ShotSpotter Expands Verizon Partnership With Reseller Agreement for Gunshot Detection Services

Ingrid Burrington on Twitter: “So one way to read this is it’s a way for Shotspotter installations to avoid any resident pushback by burying them in a contract–instead of making SST a line item, it’s just tacked onto a broader services agreement with Verizon that wouldn’t otherwise raise eyebrows.”
