NEWARK, Calif. and FALL RIVER, Mass., Dec. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ShotSpotter (NASDAQ:SSTI), the global leader in gunfire detection and location technology, and the Fall River Police Department today announced that they are moving forward with the ShotSpotter deployment. Fall River, Mass. Police Chief Albert F. Dupere has committed to seek funding for the renewal of the ShotSpotter contract, while ShotSpotter continues to work with the police department to maximize the effectiveness of the solution for the Fall River Police Department.
