I just received a call from Commander Timothy O' Connor of Zone 5. Apparently, he can scratch one item off the wishlist that he shared in a meeting with Homewood leaders at State Rep. Ed Gainey's office Friday morning - the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police will receive the gunshot detectors, called ShotSpotters, that he spoke about,.
O'Connor had expressed consternation that there seemed to be a holdup within the Bureau in getting the contract with ShotSpotters. Today, he learned that "a contract agreement has been worked out."
"That's an issue that has resolved itself," he said.
He said that he does not know yet when the devices will be delivered and installed.
