MADISON (WITI) -- Gov. Scott Walker signed Assembly Bill 693, Friday morning, April 11th, which provides funds for the ShotSpotter program in Milwaukee. Shot Spotter is a gunshot locator system, which uses sensors to pinpoint gunfire and quickly relay the information to the police.
The new bill provides $175,000 toward the funding of the program in Milwaukee for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. The money will allow the program's coverage area to expand to ten square miles with matching funds from the City and County.
