Seattle mayor wants to buy gunshot-locator system
Mike McGinn has included more than $1 million toward those goals in his proposed 2013-14 budget.
The city wants to install up to 52 mobile gunshot locator units, with each having a minimum 600-foot radius range and the ability to pinpoint a gunshot to within a 50-foot radius. The units also can stream video and determine the caliber of weapon that was fired with a 90 percent accuracy rate.
Hiring 10 new officers would bring the department's total to 1,310.
McGinn will announce complete details of his proposed budget next week.
