Ohio City Replacing ShotSpotter Surveillance with More Intrusive WiFi Tech

By B.N. Frank

Never mind that WiFi exposure reduces impulse control, which can increase potential for violence.

Most are familiar with the saying – “Guns don’t kill people.  People kill people.”  Because of increased gun violence, many American law enforcement agencies have been asking that communities invest in expensive WiFi operating technology to be installed for deterring crime.  Unfortunately, exposure to all sources of wireless WiFi radiation is biologically harmful and children are more vulnerable to it than adults.  Adding insult to injury – literally – research has determined that exposure can:

  1. Disrupt the blood brain barrier, cause it to leak, and kill brain cells.
  2. Reduce impulse control which can increase the potential for homicide and violence.

No kidding:  “Actual or potential effects of radiation enhancing violence and potential homicide.”

Regardless, wireless radiation emitting surveillance technology is being touted as a must-have to curb gun use and other crime.  In Canton, Ohio, the police department hasn’t been satisfied with their current gun-shot detection technology so they are now asking that Wi-Fiber technology be installed to cover more area AND increase their surveillance capabilities.

From the Canton Rep:

The city soon will have a new gunshot detection system that covers more of Canton for less than the cost of ShotSpotter.

Canton Police Department and Wi-Fiber officials on Monday presented the new system to Canton City Council, which authorized the mayor or safety director to enter contracts and implement the system. The technology operates on its own wireless network and involves units with audio and video technology. Some also will have license plate readers.

“We feel that this will allow us to expand our shot detection and also add in other type of sound detection,” Police Chief Jack Angelo said.


Unlike ShotSpotter, the city will own the Wi-Fiber devices and could more easily move them. Angelo said the largest unit is a technology-outfitted street lamp but other audio and video devices would be smaller and less noticeable.

City officials asked that locations for the devices not be shared.


While ShotSpotter has provided reliable information to help police analyze data and improve community relations, the shell casings located after an alert have not proved as effective as expected. Gabbard and Angelo said video and license plate readers would better identify the perpetrators of gun crimes.


Gabbard said the technology would be used by the department’s real-time crime center, which is not yet staffed 24/7, as is the goal. The department’s crime analyst and investigators would be trained on the system, which could be connected to the department’s existing cameras.

“It’ll be a tool for everybody,” Gabbard said.
