Assemblyman Keith P. Brown (R,C-Northport) is pleased to inform the Brentwood community that he is working to obtain a $100,000 state grant to help Suffolk County restore the “ShotSpotter” Program. Amid rising concerns over crime in some communities throughout Suffolk County, this program will play a critical role by assisting police officers to track and locate gunshots fired using advanced GPS and acoustics technologies.
“I am happy to work with District Attorney Ray Tierney to secure these funds to be used in Brentwood. We should use all resources available to us to stop gun violence,” said Brown. "Law enforcement must be able to dispatch and resolve problems as quickly as possible. That is why I believe this system is a step in the right direction toward keeping our communities safe and our residents safer."
“I thank Assemblyman Keith Brown for his efforts to secure more funds to restore this program in Brentwood," said Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney. “He has been at the forefront of ensuring the residents of Suffolk County live in safe communities and continues to work tirelessly to ensure our police officers have the resources they need to keep residents safe and get the job done.”
