California startup unveils gun technology for cops..........

WATSONVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A Silicon Valley startup has developed technology to let dispatchers know when a police officer's weapon has been fired.

The latest product by Yardarm Technologies would notify dispatchers in real time when an officer's gun is taken out of its holster and when it's fired. It can also track where the gun is located and in what direction it was fired........................

    Not a bad concept really. IDEALLY, the officer would be in communication, summoning help, but in reality may not always have that kind of available time. Gun going "boom" summoning help isn't a bad thing.

    I'd like to see an app that counts total rounds on the gun and sends up the "MAINTAIN ME!" flag.
