The Department of Homeland Security is looking to install “gunshot detector” microphones that are capable of listening to conversations throughout “urban areas” of Washington, DC.

According to a Request for Information (RFI) posted on the FedBizOpps website on January 18 (PDF), the DHS, in tandem with the Secret Service, “Is seeking information on commercially available gunshot detection technologies for fixed site surveillance applications. Typical coverage areas are expected to be from 10s to 100s of acres per site, located within urban areas. Due to the secure nature of these sites, a high gunshot detection rate (>95%) is strongly desired while daily, operational monitoring of the system by external parties is undesirable.”

Let Them

It would violate state laws in California, and probably elsewhere. The Fed's first mistake is alienating state lawmakers and executives by stepping on their turfs.

How in the world can they monitor and store all these conversations? Economic law dictates that you can't have more than 50% of the population dependent on the government, because the other half will stop working--so how can they afford to hire that many people? Even if they simply archive recordings rather than listen to them, what a huge waste...

Science fiction, ahead of the curve, as usual.
