39. Motion to Renew Annual Contract for ShotSpotter with ShotSpotter, Inc. (Event No. 5991)
Strategic Priority
Public Safety

Recommend approval to renew an annual contract with ShotSpotter, Inc. in the amount of $135,000.00.  ShotSpotter is a gunfire detection system used by the Savannah Police Department to aid in crime reduction.  ShotSpotter provides accurate and real-time information regarding gunfire within the coverage area. 

The system can identify, record, and locate gunshots and explosive events. Gunfire information is then pushed to communications and notifies law enforcement with critical awareness. ShotSpotter improves the Savannah Police Department’s response and evidence collection outcomes while also providing an independent measurable process to calculate gunfire. The system also includes forensic analysis which can be leveraged during investigations and prosecutions.

The three-mile coverage area funded by the City of Savannah is augmented by another two-mile area funded by the Savannah College of Art and Design.

This is a sole source because ShotSpotter, Inc. is the only vendor that provides this patent-protected technology.  Delivery: As needed.  Terms: Net 30 days.  The vendor is:

S.S.          ShotSpotter, Inc.          (Newark, CA)(D)           $135,000.00

A pre-bid conference was not conducted as this is a sole source procurement.  (D) Indicates a non-local, non-minority owned business.
