How CGIT Works

How the Crime Gun Intelligence Technology System Works for Law Enforcement

How it works

A series of inconspicuous sensors networked together

Crime Gun Intelligence Technologies (CGIT) utilizes a series of inconspicuous sensors that are networked together within a given geographic area that provides the capability to triangulate the location of a suspected shooting event. The data from those suspected events are submitted directly to the police departments in real-time to allow for evaluation and subsequent response. The police departments can access the data through a web-interface or smart phone devices. This proprietary technology was designed to provide a capability for law enforcement agencies to most efficiently move or shift sensors to areas of greatest need within their communities to disrupt the ongoing shooting cycles.

When a potential gunshot is detected, an alert is generated. The CGIT system allows for police department personnel (e.g. dispatcher, first line supervisor, etc.) to monitor and evaluate every gunshot alert in real-time. Should the authorized evaluator tag the alert as a gunfire, a “patrol review” of the alert is automatically generated and police units are dispatched to the scene. Police units equipped with Mobile Data Terminals have all the information related to the alert, including the audio file at their fingertips.

CGIT believes that when it comes to responding to crimes of violence we must cast as wide a net as possible to ensure the comprehensive collection of information. MORE…
