New technology aims to make Wichita safer and improve response times by WPD

Faster response times. That's what the City of Wichita is hoping to do by installing a new technology to areas where there are frequent gunshots.

A city council member says microphones are being strategically placed around parts of the city where gunshots occur the most. It's not Big Brother, but the microphones will be watching out for you.

Right now, this is a pilot program that Wichita Police have funded through a grant given by the U.S. Department of Justice.
