Right now there is an uptick in the number of shootings in NYC, especially in the outer boroughs so the NYPD has sought more high tech help.
This time they are using high tech microphones so the NYPD can geographically pinpoint exactly where a firearm has been discharged.
Able to locate where gunfire has occurred means the NYPD can get there themselves much more quickly or order up helicopter support to track a fleeing perpetrator.
