audio pinpointing to be used for firearms discharges in Bellwood

This is corporate propaganda (Wireless Developer Network), but it could affect law enforcement techniques in Bellwood.
Village of Bellwood Integrates ShotSpotter to Enhance Public Safety

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--In a move to further enhance public safety, the Village of Bellwood is integrating the ShotSpotter Gunshot Location System with its wireless surveillance camera network.

The integration, scheduled for completion in early September, will allow the ShotSpotter GLS to interoperate with the city’s cameras and surveillance system to provide Bellwood police with real-time notification of gunshot events as well as precise event data, detailed forensic and intelligence analysis for arrest and prosecution, and information on a shooter’s location, including drive-by shooters on the move.

Bellwood is the first municipality in Illinois to cover its entire service area with a ShotSpotter Gunshot Location System.

Is there any connection to Bellwood being on the cutting edge of this technology and Bellwood being one of the first three communities to allow AT&T to compete with Comcast?
