Buffalo Police Using Audio Surveillance

The Buffalo Police have begun to utilize new audio surveillance technology.  The device allows police to know when a shooting occurs and may even be able to tell the direction in which bullets were fired.

Can such audio surveillance also detect and record conversations of citizens on the street?  Would the audio surveillance of gun shots or human voices be admissible in court?

Click on the video above where I address these questions in WGRZ Channel 2’s full report on the Buffalo Police’s new audio surveillance tool.
