Yardarm Technologies, a Silicon Valley startup has developed a specific technology that lets dispatchers know when a police officer’s weapon has been fired.  Not only would the product notify dispatchers in real time when an officer’s gun is fired, but also has the capability to track the location of the gun and identify which direction it was fired.

It goes without saying that this technology will be massively useful to police officers and aid in their overall safety.  Smart gun technology has been around for decades and with it, has brought a large amount of controversy.  Never the less, smart gun companies are more motivated than ever to develop these technologies.
