Approve Memorandum of Understanding Between the Tampa Police Department and the School Board of Hillsborough County Regarding Installation of Shot Spotter Crime Prevention Equipment at Various Locations
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The attached Memorandum of Understanding between the School Board of Hillsborough County (SBHC) and the Tampa Police Department (TPD) is for the installation of crime prevention and/or data collection information equipment on certain SBHC facilities and buildings.  The crime prevention and data collection equipment would consist of acoustic sensors which would be utilized to locate and identify gunfire location.  The location for such equipment will be negotiated between the SBHC and the TPD, with the SBHC having the final authority regarding such locations.  Installation of such equipment will not interfere with the normal operations of School Board property and campuses.  Use of this system would be another piece of critical intelligence that will aid the TPD with responses to illegal gunfire incidents.
