Vegas’ Famed Fremont Street Installs Gunshot Detection System
Databuoy Corp.’s Shotpoint gunshot detection system covers Freemont Street’s canopy from end-to-end and is integrated into its video surveillance command center.
LAS VEGAS — The Fremont Street Experience Canopy, which sees over 20 million visitors a year, has installed Databuoy Corp.’s Shotpoint gunshot detection system.
The Fremont Street Experience is a five-block entertainment district located downtown and features what is said to be the world’s largest video screen suspended 90 feet above the urban pedestrian mall.
Databuoy says it is the only shooter localization system company that can secure both indoor and outdoor areas, track the trajectory of a bullet and confirm a gunshot within a second.
The Shotpoint system covers the canopy from end-to-end and is integrated into the Fremont Street Experience security office’s video surveillance command center.
Fremont Street Experience security works in coordination with the Downtown Casino Properties, The Las Vegas City Marshall’s Department and the Las Vegas Metro Police Department to secure the downtown corridor.
“We are very proud to be the solution that Fremont Street selected,” says Kathleen Griggs, CEO of Databuoy Corp. “Our mission is to lessen the threat of mass shootings and we are pleased to be working with these properties to make this a safer city for tourists and residents alike.”
Shotpoint instantly communicates clear and precise alerts that can cue cameras, lockdown systems, and send notifications for a quick and effective response, according to the company. Shotpoint is said to dramatically reduce response times and enable the use of automated systems to save lives.
“It’s one thing to say when a shot was fired, but it is especially hard for the human ear to hear where it came from,” adds Mark Reddon, director of security for the Fremont Street Experience. “This system will tell us exactly where it came from and how many shooters there are. With the bigger draw we are seeing to the downtown area, I am committed to public safety. Shotpoint is the best solution on the market and will help to supplement our human factor and keep our patrons safe.”
This is the first private property deployment of Databuoy’s Shotpoint system in downtown Las Vegas.
