LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The installation of the Shotpoint system is finally complete at the Fremont Street Experience.

The Shotpoint system by the Databuoy Corp. covers the canopy from end-to-end and is integrated into the Fremont Street Experience Security office’s video surveillance command center.

This is the first private property deployment of Databuoy’s Shotpoint system in downtown Las Vegas.

“We are very proud to be the solution that Fremont Street selected,” Kathleen Griggs, CEO of Databuoy Corp, said. “Our mission is to lessen the threat of mass shootings and we are pleased to be working with these properties to make this a safer city for tourists and residents alike.”

"This is something that is absolutely needed in the world we live in today,” Mark Reddon, Director of Security for the Fremont Street Experience, said. “We’ve got to know when shots are fired and we’ve got to know now.”

Shotpoint instantly communicates clear and precise alerts that can cue cameras, lockdown systems, and send notifications for a quick and effective response, according to Databuoy. Shotpoint will reportedly reduce response times and enable the use of automated systems that will save countless lives in the future.

“Our system provides real-time information to the responders,” Griggs said. “This information will not only save lives, but will provide hard evidence to prosecutors to get these offenders off the streets.”

According to Fremont Street Experience, the installation of the system has been in the works for a year. They also said that they will continue to work with City of Las Veas, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Las Vegas Fire Department and city marshals to maintain and safe and inviting environment for their guests.
