanently deleted after 30 hours of no gunshot detection, according to police.  "We think it's better that ShotSpotter monitors the sensors and that we can't access the audio freely" so that residents' concerns about police surveillance are eased, LeValley told the Free Press last week. The department held two public meetings last week to get citizen input on ShotSpotter. The department is getting $100,000 as part of Operation Legend — a Trump administration initiative to battle crime in major U.S. cities — to implement ShotSpotter.
