After a spike in violence, the Sacramento Police Department will be extra vigilant this Fourth of July holiday.
"We want everyone to have fun this Fourth of July but our concern is gunfire," said Sac PD Sgt. Bryce Heinlein.
The PD is using a system they have called ShotSpot to help tell the difference between gunshots and fireworks. It helps the department self dispatch, analyzing sound waves through microphones, then sends the information to the officers and dispatch.
But the problem is the technology is just in Del Paso Heights and South Sacramento.
