California just launched a new website revealing a statewide picture of its homelessness problem and the efforts to correct it. The Homeless Data Integration System integrates data maintained by the 44 state planning bodies that coordinate services for homeless people, also known as continuums of care. “You can’t fix what you can’t measure and having a statewide data system will help us determine what’s working and what isn’t, important insight we can use to create accountability and strengthen our response going forward,” Gov.

The new technology, called ShotDot, is a small device that police officers can insert into the grips of their guns that register every time a shot is fired. “We never, ever knew for absolute certainty how many rounds an officer fired,” said Ogden, Utah, Police Chief Randy Watt, whose department has been testing the technology.
