It has been about six months since the activation of ShotSpotter in Bakersfield, and the Bakersfield Police Department is scheduled to host a meeting regarding the technology on Wednesday.

Officers will discuss how the ShotSpotter is working in the community.

ShotSpotter uses microphones that are placed throughout certain areas in the city, which send signals to officials at the sound of gun shots.

BPD says it will be answering any questions the public may have.

The meeting is free to attend and is set to be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the MLK Community Center on South Owens Street.
