Las Vegas’ Fremont Street Experience installs gunshot detection system

Databuoy Corp has completed the first private property deployment of its Shotpoint system in downtown Las Vegas, after completing installation on the Fremont Street Experience canopy.

The firm is lauded as “the only shooter localisation 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 centre. 

Security at the Fremont Street Experience, which is home to over 20 million visitors a year, 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,” Kathleen Griggs, CEO of Databuoy, said. “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.

“Our system provides real-time information to the responders. This information will not only save lives, but will provide hard evidence to prosecutors to get these offenders off the streets.”

Databuoy’s Shotpoint shooter localisation system aims to transform the way the public is safeguarded from mass shooters. The system instantly communicates clear and precise alerts that can cue cameras, lockdown systems, and send notifications for a quick and effective response. 

“This is something that is absolutely needed in the world we live in today,” added Mark Reddon, director of security for the Fremont Street Experience. “We’ve got to know when shots are.

“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. 

“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.”
