Two months ago, we reported on the city’s consideration of a system to automatically detect gunfire – and one vendor’s suggestion that it be purchased and placed in part of West Seattle, as well as two other “hot spots” in the city. (Here’s the story, which included the map you see above.) At the time, it was just a presentation – but now, Mayor McGinn says he is going to propose almost $1 million for a system – brand not specified, so far – in his budget plan for next year. Read the city announcement (which includes other public-safety-budget proposals) here.
